Why there’s a big problem with the Brad Pitt movie Bullet Train

Don’t tell me Japanese properties won’t sell to international audiences unless they’re first internationalised


Ah, Bullet Train.

I’ve been looking forward to Bullet Train because Kotaro Isaka’s book of that name (from which it is adapted) is a straight-up banger, a delightfully twisted page-turner. One of its major characters is a ruthless assassin who obsessively (and knowledgeably) quotes Thomas the Tank Engine, for goodness’ sake. That’s wonderfully warped.
