Our name is Box Office Pulp, and we are probably the least professional movie podcast in the world. Which is why we're so upset that our relaxing train ride has been interrupted with murder most foul! We actually have to record an episode when all we want to do is read Dickens and eat cake. So, in an episode where everyone - yes, even you, dear listener - is a suspect, The Crew curls their double mustaches for a sit down chat about Kenneth Branagh's superb adaptation of Agatha Christie's whodunit masterpiece, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS! How did Branagh and screenwriter Michael Green give us a new, laser focused contextualization of Hercule Poirot, a character as legendary as Mr. Holmes, but whom gets none of the credit, all without re-inventing him from the ground up? What of the Old Hollywood filmmaking the film gifts us? The acting porn packed into one long tube of A-Listers? How the film take us on a philosophical sojourn while still giving us Willem Dafoe with a silly accent? And how has the history of the mystery informed storytelling to this day? The answers are FULL of the fudge! But, like, in a good way. Not that fudge is usually diabolical.
