The road by John Hillcoat( visu )
18 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,651 libraries worldwide
A holocaust has destroyed the world. Civilization lies in ruins. Nothing grows. The Man and his young son, the Boy, struggle across the devastated, post-apocalyptic landscape, pushing their belongings in a shopping cart, hoping to reach the coast. It is almost impossible to find any food. Life on the road is a deadly game of hide, seek, and devour with bloodthirsty bands of roving, starving, survivalist types, many of whom have fallen into cannibalism. The Man carries the curse of remembering the world as it once was, while for the Boy, the world has always been destroyed, any intimation that life was once different is foreign to his existence. Love--of the Man and Boy for each other--is the one testament to a humanity that remains, even in the face of total chaos

The assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford music from the motion picture by Nick Cave( Sound Recording )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 157 libraries worldwide
Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, have composed, played and produced a compelling and intense soundtrack for director Andrew Dominik's savage tale of the true west, 'The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford'. Dominik, who previously directed the 2000 cult classic Chopper, the biography of the notorious Australian criminal Mark 'Chopper' Read, has brought his distinctive vision to bear upon the story of the slaying of one of the most infamous outlaws of the American West, Jesse Woodson James (1847-1882). The film charts how Robert Ford (Casey Affleck) joined Jesse James' (Brad Pitt) cutthroat gang of bandits, train-robbers and bank-robbers, only to become resentful of James' nationwide notoriety, he then formed a plan to kill the deadly gunslinger. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have previously collaborated on a film score, for John Hillcoat's critically acclaimed 2005 Australian 'Western', The Proposition. Cave (who provided the script for The Proposition) and Ellis' haunting semi-acoustic score, featuring plaintive violin, eerie sound loops and mournful piano, received universal praise. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' thrilling new score for The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford captures perfectly the charismatic and unpredictable nature of its central protagonist
The road original film score by Nick Cave( Sound Recording )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 121 libraries worldwide
This highly anticipated big screen adaptation of the beloved, bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Road by Cormac McCarthy (author of No Country For Old Men) sees Academy Award-nominee Viggo Mortensen leading an all-star cast featuring Charlize Theron, Robert Duvall, Guy Pearce and young newcomer Kodi Smit-McPhee. An epic post-apocalyptic tale of survival of a father and his young son journeying across a barren America destroyed by a mysterious cataclysm, The Road boldly imagines a future in which men are pushed to the worst and the best that they are capable of - a future in which a father and his son are sustained by love. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have created an evocative score featuring violin and piano with beautiful fleeting melodies and eerie sound loops filled with terror and suspense. The threat of all-too-real cannibal gangs is heightened by disturbing loops and frenetic percussion. A small ensemble of wind instruments adds further scope. At key moments in the movie, scenes between the father and son are set to musical passages that are light, lyrical and elegiac

"Dr. Henry Marsh is a renowned neurosurgeon from the UK, who lives with his wife in their luxurious South London home. But Dr. Marsh lives a double life - every year, for the past fifteen years, the good doctor spends a few weeks in the Ukraine, offering free medical consultations and performing brain surgery on tumours deemed 'inoperable' by Ukrainian doctors. In primitive conditions and without the proper tools, Marsh and his protégé, Dr. Igor Petrovich, perform some of the most highly complex and dangerous surgeries for a poverty-stricken and hope-deprived people. Filmed in the Ukrainian winter of 2007, The English Surgeon is an awe-inspiring, humorous and emotive documentary about one man's incredible desire to help in any way he can. A truly inspirational story about a remarkably selfless individual and the country he has grown to love"--ABC-TV website
