The Weekend Desk Report

"Milos Forman, a filmmaker who challenged Hollywood with his subversive touch, and twice directed movies that won the Oscar for best picture, died on Friday. He was 86," the New York Times reports.

"Mr. Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - a tragicomic story of revolt and repression in a mental institution - won five Oscars, including those for best director and best picture.

"The film put Mr. Forman in the front rank of those who struggled to make big, commercial films with countercultural sensibilities. His sympathy for the odd man out was always apparent."

McMurphy: But I tried, didn't I? Goddamnit, at least I did that.

Of course, the movie was adapted from Ken Kesey's novel.

"Set in an Oregon psychiatric hospital, the narrative serves as a study of the institutional processes and the human mind as well as a critique of behaviorism and a celebration of humanistic principles," Wikipedia notes.
