Our month-long tribute to the Academy Award winning cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond takes us back to 1980 with the motion picture HEAVEN'S GATE. Directed by Michael Cimino, starring Kris Kristofferson, Christopher Walken and Jeff Bridges.
Nominated for an Oscar and a Palme d'Or.
A dramatization of the real-life Johnson County War in 1890 Wyoming, in which a sheriff born into wealth attempts to protect immigrant farmers from rich cattle interests.
Despite the film's critical and commercial failure, French critics compared director Michael Cimino to auteurs Orson Welles and Erich von Stroheim, one French critic calling Cimino "the Tolstoy of the camera".
