Shoah by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a decade in the making, this monumental investigation of the unthinkable: the murder of more than six million Jews by the Nazis. Using no archival footage, Claude Lanzmann instead focuses on first-person testimonies (of survivors and former Nazis, and other witnesses), employing a circular, free-associative method in assembling them. The intellectual yet emotionally overwhelming Shoah is not a film about excavating the past but an intensive portrait in which the past is always present

La belle noiseuse by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

16 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A painter suffering artistic burnout is inspired by his meeting with Marianne at his Languedoc villa. She is persuaded to pose for him as he attempts to recover the 'masterpiece' he had abandoned ten years earlier. The film becomes a playing out of the process of creation (of a painting/a film), a battle of wills between the artist and his model, the artist's wife (who has been his model) and Marianne's lover. This package contains two versions of the film both prepared by Rivette - the four-hour version more in the nature of a performance piece, which explains the process in exhaustive detail (including the hand of an actual artist, Bernhard Dufour, at work) while the two-hour version (minus Dufour's hand) is brisker, more in the nature of a short story, which provides a different perspective on the relationships

The film is based on Kafka's unfinished novel "Der Verschollene". It doesn't deal with the real United States but it is rather a kind of allegory taking place at no specific time in history. Straub and Huillet's version is about class relations and about the society that is created by capitalism, which is utterly cruel, capricious and ludicrous

Doch die Gefühle sind stärker als erwartet. Nach und nach kommen sich die beiden, die sich einst gegenseitig zur Weissglut brachten, wieder näher und beginnen eine neue Romanze, die schnell die alte verhängnisvolle Macht über sie gewinnt. Diese Liebe ist von einem unüberwindlichen Gegensatz geprägt, der das Paar zugleich aneinander bindet und trennt. Ehemals angestaute Aggressionen schaffen sich Raum und der Versuch, die zerstörerischen Kräfte der grenzenlosen Leidenschaft zu bändigen, scheint nur schwer zu gelingen
