The Breakdown of Milos Forman: 'Amadeus', 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', 'The People vs. Larry Flynt', 'Man on the Moon', and 'Hair'


It is a special episode this week that we are calling The Breakdown of Milos Forman where we celebrate the renowned director by reviewing five of his biggest movies. It doesn't get much bigger than winning a Best Picture and a Best Director, which he did with two movies. We will review the Best Picture winner that got him established in Hollywood with One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and then his other Best Picture winner is the ambitious and epic fictionalized account of the life of Mozart in Amadeus. We also review two more biopics in the story of Hustler founder who finds himself the face of free speech in The People vs. Larry Flynt and then the story about the life of Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon. Then it is time to cap off the show with a little song and dance in the rock musical Hair. As always if you enjoy the show then please spread the word to other movie lovers.

NOTE: Apologies for some technical issues on the show as Skype was out for vengeance this weekend.
