The film world has lost one of the greatest directors of all time with the tragic death of Milos Forman after a short illness at the ripe old age of 86. Forman transcended time, genres and styles. Hair? That was Forman. Classic. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest? That was Forman. Classic. The People VS Larry Flynt? That was Forman. Classic. Man On The Moon? That was Forman. Classic. The Fireman’s Ball? That was Forman. Classic. Take those movies in isolation and they are very different beasts but see them as a glorious stack of work by one powerful thinker and you can see ideals and messages and intelligence that bleeds off of the screen, straight into the brains and hearts of cinephiles everywhere. One of the greatest of all time, we may never see his like again. Slip R.P. McMurphy into the player and raise a glass to one of the best.
