"Michael Moore escribe y dirige la cinta ganadora del Oscar en la categoría de Mejor Documental 2003 y es considerada por críticos especializados como el mejor documental de toda la historia. "Masacre en Columbine" examina la fascinación del pueblo norteamericano por las armas de fuego. De una forma honesta y crítica, nos presenta puntos de vista de los ciudadanos ordinarios sobre las armas, testimonios de personajes como el controvertido Marilyn Manson, así como una memorable entrevista con el actor Charlton Heston que sorprenderá a propios y extraños. Incluso contiene pequeños fragmentos inéditos de la matanza ocurrida en el poblado de Littleton que da origen a la película. La cinta explora mitos y realidades detrás de la cultura de las armas dejándole a los propios espectadores tomar conciencia de las dimensiones del problema que desafortunadamente es más real de lo que parece."--Envase

Some like it hot by Billy Wilder( Visual )

32 editions published between 1959 and 2009 in English and German and held by 3,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Curtis and Lemmon, on the run after witnessing the St. Valentine's massacre, masquerade in drag as members of an all-girl band. A satiric mix of slapstick and screwball comedy, this film is a tribute to American naivete and, for a mainstream film made in the fifties, exceptionally open in its treatment of androgyny. Curtis, with the image of a glamour drag queen, retains his heterosexual orientation but becomes more sympathetic, sincere and loving as a direct result of his experience. Lemmon, a campy transvestite, comes to totally identify with his role as a woman which produces one of the great final lines in screen comedy. Wilder's film shows the influence of Howard Hawks' comedies, most notably Scarface and I Was a Male War Bride with Curtis recalling Cary Grant in screwball comedies. Wilder plays with the motif of the sexually aggressive female and shy male
