comment What determines when a book will be split into multiple films?
As much as I'd love to say these decisions are driven by artistic vision, it probably all boils down to the mighty $$$. Movie making is a business, the suits aren't looking to entertain you, they need to see a decent return for their investments. The Hobbit is a prime example of two potentially amazing films being turned into three bloated chores, not because Jackson thought it was the best way to do it, but because New Line wanted another mega-trilogy. (All highly opinionated BTW, which is why I didn't put this as an answer :))

comment In Lucy, are the inserted predator/prey shots an example of Expressionism?
Could it be said that these shots were simply used as visual metaphors for the themes in the film? I haven't seen it, so I'm just going on your description.

comment Western about train robbery by detaching box car
Was it definitely a western? I ask because it sounds a bit like The First Great Train Robbery from 1978: youtu.be/WYuWpiu6QVM
