Dramatic biography of boxing great Muhammad Ali, which focuses on the ten-year period of 1964-1974. In that time, the brash, motor-mouthed athlete quickly dominates his sport, meets and marries his first wife, converts to Islam (changing his name from Cassius Clay), and defies the United States government by refusing to submit to military conscription for duty in Vietnam. His world heavyweight champion title thus stripped from him entirely for political reasons, the champ sets about to win back his crown, culminating in a legendary unification bout against George Foreman in Zaire, dubbed the "Rumble in the Jungle."

Virtuosity( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtuosity searches for the musical souls of the most gifted young pianists as they try to make a name for themselves at the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competiton. The film focusses on this group of young musicians as they articulate their personalities through their music: brilliant, eccentric, tender, touching, dazzling, deadly serious, wildly entertaining. At the heart of this film is the courage it takes for a 20-year-old to go onstage alone before 2,000 people, and hundreds of thousands more online, and play a unique interpretation of one of the most difficult pieces ever written for the piano. The Competition requires not only a transcendent musical ability, but a mental toughness that must sustain the soloist through three straight weeks of performance. The Cliburn becomes as much a test of character as a musical proving ground. All of the onstage brilliance and backstage drama takes place in the year in which the inspiration and namesake of the competition, Van Cliburn, passed away. This film is a tribute to his memory, and to his particular genius. - Publisher

Nixon : an Oliver Stone film by Oliver Stone( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A generation after Watergate, Nixon remains the dominant American political figure. The Nixon Presidency, with its achievements and failures culminating with the Watergate scandal, will linger at the forefront of our political conscience. With hindsight, Richard Nixon appears to be a tragic figure of Shakespearean proportions, a man whose story is at once compelling and infuriating - and worthy of further examination. In this companion to the film, which includes the complete screenplay with full annotation, footnotes, documentation, a comprehensive bibliography, and an interview with Oliver Stone, Nixon emerges as a political leader governed by personal demons. In the tradition of the tragic hero, Nixon has left us a complicated legacy. This compilation, which includes essays by prominent figures associated with Nixon and Watergate, previously classified memos and documents from the Nixon White House, and transcripts of Nixon's taped conversations in the Oval Office, sheds new light on Nixon, the man behind the powerful figure, and the political machine that catapulted him to the top

Richard Nixon fue uno de los presidentes más controvertidos de los EE UU. Mientras que para unos representó todo lo peor de la democracia americana, a raíz del escándalo Watergate, para otros fue un sabio incomprendido que instauró una nueva era al calmar un mundo dividido por la Guerra Fría
Dyn Amo by Stephen Dwoskin( Visual )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is based on a stage play that places the audience in the position of strip-club customers. Dwoskin, however, pushes the play's comment on exploitation much further towards abstraction. Each of four striptease acts is presented less 'realistically' than the one before as the camera moves closer to the faces and conventional performance gives way to something more unsettling for the audience in a form of confrontation which undermines expectations
