A dark tale based on the true story of Aileen Wuornos, one of America's first female serial killers. Wuornos had a difficult and cruel childhood plagued by abuse and drug use in Michigan. She became a prostitute by the age of thirteen, the same year she became pregnant. She eventually moved to Florida where she began earning a living as a highway prostitute, servicing the desires of truck drivers. The tale focuses on the nine month period between 1989 and 1990, during which Wuornos had a lesbian relationship with a woman named Selby. And during that very same time, she also began murdering her clientele in order to get money without using sex. This turned the tables on a rather common phenomena of female highway prostitutes being the victims of serial killers - instead Wuornos, herself, carried out the deeds of a cold-blooded killer

In 1941 three men walked out of the Himalayas into India. They has survived a 4,000 mile walk to freedom. While there is disagreement on whether or not this is a true story, this film is a textbook example of the "man vs. Nature-red-in-tooth-and-claw" survival film. Janusz, a Polish prisoner of war, is forced to sign a false confession and shipped off to Siberia to rot in the most brutal prison system in the world--the Gulag. In prison, he meets a renowned Russian actor, an American architect, and a hardened Russian gangster. Janusz convinces six of his fellows to accompany him in an escape, which improbably succeeds, and then the real trial begins--a punishing race against the elements, time, hunger, and fear

Tristram Shandy : a cock and bull story by Michael Winterbottom( Visual )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Winterbottom's Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story is a rollicking, inventive adaptation of the classic 18th Century comic novel 'The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman' by Laurence Sterne. A well-known though not necessarily widely read masterpiece, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman is a bawdy romp that plays with the techniques and conventions of the novel; its autobiographical speaker is prone to narrative excursions, direct addresses to the reader, and other eccentricities that make his tale anything but linear. Winterbottom (In This World, 24 Hour Party People) multiplies Sterne's conceit to tell two stories: that of an 18th Century Englishman, Tristram Shandy (Steve Coogan); and that of the hapless 21st Century filmmakers who are adapting the notoriously unfilmable work. Slyly acknowledging public fascination with the movie industry, Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Storystrolls onto a modern film set, complete with insecure actors, scandal-hunting reporters, and balky investors. As it follows the fortunes of two families - one blood, one professional - the film makes us privy to calamities, crises, and flirtations that transcend centuries. With Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, Michael Winterbottom again affirms his protean talent as he delivers a zesty celebration of storytelling and the life that spills out of it."
