I woke up to this astonishing news this morning and was so depressed by it. 86 is a long life, but he's given so much pleasure down through the years, and I hate to lose anyone who's done that so superbly.

Thoughts go out to family and friends.

One of the unique cinematic voices. Some movies, even some really great ones, you watch and think that any competent director could have made it. Milos Forman movies tended to be movies only Milos Forman could have made.

The first film I saw from him was The Firemen's Ball (1967) which put him in trouble with the communist regime of Czechoslovakia.

Too much to say about his abilities to capture and articulate the individual and social psychology of human beings who strive for freedoms in the face of lethal opposition.

If he never received the Kennedy Center's Medal of Freedom, he damned well should have.

Some will argue that film is a medium where anything but artistry will thrive; but make no mistake,
Milos Forman is a name that one can readily use to win that argument.
