The Shawshank redemption by Mark Kermode ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How did a low-key prison movie which was considered a box-office flop on its original release become one of the most popular movies of all time? Mark Kermode, writer and presenter of the acclaimed Channel 4 documentary Shawshank: The Redeeming Feature, traces the history of this unexpected audience favorite from the pages of Stephen King's novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, through the icy corridors of Ohio's Mansfield Reformatory (whose imposing gothic architecture dominates the film), to the television and video screens on which The Shawshank Redemption became a phenomenon. Kermode's account draws on extensive interviews with the writer and director Frank Darabont and the leading players Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. The book also explores the near-religious fervour that the film inspires in its huge number of devoted fans
El espinazo del diablo by Guillermo del Toro ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most personal film by Guillermo del Toro,... is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish melange that, like his later Pan's Labyrinth, reminds us the scariest monsters are often the human ones"--Container

Salò, o, Le 120 giornate di Sodoma Salò, the 120 days of Sodom by Pier Paolo Pasolini ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in Italian and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial
