The Movie: This documentary, part of a series from Winstar Video and the AFI, profiles legendary director Milos Forman. The winner of multiple Academy Awards, Forman has directed such movies as One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Hair, Amadeus, The People vs. Larry Flynt, and Man on the Moon. The documentary interviews various actors that recall working with Forman and relate their experiences. Included are Annette Bening, Jim Carrey, Michael Douglas, and a few others. The video is quite interesting and a must have for any fan of Milos Forman, or any of his movies.

The Picture: These movies I assume were made for the direct-to-video market and are in the video ratio of 1.33:1. The picture isn't really anyting special, but it also doesn't have any noticeable flaws that distract from the movie.

The Sound: The sound is only stereo, which is my major complaint, but other than that, there's no problems with the sound. But being sound, don't expect any special effects when they show clips from Forman's movies, or during any part of this documentary.

The Extras: There's really nothing more than a filmography and a list of awards for Milos Forman, along with a weblink to the Winstar Video website.

Conclusion: This disc is a must have for any fan of Milos Forman as it compiles interviews from many leading actors from his most famous films who give an insight into Milos and his directing style. I found the documentary to be very interesting (quite surprisingly), and entertaining. The price is a little high for a 60 minute documentary, but a good bargain hunter should be able to find it cheap and enjoy a look at this enigmatic director.
