MILOŠ FORMAN 90

Friday, September 9 - Thursday, September 22, 2022

16-FILM RETROSPECTIVE COMMEMORATING 90th ANNIVERSARY OF DIRECTOR’S BIRTH

“The divine inspiration of madness – it’s ambiguity, it’s creativity, its higher sanity, and the cover and legitimacy it gives to protest against oppression and bullies of all stripes – these were the ideas which energized Miloš Forman in his remarkable work... He was the Czech émigré who brought the spirit of the anti-Soviet rebellion to Hollywood and made its sly comic strategies and humanist passion flower in dozens of different ways.” 
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
 
“Even from his native Czechoslovakia, Forman’s impact was substantial: his freewheeling, semi-improvised approach anticipated the work of Robert Altman and Ken Loach by several years, as did his lifelong interest in human foibles.” 
– Michael Brooks, Sight & Sound

“As a director, Forman could present hedonism and abandon and rebellion and madness without ever losing sight of the big picture — conveying both the boisterousness and the fear, the liberation and the unpredictability of a world imagined without rules.”  
– Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice
