Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon by Ang Lee( Visual )

57 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 3,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot over the rich and vibrant landscapes of Mainland China, this award-winning film tracks the lives of three proud fighters each trying to deal with their true inner emotions: the brave warrior who is unable to declare his true love; the woman fighter whose calm demeanor belies the inner turmoil of her yearning; and the young female aristocrat set to put into a loveless marriage, but secretly needing to rebel. The choices that each of them makes lead to a violent showdown in which each are forever changed by the surprising outcome. Traditionally, martial arts films are male-dominated, with female roles being mostly supporting. This film however, turns the table around with the central character being Zhang Ziyi

But when Bruce is exposed to radiation in an accident that should have killed him, a ferocious truth about his past begins to emerge - along with something else, something deep inside his own body that is triggered when he is provoked. . . when he is pushed beyond reason. . . when anger takes over and he transforms into ... THE HULK!
Carl Theodor Dreyer's Gertrud : the moving word by James Schamus( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If there is one film in the canon of Carl Theodor Dreyer that can be said to be, as Jacques Lacan might have put it, his most "painfully enjoyable," it is Gertrud. The film's Paris premier in 1964 was covered by the Danish press as a national scandal; it was lambasted on its release for its lugubrious pace, wooden acting, and old-fashioned, stuffy milieu. To make vivid just what was at stake for Dreyer, and still for us, in his final work, James Schamus follows a trail of references and allusions back through a number of thinkers and artists to reveal the richness and depth of Dreyer's work. Gertrud serves as a locus for Dreyer's twin fixations - on written texts, and on the heroines who both embody and free themselves from them."--Jacket
