No Subtitles Necessary

I enjoyed this documentary about Lazslo and Vilmos very much. I had no idea these two cinematographers escaped communist Hungary with hours of film about the revolution to become two of the ASC's most sought-after camera men. Films that they've worked on include the Deer Hunter, Frances, Easy Rider, Paper Moon, and Deliverance.

I highly recommend No Subtitles Necessary and plan to view as many L and V films possible, esp the campy low-budge ones I'd never heard of before. (They weren't allowed to join the union when they got to Hollywood and were told to come back when they "learned to speak English!" Hence, the low-budge work to get by at first).
