Pink Floyd the wall by Alan Parker ( Visual )
39 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The story of the wall" is told simply with the music of Pink Floyd, images and natural effects. There is no conventional dialogue to progress the narrative. The story is about Pink, a rock and roll performer, who sits locked in a hotel room, somewhere in Los Angeles. Too many shows, too much dope, too much applause, a burned out case. On the TV, an all too familiar war film flickers on the screen. We shuffle time and place, reality and nightmare as we venture into Pink's painful memories, each one a "brick" in the wall he has gradually built around his feelings

Oh my god by Peter Rodger ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What is God? In every corner of the world, there's one question that can never be definitively answered, yet stirs up equal parts passion, curiosity, self-reflection, and often wild imagination: "What is God?" Filmmaker Peter Rodger explores this profound, age-old query in the provocative nonfiction film Oh my God. Frustrated with religious turmoil, fanaticism, and fundamentalism, he set out on a global quest to understand what God really means to people from many walks of life. The result is a stunningly beautiful film featuring inviting faces and personalities who are a touching reminder of the melting pot that we call humanity-- and the mystery that we have given many names."--Container
