„If you say that there are no holds barred when people are fighting or competing for something, you mean that they are no longer following or required to follow any rules in their efforts to win.”

Prawdziwi, bez hamulców, artyści


Explanation:
It's an idiom so I'm not surprised you're having trouble with it. By the way, have you finished the film?

prawdziwi bezkompromisowi/ niekonwencjonalni artysci


Explanation:
"No-holds-barred" to niezupelnie to samo co "bezkompromisowy", ale trudno w polskim o lepszy odpowiednik, ktory szedlby w parze z artysta. A moze niekonwencjonalni byloby lepiej?

No-holds-barred - Open and unrestrained: “These paintings and charcoal drawings . . . are slightly tame compared with the no-holds-barred forcefulness of his self-generated vision”

po trupach


Explanation:
To jest slang,uzywany miedzy innymi w football games. Dziwne, ze jest tu zastosowany do okreslenia ludzi. Znaczy on - whatever it takes, no rules.
"po trupach" - niewazne jakimi srodkami i jakim kosztem byle osiagnac cel.
To tez jest slang, moze bedzie pasowac?

prawdziwie "po trupach" artysci/tworcy
