business news in context, analysis with attitude

Milos Forman, the Czech director who emigrated to the US in the late sixties and during his career was responsible for One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s next and Amadeus - each of which won Best Picture Oscars as well as acting awards for their leads - has passed away at age 86.

In those films - as well as in less well received efforts such as the film version of Hair, Ragtime, The People vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the Moon - Forman was sympathetic to characters who challenged the establishment, who saw the world through a different prism, and who believed in protest as an ultimate expression of character.
