On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing.

Determined to get Vargas out of his hair, Quinlan makes a deal with local crime boss Uncle Joe Grandi to frame Susan on a drug rap. Dissecting the nature of good and evil in a hallucinatory, nightmarish ambiance, this baroque south-of-the-border mystery opens with one of the most remarkably extended long takes in movie history
Hamlet by Kenneth Branagh( Visual )

52 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first-ever full-text film of William Shakespeare's greatest work, the power surges through every scene. Kenneth Branagh sets the timeless tale of murder, corruption and revenge in an opulent 19th century world, uses sprawling Blenheim Palace as Elsinore and stages much of the action in shimmering mirrored and gold-lined interiors that include the largest single set in England. The energy is electrifying, set aglow by a luminous cast. The excitement of the Bard's majestic words and an adventurous filmmaking style lift the story from its often shadowy ambiance to fully-lit pageantry and rage

Charlton Heston plays a cop in this 21st century science fiction horror story. The setting is New York, teeming with 40 million citizens, most of whom are out of work. Environmental erosion is almost complete and voluntary death is encouraged by government sponsored clinics. For their food, the people have grown to rely almost totally on a greenish, wafer-like substance called "soylent." As Heston investigates the murder of a magnate in the dictatorial Soylent Company, he comes face to face with the hideous truth about the secret ingredient of "soylent green."

Midway( Visual )

43 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the way it was--the story of the battle that was the turning point of the war in the Pacific, told wherever possible with actual film shot during combat. It exemplifies the combination of planning, courage, error and pure chance by which great events are often decided."--Title screens. In June of 1942, quite possibly the most important naval encounter of WWII took place in the middle of the Pacific, at Midway Island. While fictional, the film uses a great deal of documentary footage of the actual battle, featuring hundreds of ships of all sizes, from patrol boats to battleships and multiple carriers with hundreds of aircraft. US forces get wind of an imminent Japanese action and tries to sort fact from fiction, while the Japanese plan and execute their own attack plans. An epic on a grand scale that incorporates a huge cast, the film emphasizes the sheer scale of battles fought in the Pacific theater, which even when victorious, cost hundreds of lives
