Bowling for Columbine by Michael Moore( Visual )

65 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 3,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his trademark charm and biting wit, award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore sets off on a rollicking journey to the heart of America, hoping to discover why the American pursuit of happiness is so riddled with mass violence. Moore boldly asks a question that post-September 11, no other American dare ask: "Are we a nation of gun nuts or are we just nuts?" For Americans, it is a damningly funny indictment of a culture of fear that is armed to the teeth and running amuck. For everyone else, it is a humorous warning about what could happen to any country that chooses the American Way of creating a massive permanent underclass that must be fought off with a constitutionally-protected Uzi

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.

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 )

38 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,380 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

Jack London's The Call of the Wild, one of the finest wilderness novels ever written, is told entirely from the point of view of the dog Buck, a domesticated favorite in a wealthy California household who is stolen and brought to the far North to be a sled dog.
