Murder on the Orient Express

November 10, 2017
Murder on the Orient Express is one of the most scenic movies I have watched; beautiful snow-capped mountains, parts of the historical city of Jerusalem, lovely green trees dot various locations as the Orient Express chugs along, blowing its stack of smoke. And yet, murder takes place on the [...]
