Billy Pilgrim has become unstuck in time. An otherwise typical soldier in WWII, without warning, he jumps back and forth in his life with no control over where he is going next. Sometimes he is an ophthalmologist at home in suburbia; deep in World War II Europe, surviving the Allied bombing of Dresden; on the planet Tralfamadore, being held captive by aliens in an intergalactic zoo--accompanied by a porn star. In the end, he learns that the many tragic and sometimes funny ironies of life--the randomness of tragedy, the cruelty and senselessness of war, and man's complete lack of control over his fate--remain constant

America, America by Elia Kazan( Visual )

7 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining autobiographical elements with the experiences of his uncle, this is Kazan's most personal film, his vision of the impossibility of the American dream. It tells of the struggles of a young man, Stavros, to raise the money to make the journey from Anatolia to the United States and then to find the means to bring the rest of his extended family after him. Stavros is one of the Greek subject peoples suffering under Turkish rule. His dream of freedom in America involves a psychological as well as a physical flight from oppression. But family ties continue to be asserted within him. Kazan sought a non-romantic 'documentary' style and for the first time used a predominantly non-professional cast
