Cave of forgotten dreams( Visual )

37 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overcoming considerable technical challenges, iconic director Werner Herzog takes viewers into the interior of Chauvet Cave in southern France where the world's oldest cave paintings--hundreds in number--were discovered in 1994. These 32,000-year-old artworks--pristine and astonishingly realistic drawings of horses, cattle, and lions--come alive in the torchlight, as Herzog muses on this extraordinary place, the nature and purpose of Paleolithic art, and its creators. For Herzog, these paintings present perhaps the earliest manifestation of our primal desire to communicate and represent the world around us, which leads him to wider metaphysical contemplations on evolution and our place within it, and ultimately on what it means to be human

Encounters at the end of the world( Visual )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film, like many from director Werner Herzog, is a poem of oddness and beauty. Investigating the lives of the "professional dreamers" who conduct research at the bottom of the world in Antarctica, he finds a happily cynical lot, who regard climate change and the potential extinction of Homo sapiens in rather a different light than most people. They study penguins, seals, volcanoes, miniscule underwater creatures, and the shifting ice patterns. In this harsh yet beautiful place, where compasses are useless, and the climate is negative 70 degrees Fahrenheit, Herzog finds the scenery splendid, and McMurdo Station research center repellent. For viewers who have wondered why anyone would go to Antarctica, Herzog's film provides some interesting answers, and many scenes capturing the natural beauty of the ice continent
The act of killing by Joshua Oppenheimer( Visual )

20 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Indonesian and English and held by 1,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this chilling and inventive documentary, executive produced by Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) and Errol Morris (The Fog of War), the unrepentant former members of Indonesian death squads are challenged to re-enact some of their many murders in the style of the American movies they love. In the 1960s Anwar Congo was a leader in Indonesia's pro-regime paramilitary group, Pancasila Youth who, along with his band of dedicated followers, was amongst those who participated in the murder and torture more than a million alleged Communists, ethnic Chinese and intellectuals. Proud of their deeds, which have still gone unpunished, Anwar and his pals are lauded as national heroes, and are delighted when the filmmakers ask them to re-enact these murders for their documentary - in any genre they desire. Initially Anwar and his friends enthusiastically take up the challenge using hired actors, making elaborate sets and costumes, but eventually as the movie violence is played out and reconstructed, Anwar's conscience begins to stir and feelings of remorse surface. Year of Production: 2012
The bad lieutenant port of call New Orleans by Werner Herzog( Visual )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sgt. Terence McDonagh of the New Orleans PD has been promoted to lieutenant, thanks to an act of bravery just after Hurricane Katrina. He jumped into the murky, rising waters of a flooded jail to save a prisoner, injured his back in the process, and now he's addicted to painkillers. That's OK, though, because McDonagh is also addicted to every drug on the planet, and helps himself by raiding the evidence room after drug busts. The slaughter of a Senegalese family--parents, grandmother, and two young children--lands in his lap. The prime suspect is drug dealer Big Fate, who causes Big Fear in the locals, so it's going to be almost impossible to find anyone to connect him to the crime. What with his constant search for drugs, his high-maintenance call girl girlfriend, and a father who's drinking himself to death, is it any wonder the Lieutenant's gone bad?
