"Hailed for its groundbreaking visual effects and satirical story, Brazil is one of the most highly regarded films of all time and a bona fide cult classic. Jonathan Pryce stars as Sam Lowry, a grey-suited government clerk who finds his life turned upside-down when he gets involved in a case of mistaken identity. Categorized as an enemy of the state, Sam is propelled into a surreal romance with the woman of his dreams, who may also be a terrorist. Co-starring Robert De Niro and Michael Palin, director Terry Gilliam’s modern masterpiece is a pitch-black comedic look at a “perfect” future where technology reigns supreme." -- Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Website (accessed 11/30/2018)

"Keith Mabbut is at a crossroads in his life. A professional writer of some repute, he has reached the age of fifty-six with nothing resembling the success of his two great literary heroes, George Orwell and Albert Camus. When he is offered the opportunity of a lifetime-- to write the biography of the elusive Hamish Melville, a widely respected and highly influential activist and humanitarian-- he seizes the chance to write something meaningful. His search to find out the real story behind the legend takes Mabbut to the lush landscapes and environmental hotspots of India. The more he discovers about Melville, the more he admires him-- and the more he connects with an idealist who wanted to make a difference. But is his quarry really who he claims to be? As Keith discovers, the truth can be whatever we make it"--Publisher's web site

The death of Stalin by Georges Bortoli( Visual )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Th eone-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops d3ead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast. In the scramble to come up with the next evolution of the revolution it's clear everyone is really out for themselves; proof that comedy, like politics, is all in the execution
