Cave of forgotten dreams by Werner Herzog( visu )
47 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,881 libraries worldwide
Overcoming considerable technical challenges, iconic director Werner Herzog takes viewers into the interior of Chauvet Cave in southern France where the world's oldest cave paintings--hundreds in number--were discovered in 1994. These 32,000-year-old artworks--pristine and astonishingly realistic drawings of horses, cattle, and lions--come alive in the torchlight, as Herzog muses on this extraordinary place, the nature and purpose of Paleolithic art, and its creators. For Herzog, these paintings present perhaps the earliest manifestation of our primal desire to communicate and represent the world around us, which leads him to wider metaphysical contemplations on evolution and our place within it, and ultimately on what it means to be human
The act of killing by Joshua Oppenheimer( visu )
26 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Indonesian and English and held by 1,402 libraries worldwide

Encounters at the end of the world ( visu )
25 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,301 libraries worldwide
This film, like many from director Werner Herzog, is a poem of oddness and beauty. Investigating the lives of the "professional dreamers" who conduct research at the bottom of the world in Antarctica, he finds a happily cynical lot, who regard climate change and the potential extinction of Homo sapiens in rather a different light than most people. They study penguins, seals, volcanoes, miniscule underwater creatures, and the shifting ice patterns. In this harsh yet beautiful place, where compasses are useless, and the climate is negative 70 degrees Fahrenheit, Herzog finds the scenery splendid, and McMurdo Station research center repellent. For viewers who have wondered why anyone would go to Antarctica, Herzog's film provides some interesting answers, and many scenes capturing the natural beauty of the ice continent
The bad lieutenant : port of call New Orleans by Abel Ferrara( visu )
26 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,191 libraries worldwide
Sgt. Terence McDonagh of the New Orleans PD has been promoted to lieutenant, thanks to an act of bravery just after Hurricane Katrina. He jumped into the murky, rising waters of a flooded jail to save a prisoner, injured his back in the process, and now he's addicted to painkillers. That's OK, though, because McDonagh is also addicted to every drug on the planet, and helps himself by raiding the evidence room after drug busts. The slaughter of a Senegalese family--parents, grandmother, and two young children--lands in his lap. The prime suspect is drug dealer Big Fate, who causes Big Fear in the locals, so it's going to be almost impossible to find anyone to connect him to the crime. What with his constant search for drugs, his high-maintenance call girl girlfriend, and a father who's drinking himself to death, is it any wonder the Lieutenant's gone bad?

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 946 libraries worldwide
Filmmaker Werner Herzog explores a triple homicide case in Conroe, Texas and "probes the human psyche to explore why people kill--and why a state kills".

Herzog's inquiries also extend to the families of the victims and perpetrators as well as a state executioner and pastor who've been with death row prisoners as they've taken their final breaths

Heart of glass by Werner Herzog( visu )
52 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 575 libraries worldwide
This visionary film with a resemblance to a folk tale is set around 1800. It begins with a prophet shepherd describing the Apocalypse. In the valley below, the foreman of a glass factory has died and with him the secret of producing an exquisite glass ruby from which the whole community lives. In his search for the formula, the factory owner is overcome with a madness that engulfs the village. This is the most extreme expression of Herzog's disillusioned romanticism. A trance-like atmosphere pervades the film; most of the cast were hypnotised before each day's shooting. The screenplay is based on the second chapter of a novel, The Hour of Death, by Herbert Achternbusch, which is in turn based on a Bavarian folk legend
