Forman worked only sporadically in the following years, directing such diverse fare as "Heartburn", "Valmont", "Man on the Moon" and "The People vs. Larry Flynt".

Forman said the film's central issues of censorship and free expression were influenced by his youth in Eastern Europe, when filmmakers and other artists were limited in what they could say by the communist regime. His next film however would prove to be his salvation; "One Flew Over a Cuckoo's Nest".

Forman's earliest work in the United States was Taking Off, which turned out to be a critical and commercial failure despite winning the Grand Prix at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival. The film was a huge success, earning nine Oscar nominations and winning five - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor and Best Actress. I have seen One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest enough times to be able to silently mouth along with the movie. Forman immigrated to America and found the opportunity to make films for major studios.

The People vs Larry Flynt (1996).


One of his last films was Goya's Ghosts in 2006, which was "an intricate examination of persecution in Spain in the era of religious persecution and Napoleonic conquest", as the Times described it. Although he later collaborated with Vaclav Havel to adapt a novel about the 1938 Munich Agreement that enabled the Nazis to claim control of Czechoslovakia's Sudentenland, the project failed to materialise.

He is survived by Martina, his third wife, and by two sets of twin sons.

British director-writer Edgar Wright ("Baby Driver") said Forman had left "a tremendous filmography that documented the rebel heart and human spirit". The filmmaker also wrote a biography in 1994 with Jan Novak, titled Turnaround: A Memoir.

Fellow filmmakers and fans alike have taken to Twitter to share their admiration of Forman.
