Amadeus

1984

Milos Forman
Director
Orion Pictures
US Distributor

Perfect fusion of film and music in this superb adaptation of Peter Shaffer's play. Rivalry between the obnoxious and childish Mozart and his nemesis Salieri is beautifully played out. Watch the requiem mass composition scene and see how film should be. 8 well-deserved Oscars.
