Woodstock 3 days of peace & music by Michael Wadleigh( visu )
187 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,753 libraries worldwide
For three days in the summer of 1969, a rock concert was held on an upstate New York farm, and 400,000 people attended -- far more than were anticipated, far more than paid, far more than could be fed or sheltered or cared for after injuries or drug overdoses. It rained, there was mud, all traffic in and out was gridlocked, and the music continued, night and day. "Woodstock Nation" existed for three days and was absorbed into American myth. As depicted in this film, in roughly chronological order, the elusive memory of that nation is cemented into a pungent social documentary. Few documentaries have captured a time and place more completely--in the full flower of its moment, youth, and hope--than this one. It is also one of the finest musical documentaries ever made--if not the best--utilizing adventurous camera work, daring editing, frame mirroring, freeze frames, blackouts, and multi-angle perspectives widening the 1.33:1 image to 2.20:1 to capture flamboyant, riveting, career-defining performances, within an amazing chronicle of how the musicians interact onstage as audience members react to the musicians' performances
Who's That Knocking at My Door by Martin Scorsese( visu )
4 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and German and held by 409 libraries worldwide
Die konfliktreiche Beziehung zwischen einem jungen Italo-Amerikaner, der mit Macho-Gehabe und Schuldgefühlen seines katholischen Milieus aufgewachsen ist, und einer unabhängigen jungen Frau der etablierten Mittelschicht. Ein teilweise recht unausgegorenes Erstlingswerk, das viel Autobiografisches über den Regisseur Martin Scorsese berichtet und Themen seiner späteren Filme vorwegnimmt. Die authentische Atmosphäre des urbanen Lebensraums der Helden und die Direktheit, mit der ihre Probleme dargestellt werden, helfen dem Film über seine Thesenhaftigkeit hinweg. Eine Art Vorstudie zu Scorseses packendem Milieu-Drama "Hexenkessel". [film-dienst]

David Holzman's diary by Jim McBride( visu )
9 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
In this 1967 faux-documentary, a man tries to put all of his life experiences on celluloid. His insistence upon poking his camera where it isn't wanted results only in irritation, alienation, and a few bloody noses. As Holzman's life (and his film) becomes harder to follow, the audience is liable to be as confused as David, especially if they make the mistake of taking this whole thing seriously

J.R., detto Charlie, è un ragazzo della Little Italy newyorkese che, come i suoi due più cari amici, passa le giornate bighellonando tra bar e strade, raccontando panzane e facendo vita da 'vitellone'. Un giorno, casualmente, incontra Katy che, oltre ad avvicinarsi fisicamente molto alla ragazza dei suoi sogni, è dolce e "quasi" perfetta. Infatti, perfetta Katy non lo è, tanto che sarebbe disposta a concederglisi, cosa che lui rifiuta energicamente e nonostante le vanterie da tipico "gallo italiano". J.R. è cattolico convinto. Katy, poi, ha anche un'altra pecca, non voluta: ha subìto violenza fisica. Quando ella rivela il suo segreto al ragazzo, questi va su tutte la furie. Corre a raccontare la cosa al proprio confessore. Sa benissimo che dovrebbe vincere una severità ingiusta; ma non ci riesce. Il matrimonio fra Charlie e Katy non si ha da celebrare!
