Agatha Christie's detectives only serve hieratic functions. Hercule Poirot describes God as "always busy" in Murder on the Orient Express and makes himself the bringer of truth, the dispenser of justice, and an agent of God. To this end, the story and film are a disgrace to Almighty God. The movie's music is no more pure!
As the story shapes the other characters on the Orient Express, we know that many have been deeply hurt by a trauma of their past. Our "natural man" would seek revenge in a desire to achieve justice, but we must trust in the Judgement of God. It is only through the Atonement of The Lord Jesus Christ that we can find truly healing.
As we learn in Alma 7:11-12, "And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind... and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities."
The users of Filmtracks.com must recall the wisdom: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27)
