There can be no serious discussion about cinematography without the names of Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond, two of contemporary cinema's most revered men behind the camera, who between them have worked with directors like Steven Spielberg, Robert Altman, Peter Bogdanovich, Michael Cimino, John Boorman, Brian De Palma, Martin Scorsese, Bob Rafelson...you get the idea. But what many people may not know is that the two also shared a close friendship and incredible story of how they got into the business in the first place, but all that is explored in the fascinating documentary "No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos."

No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos

There can be no serious discussion about cinematography without the names of Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond, two of contemporary cinema's most revered men behind the camera, who between them have worked with directors like Steven Spielberg, Robert Altman, Peter Bogdanovich, Michael Cimino, John Boorman, Brian De Palma, Martin Scorsese, Bob Rafelson...you get the idea. But what many people may not know is that the two also shared a close friendship and incredible story of how they got into the business in the first place, but all that is explored in the fascinating documentary "No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos."

Directed by James Cressanthis, the film chronicles the incredible story of the pair's flight from Hungary, the early days paying their dues in Hollywood and their breakthrough films that made them the revered names they are today. In our review of the film we said it presents "the kind of rare and wonderful Hollywood story we don't hear of enough. For anyone growing bitter and cynical of the business of making movies, 'No Subtitles Necessary' will make you in fall in love with medium all over again." For any hardcore cinephile, it's a must see.

And how you have your shot, as we have 5 copies of the film on DVD to give away to some lucky readers. How to win? Email us your name and address with the name of two of the films Laszlo Kovacs worked on for Peter Bogdanovich. Good luck!

Update: Contest closed, winners will be contacted via email. Contest open to U.S. residents only. "No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos" is in stores today.
