A Hard Day's Night by Richard Lester( Visual )

"Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day's Night, in which the bandmates play slapstick versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, uncluding the title track, "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," and "If I Fell," A Hard Day's Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time."--Back cover

Ekel by Hans Deppe( Visual )

7 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in German and English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eine sensible Londoner Maniküre, die sich in einer von Männern dominierten Welt hilflos und bedroht fühlt, wird allmählich das Opfer von Wahnvorstellungen. [...] Von einer atmosphärisch dichten Milieubeschreibung ausgehend, macht sich die Inszenierung zunehmend den Blickwinkel der Heldin zu eigen und verfremdet den banalen Alltag zu einem Inferno schockierender Visionen. Ein handwerklich perfekter Psycho-Thriller, der mit Elementen der Horror-Dramaturgie arbeitet und dem Zuschauer seine eigene voyeuristische Perspektive vor Augen führt." [film-dienst.de]

Docteur Folamour ou: Comment j'ai appris à ne plus m'en faire et à aimer la bombe by Stanley Kubrick( Visual )

5 editions published between 1963 and 1999 in English and French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Strangelove is a scathing, controversial chronicle of a society gone haywire, its technology dominating and ultimately triumphing over humanity. What would happen if an insane, communist-hating U.S. Army general initiated a B-52 attack on the Soviet Union? And what would happen if the general committed suicide before deciphering the code that would recall the bombers? Furthermore, what would happen if the Russians themselves had their own doomsday device--a weapon with the power to eliminate the entire planet? In an attempt to arrive at the inevitable answers, Kubrick creates a frighteningly comic gallery of grotesque incompetents whose titanic ineptitude tickles the funny bone and sends chills up the spine."
