The cabinet of Dr. Caligari : a film in six acts( Visual )

3 editions published in 2002 in 3 languages and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« The most brilliant example of that dark and twisted film movement known as German expressionism, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a plunge into the mind of insanity that severs all ties with the rational world. Director Robert Wiene and a team of designers crafted a nightmare realm in which light, shadow and substance are abstracted, a world in which a demented doctor and a carnival sleepwalker perpetuate a series of murders in a small community. This Kino on Video edition is taken from a 35mm print restored by the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv of Germany, featuring the original color tinting and toning. The title translation is by Kinograph Montréal. » -- Conteneur

One of the major works of German silent cinema, Murnau's class drama depicts the fall of the respected, aging, hotel doorman of a posh 1920s Berlin hotel, who is cruelly stripped of his position and reduced to a bathroom attendant, before his fortunes turn and he becomes a millionaire. The film was groundbreaking for its expressive, mobile camera work, which imparts information visually, without subtitles. The camera on a trolley glides, rises, zooms, or weaves where the story takes it. The camera takes part in the action and becomes a character in the drama

Battleship Potemkin : from the series "The year 1905"( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in No Linguistic content and Russian and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergei Eisenstein was commissioned by the Soviet government to make a movie commemorating the failed uprising of 1905, a mere 20 years after the actual incident. Eisenstein duly hails as heroes the people whose actions were regarded as traitorous in 1905. It began when sailors on the Potemkin protested that the meat they were being fed was maggot infested. In response, the commander ordered that ten random sailors to be executed by firing squad, at which the crew turned on the officers and killed them all. The oppressed people of Odessa joined the revolt to show their rejection of the czarist regime--which sent Cossack troops--who then mowed down both rioters and innocent citizens without mercy. The film was banned at various times in the US and France, and for a longer time than any other film in British history; even Stalin banned it, at a time when mutiny was against the party line. It remains remarkable for the way it builds tension over a brisk 69 minutes, and in the right setting with the right audience, can still reveal its inflammatory power

But as hopes for a caring parent metamorphose into fear of abuse, a family getaway becomes the background for self-discovery and the destruction of deeply rooted emotional investments. As it turns out, the missing spots in the two boys' pasts run deep, the distance between imagined fatherhood and the man in its symbolic center is breathtaking, and Andrei and Ivan's need for a newly articulated relationship with parental guidance is a source of impenetrable pain
