Movies on Movies: No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos

'No Subtitles Necessary' explores the history and friendship of two of Hollywood's greatest cinematographers, Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond. Little did I know that these two Hungarian greats were film students together in Budapest and filmed the quashing of the Hungarian uprising by the Soviets. They smuggled their film out of Hungary, made their way to America and started working in the film industry on low budget horror pictures. Both cinematographers went on to become two of the most innovative and accomplished photographers of their generation. An unexpected gem marred only by the constant inclusion of Sharon Stone. A little bewildering but a great viewing nonetheless.
