No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos (2008)

My Rating

Movie Info

Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond were two of the best and most influential cinematographers working in Hollywood in the Sixties and Seventies; between them, they worked with the likes of Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Brian DePalma, John Boorman, Peter Bogdanovich, Hal Ashby, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Paul Mazursky, helping shape the look of some of the most vital films of the decade and showing new ways to balance beauty and realism on screen. Surprisingly, these two

Spanning the pair's half-century-long friendship and individual work on strikingly shot films of the past four decades, pic deftly combines personal, political and cinematic histories through anecdote-laden interviews and eye-popping clips.

Audience Reviews for No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos

"No Subtitles Necessary" is an insightful documentary about noted cinematographers Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond who not only escaped Hungary shortly after the unsuccessful 1956 uprising but also risked their lives filming some of it for western news sources. After coming to America, they worked a series of odd jobs before going to Hollywood where they worked on a series of odd movies before hitting it big. That came in 1969, just as Hollywood was getting interesting, as their naturalistic styles became very influential over the following decade. And that's not to mention the documentary identifying the close relationship between cinematographers and actors, eloquently expressed best by Sharon Stone.

Considering we already know so much about "Easy Rider," why not try to include an anecdote or two from Dennis Hopper's infamous "The Last Movie," instead? Plus, in the movie's dual format, it is tougher to separate the careers of Kovacs and Zsigmond. For example, I am still not quite sure who was supposed to be the handsome one.
