Vilmos Zsigmond, Oscar-Winning Cinematographer, Dies at 85

Vilmos Zsigmond, Oscar-Winning Cinematographer, Dies at 85
Hungarian-born cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, winner of an Oscar for his achievements on “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and a nominee for “The Deer Hunter,” “The River” (1984) and the “The Black Dahlia” (2006), has died at 85. His business partner Yuri Neyman said he died January 1.

Over a period of five decades in Hollywood, his other outstanding achievements included “Deliverance,” “Blow Out,” “The Ghost and the Darkness” and such Robert Altman films as “McCabe and Mrs. Miller” and “The Long Goodbye.” And he considered it the ultimate compliment that no two of his movies looked alike.

Working into his eighties, Zsigmond also shot a number of episodes of the Fox sitcom “The Mindy Project” from 2012-14. Zsigmond ranked among the 10 most influential cinematographers in film history in a 2003 survey conducted by the International Cinematographers Guild.

Ludacris teams up with Bollywood Superstar to bring us Speedy Singh

  • HeyUGuys
Hindi film cinema has been yearning for that cross over hit for quite a while and rap-fused bhangra tracks have been a part of the promotional arsenal of every recent Akshay Kumar release starting from Singh Is King (where he rapped alongside Snoop Dogg wearing a horrible fake beard).

Although producing and not starring, this time, Speedy Singh (also known as Breakaway in outside of UK and India) seems to be a mish mash of underdog sports films like Mighty Ducks (the director helmed the 3rd part of the franchise) and cultural identity conundrums of Bend It Like Beckham set in the world of Canadian Ice Hockey.

This time Akshay Kumar ropes in Ludacris and Drake for some cameos on the soundtrack and appearances in the movie.

Here is the video clip of Shera Di Kaum which features a lot of slow motion strutting and rap posturing in front of
