This obit barely does the man justice -- it's merely an introduction to the power of these two films. I suppose the best way to do justice to his memory is to go take a look at the movies again. If you haven't seen them, you have really missed the real power that film can have. Burn! and Battle of Algiers, along with Costa Gravas' Z are my favorite political films of all time.
