Natural born killers by Quentin Tarantino( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and German and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Natural Born Killers is a disturbing and brilliant indictment of violence in the media and American celebrity culture. Mickey and Mallory Knox, outlaw lovers on the run, go on a killing spree of startling viciousness - and find themselves transformed into cult celebrities by the tabloid media. The film, directed by Oliver Stone, departed significantly from Tarantino's original screenplay, so much so that Tarantino removed his name from the screenplay credits. Now available in America for the first time, the original screenplay offers fans and film buffs of all stripes the opportunity to compare Tarantino's original vision with Stone's version of the story of Mickey and Mallory."--Jacket

La fabbrica di cioccolato( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il misterioso Willy Wonka gestisce la più importante fabbrica di cioccolato del mondo. Un giorno, Willy, che nessuno conosce e che non ha operai per timore che i suoi segreti di fabbricazione possano essere rivelati, indìce un concorso per permettere a cinque fortunati ragazzi di visitare la sua fabbrica. Il più meritevole dei cinque bambini riceverà un premio particolare, ossia l'azienda in eredità. Charlie, che vive con i genitori e quattro nonni in una topaia, trova nell'unica tavoletta regalatagli per il suo compleanno il biglietto d'oro che gli permette l'accesso alla fabbrica, nella quale lo accompagnerà il simpatico nonno Joe, ex operaio nella stesso stabilimento. Joe si ritrova a visitare la fabbrica insieme agli altri quattro bambini prescelti (il goloso Augustus, l'instancabile masticatrice di chewing-gum Violetta, la viziata Veruca, e il campione di videogame Mike). La fabbrica appare come un universo fantastico in cui tutto è fonte di meraviglia, dagli instancabili operai O ompa Loompa, agli scoiattoli che puliscono le nocciole. Nel corso della visita il carattere di ogni bambino comincia a palesarsi per quello che è e uno dietro l'altro, a causa dei loro caratteristici vizi, i bambini saranno espulsi dalla fabbrica: l'ingordo Augustus, l'appariscente Violetta, la sdegnosa Veruca e il borioso Mike subiranno una sorta di pena del contrappasso che li annullerà in relazione alla loro colpa. Il sensibile Charlie, invece, si mostra meritevole di ereditare la fabbrica, ma dato che la condizione per ottenere il premio è quella di trasferirsi con Willie Wonka, il bambino rifiuta per il troppo affetto che nutre nei confronti della sua famiglia. La scelta di Charlie colpisce Willie Wonka al punto da indurlo ad un riavvicinamento con il padre con il quale non aveva avuto più rapporti sin dall'adolescenza
