Murder on the Orient Express - REVIEW

Film of the Day #190/ 300

With an all star murder mystery cast, Sidney Lumet’s Murder on the Orient Express is undeniably the best adaptation of any Agatha Christie novel. Albert Finney is marvelous as the dapper Belgian detective Hercule Poirot in this classy and glamorous whodunit. An elegant and lavish production, Murder on the Orient Express is a cinematically beautiful and flawlessly directed movie that steams along tracks without ever going off the rails. Lumet keeps you guessing from departure to destination is this underrated masterful classic.
