King Lear by William Shakespeare( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although it may seem radical even to attempt a silent version of a Shakespeare play, such films were frequently made throughout the 1910s. This adaptation of King Lear had the advantage of starring Frederick Warde, who was renowned for his many stage performances as Lear. Warde is seen in rare form here as he inhabits the character with particularly expressive physicality. This cinematic classic from 1916 has been lovingly restored and features an all-new soundtrack
Bacon (1910-1992) by Francis Bacon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Francis Bacon revolutionised figurative painting in the 20th century. The English painter unmasked his subjects in a provocative and ruthless manner. Deformed bodies, grimacing faces and the materiality of colour make us aware of brutality and sexuality, existential abysses and the fears of existence. Works like the portrait "Pope Innocent X" from Velázquez inspired him just as much as Eisenstein's epic film "The Battleship Potemkin" for his famous motif: the Scream. Author Melvyn Bragg accompanies the painter throughout his day. This begins in his London atelier, leads us on to his favourite pub and ends up in a gambling club in Soho." -- Container

Auch "Magere Zeiten" ist ein Film seiner Firma "Handmade Films". Die Geschichte dreht sich um ein Schwein, das in der englischen Nachkriegszeit eigentlich rationiert werden müsste.Nun streiten sich alle um das arme Tier ... Bei diesem Film bleibt kein Auge trocken !
