Milos Forman is one of my favorite Directors. Check out this great interview with him.
He has made some wonderful films, here is a link to his imdb page. (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001232/?ref_=nv_sr_1)
Among his films are One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus, Ragtime, Hair. This guy is amazing.
Whether you want to make films or just enjoy films check out Forman’s work.
