| Les Bernstien's 'Night Train'
I found 'Night Train' very compelling. It visualizes the human condition in a variety of aspects in a non-American locale, specifically Tijuana. A person, John Butcher, searches for a lost brother like a rampaging bull with eyes only for his goal. He has to find his brother. He has to know what happened regardless of whose feathers he ruffles. Like a bull, he is eventually disposed of after he finds a package containing money that is fervently sought by a Don Alamada. John won't live long enough to savor any of the fruits of his findings. John has tuberculosis, but he still intends to satisfy his own curiosity.

Oh, the surprises he finds in the box and the hotel!

The film contains memory sequences like those of a dream world and a number of gun and ax wielding sycophants. Bottom line: money is the root of all evil.
