In 1984, director Milos Foreman brought a nearly all-American crew back to his hometown of Soviet-occupied Prague to film an adaptaion of the wildly successful Broadway play Amadeus. Telling the story of the envious Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) as he plots to kill the object of his obsession, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce), the film dives deep into rich themes of obsession, mediocrity and the nature of producing art. But does the film deserve it's Best Picture Oscar or should it have been lost in time? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster find out.
