    Didn't like Murder on the Orient Express. Not a fan of Agatha Christie, nor was I too impressed with the film despite the cast (Connery hangs around a lot in the background).

    I recommended Network to an colleague. He liked it and of his own accord d/l'ed DDA and ended up liking it too.

    Then he recommended Jarmusch to me.

    More normal transition from Lumet's films would be Norman Jewison's films (Alan Pakula another one). Jewison's ...And Justice For All for Pacino fans.

    Kid in this forum, qostins for you.

    1) What other films of this director-writer should I be watching?
    2) Did you like the way the robbery subplot ended - the fall from the tree and all that? I loved it. I think that moment made the film for me.
    3) Do you have a bike?

    Thank you.
    1) Rosetta, L'Enfant, Le Fils, followed by The Promise & Lorna's Silence
    2) I liked the robbery episode (the word 'subplot' seems a tad contrived for the Dardenne genre). Like you, the 'moment' made the film. We are in that moment. We understand the complexity of the scene and yet, it's so ridiculously sliced from life, that you find the expression 'slice of life' bastardized elsewhere. The dangers of childhood & of the child, put in to context by parenthood & of the parent, is a recurring theme in their oeuvre, but never at expense of the true-to-life narrative & the singular 'ironic' feeling, the direful & desperate tendencies of the characters who would be reduced to stereotypes in any other hands. There's no annoyance or degradation, only empathy & understanding. Just indulge with the moment, never judge.
    3) I did. Did you? But It never had any meaning to me. But to the kid here, it's the only ever material possession he had, that a kid of his age would have faulted it to be more than just utilitarian, an emotional belonging. And this kid's turbulent, destitute nature feels associative with the bike & movement. Ultimately when he lets her ride it, it feels like a big moment.. I heart Dardennes.
    ...an artist without an art.
