Another great man of the "ancient film process", Cinematographer , a loss, compared to what we have mow is like the loss of
a classical painter, a celluloid picture filler. I wonder where our film culture will end, the greats are dying or gone, the shaky
cam rules, along with quick cutting in editing. Long will the Classic films live. R.I.P. Vilmos, your immortality is guaranteed.
Condolancies to your Family and friends

For sure ... I'd be shocked if I see crappy handheld motions like todays assholes use in any of his works
