World-famous Czech director and rabbit aficionado Milos Forman comes to the AFI Silver tomorrow night to speak after the screening of his 1975 film, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Forman isn’t quite the force he was back in the ’60s, when he helped spearhead the Czech New Wave with films like The Firemen’s Ball and The Lives of a Blonde; he’s directed only two movies in the past ten years, one of ’em has the misfortune of being Man on the Moon, and his last acting gig was in Edward Norton‘s worst movie. But none of that takes a thing away from Cuckoo’s Nest, Nicholson’s last great role before a five-year rut that included infamous clunkers like The Missouri Breaks and Goin’ South.
