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

The tragedy of Macbeth by Roman Polanski( Visual )

8 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roman Polanski imbues his unflinchingly violent adaptation of William ShakespeareĐs tragedy of ruthless ambition and murder in medieval Scotland with grit and dramatic intensity. Jon Finch and Francesca Annis give performances charged with fury and sex appeal as a decorated warrior rising through the ranks and his driven wife, scheming together to take the throne by any means. Coadapted by Polanski and the great theater critic and dramaturge Kenneth Tynan, and shot against a series of stunning, stark British Isle landscapes, this version of Macbeth is among the most atmospheric and authentic of all Shakespeare films." [Covertext Criterion]

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]
