Shortly before the 1968 Soviet-led occupation of Czechoslovakia, which put an end to a liberal period known as the Prague Spring, Forman moved to the United States via France.
"Milos Forman has left us".
In 1975, he rose to fame when he directed Hollywood blockbuster "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", an adaptation from a Ken Kesey novel.
The film, which starred Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher, won five Oscars, including best picture and best director and went on to become the second film in history to win the top five Academy Award categories. His best known works tell someone else's story, from adaptations of Hair (a Broadway music) and Amadeus (a stage play) to biopics about Hustler founder Larry Flynt (The People vs. Larry Flynt) and comedian Andy Kaufman (Man on the Moon). "A filmmaker, artist, and champion of artists' rights".
Fellow filmmakers and fans alike have taken to Twitter to share their admiration of Forman.
Milos Forman, one of the most acclaimed directors of the past 50 years, died Friday at 86. It was nominated for the best foreign language film Oscar, as was the follow up, The Fireman's Ball - a brilliantly scabrous account of a chaotic official social event that again incurred the wrath of the Communist authorities.
Hunting for locations, Forman realized Prague was the only European capital that had changed little since Mozart's time, but returning there initially filled him with dread.
"I explained I wanted to make the film because to me it was not just literature but real life, the life I lived in Czechoslovakia from my birth in 1932 until 1968".
"Amadeus" won eight Academy Awards, including for best picture and for Forman as best director. His first feature film came in 1964 with "Black Peter", which established him as part of the rising New Wave Movement in Czech.
Jim Carrey applied his method acting principle to the extreme, and won a Golden Globe for his efforts, in this daring portrayal of reckless and legendary comedian Andy Kaufman, who worked through the NY comedy clubs and onto prime time TV.
He was father to two sets of twin boys, with his second and third wives.
