Milos Forman, the renowned director of such iconic films as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) and Amadeus (1984), has passed away aged 86.
Born in the Czech Republic, Forman became well known in Hollywood after directing the hit drama One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, starring Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. The film won five Oscars.
Forman would later direct ‘lesser’ films such as Valmont (1989) and The People v Larry Flynt (1996), which failed to reach the success of his previous endeavours.
Forman passed away peacefully in hospital on Saturday morning.
