Milos Forman: 1932-2018

milosHe won two Oscars, for directing “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Amadeus.”

He acted, on occasion, too. Remember “Heartburn?”

Milos Forman, Czech child of World War II, famed director of 19 films, “A Walk Worthwhile” was the lastest, has died. He was 86.

“Taking Off” was his early English language hit (Thanks, Buck Henry). Even “Ragtime,” bloated as it seemed at the time, holds up.

A larger-than-life figure, gregarious as many of his characters, he didn’t work much (“Valmont” and “Goya’s Ghosts” were later credits), but when he did, invariably it was a big deal.
