WATCH: Train departure for the end of the line, from "Dead Man" (1995)
Films provide much of our inspiration for and ideas about travel. It lends itself naturally to adventure. This scene from "Dead Man" (1995) is, for better or worse, always in the back of my head when I hop the elektrichka in Ukraine out to a remote village... does it represent a human anxiety associated with travel or a particular American fear of the rest of the world?
