Cave of forgotten dreams by Werner Herzog( Visual )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review of this 2011 film: "Compelling documentary about the Chauvet Cave, discovered in 1994 in the south of France, which contains some of the earliest known human cave paintings, perfectly preserved and dating back over 30,000 years. Writer-director Herzog and his three-person film crew were allowed restricted access inside the cave by the French government and, with their 3-D cameras, capture a sense of genuine physical and historic wonder. Herzog's philosophical narrative maunderings sometimes veer into the obtrusive but mostly he lets the spectacular images speak for themselves. 3-D." - Leonard Maltin's Movie guide. Rating 3

" ... a richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life 'horse-whisperer', he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses - and people - with his understanding, compassion and respect"--Container

In the loop by Armando Iannucci( Visual )

When Britain's Secretary Of State For International Development Simon Foster states, in the midst of a radio interview, that a war in the Middle East in "unforeseeable," it doesn't follow his government's "line" on events. The problem is that war is not unforeseeable, what with America itching to invade somewhere in the Middle East and the British government loyally following. Unfortunately, Foster suspects nothing about the firestorm to follow. By the next day, Foster is the target of the Prime Minister's director of communications Malcolm Tucker, and the focus of attention for anti-war American diplomat Karen Clarke. After US General George Miller and State Department hawk Linton Barwick jump into the mix, Foster's mountain of an ill-chosen remark turns into a series of festering molehills. In the end, one thing is clear: grave matters involving global power cannot be separated from the pettiness of democratic governance, which is impelled by careerism, vanity, moral compromise and--at least in London--by ear-singeing profanity
