Movie: The ABC Murders (TV Mini-Series – )(2018)[tt8463714] Set in the 1930s, a time when Britain is dangerously divided and suspicion and hatred are on the rise, the story sees Poirot face a serial killer known only as A.B.C. As the body count rises, the only clue is a copy of The ABC Railway Guide at each crime scene. Poirot's investigations are continuously thwarted by an enemy determined to outsmart him.

There are many things to fault here: Malkovich's Poirot is tiresome. Not once yet has he managed to pronounce the French correctly, and his performance otherwise- whilst intriguing- doesn't really suit the role well enough. Sarah Phelps is up herself. 'And Then There Were None' was really good, but everything she has done since is painful. This entire screenplay screams "written by someone who's terrified of writing dialogue" which any writer will know, is not a good situation to be in. This results in a director/writer duo who are so obsessed with making every shot artsy and pretty (which they are to be fair) that they forget to actually have anything happen in them. This results in an incredibly dreary and excruciatingly slow drama (if you can call it that). Everyone knows by now about all the changes Phelps has made (some kind of make sense but feel unnecessary, others are potentially very problematic, and the rest are simply outright ridiculous). The trick here is that to most it looks artistic, but really it's pretension. Please Sarah. Please just stop. We'll give you the invasion plans, they're on my desk, I'll just go and get them.
