16 Train Movies To Check Out Before 'Bullet Train'
Trains have had an interesting history alongside cinema, even at the very beginning of the art form. Any film student can tell you about the unverified account of early film audiences fleeing in terror at The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station, thinking of it as a real train heading toward them. Trains provide a nice vehicle (pardon the pun) for film stories.
Having a movie set on a train can definitely raise the stakes, regardless of genre. It creates potential isolation of all the main characters being stuck in one setting (the train). It can open up discussion about class issues and transportation in general from a wide range of periods in time. Plus, think of all of the action sequences featuring a train going off track or heading towards peril, or two people climbing on top of a moving train, and so on.
Here are some quality movies involving trains for you to check out.
