Apocalypse now redux by Francis Ford Coppola( Visual )

8 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neu geschnittene und um 49 zusätzliche Minuten mit bislang noch nie gezeigtem Material verlängerte Fassung von Francis Ford Coppolas Vietnam-Drama "Apocalyse Now" (1976-79), die den Intentionen des Regisseurs deutlicher als die vor mehr als 20 Jahren veröffentlichte Fassung entspricht. Basierend auf einem Roman von Joseph Conrad, wird die Grausamkeit des Krieges ebenso deutlich wie seine Sinnlosigkeit. Die überarbeitete Fassung, die vermeintlichen Nebenhandlungen größeren Raum zubilligt, setzt neue Maßstäbe und lässt noch eindeutiger in die Abgründe der menschlichen Seele blicken. (

The conformist by Bernardo Bertolucci( Visual )

21 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcello Clerici, a fascist agent in Mussolini's Italy, recalls his past while on a mission to kill one of his former teachers, now an anti-fascist in Paris. Haunted by a childhood incident, Clerici has subordinated his values to the pursuit of what he perceives to be normal. Bertolucci amalgamates Marx with Freud to relate the psychological and the personal with the political and social. In articulating the contradictions that mark the mind of a fascist, the film is quasi-expressionist in its exaggeration of space and hallucinatory in its mingling of what Clerci actually sees, does not see or thinks he sees

Exorcist : the beginning by Renny Harlin( Visual )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thinking that he had glimpsed the face of Evil as a witness to atrocities committed on the innocent during WWII, Lankester Merrin lost his faith in his fellow man and the Almighty. He renounced his vocation, and is now an archaeologist in Africa. A collector of rare comes to him with an odd request. An old Christian Byzantine church has been unearthed in Kenya, surprisingly intact, as if it were buried right after its completion. Merrin is asked to find an ancient relic hidden within the church before a British expedition can. Interested, Merrin agrees to take the job. Beneath the church, something much older and malevolent sleeps, waiting to be awoken. The blood of innocents flows freely, but the horror has only just begun. In the place where Evil was born, Merrin will finally see its true face

Cinematographer style( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Belying what many think of as the technical orientation of their job, cinematographers can be remarkably loquacious, a fact evident from the beginning of the interviews with 110 prominent practitioners of the craft. The men and women interviewed are interested in discussing the aesthetics and emotional content of light, composition, movement, and color--the building blocks of the film image. Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers
