Last Passenger
You know what you're getting with Omid Nooshin's “Last Passenger” as soon as the brilliant opening credits roller-coaster their way on screen. Even the title, by making the first “a” from both words form one simple train track, foreshadows the idea of what this retro ride is all about; simple fun. And calling it “simple” is no slight. Cluttered movies are a dime a dozen these days – be it with overabundance of characters like in “Grand Budapest Hotel,” convoluted plots like the U.S.-cut version of “Snowpiercer” or an action scene every five minutes in just about every modern comic book film. So when you have a cut-and-dry premise like Nooshin has here, the trap of boredom is much harder to avoid without the ability of throwing the whole kitchen sink at the audience.
