''Is that crazy enough for ya'? Want me to take a shit on the floor?''

Upon arrival at a mental institution, a brash rebel rallies the patients together to take on the oppressive Nurse Ratched, a woman more a dictator than a nurse.

Jack Nicholson: R.P. McMurphy

Until today, I had never seen this film, despite its fame as a classic. I must say I am surprised that I enjoyed it so much.

This, by far, is in my opinion, Nicholson’s best performance. When you have a great cast and a wonderful director, it’s hard to go wrong! A definite must see.

My favorite Jack Nicholson film.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest tops off a list of movies wherein my favorite top three are all on this list specifically because of the performances of the leads in each film. Al Pacino is what made Dog Day Afternoon bark; the shark in Jaws bought the oversized man-eating sea predator to life; and finally, in the number one spot, it was Jack Nicholson's performance that ... read more

"29.6. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Ei ollut Nicholson enää palikka, kun käenpesän yli lensi. Mainiota, monipuolista henkilökuvaa ja pohdituttavaa ihmisarvoisen kohtelun puimista eri tasoilta. "Watching this again, I am less inclined to regard Nurse Ratched as a simple villain, despite her vindictive humiliation of poor, shy Billy, and more like a professional who refuses to be bullied by a bunch of men." T. Peter Bradshaw Täsmälleen saman havainnon koin katsellessani, lainaus siis tuli va"

“(OK) Great story, subversion from the last of prisons, the undefined mental hospital, where people is so 'worked on' that they destroy their will to be free, haunting them with their complexes as Brad Dourif or with lobotomy as Nicholson...” read more

So much good about this movie...

“What an amazing movie! I cannot begin to describe how good One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is, the whole film has the word classic written all over it. The production values are of top notch quality, and Jack Nitzsche's music is excellent. The film also has a brilliant script, superb direction from Milos Forman(who also directed one of my other favourite movies Amadeus) and a compelling story. The pace is spot on, and there are many memorable scenes especially the very poignant yet harrowing ending. The characters all add a lot to the film, especially Nurse Ratched who is oppressive and terrifying. The cast are all terrific, Jack Nicholson is superb in one of his best roles and Louise Fletcher is just unforgettable as Nurse Ratched. Among the supporting cast are Danny DeVito, Christopher L” read more

“Felon Randle McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) gets sentenced to a term at a mental asylum. He is not really insane but pleaded insane to avoid a harsher sentence. Once inside he discovers that it is no picnic, with the patients being ruled with an iron fist by oppressive head nurse Nurse Ratched. The naturally free-spirited, rebellious and extroverted McMurphy livens up the place, making confrontation with Ratched inevitable.

Great, original movie. Decent dramatic plot with some great humorous detours. Maybe a bit too linear and basic to make it brilliant, but very entertaining nevertheless.

Won the 1976 Best Picture Oscar. Also won Best Director (for Milos Forman), Best Leading Actor (Jack Nicholson), Best Leading Actress (Louise Fletcher) and Adapted Screenplay (Lawrence Hau” read more

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Well, after all these years, I actually have some mixed feelings about the damned thing. I mean, on one hand, it was and has always been a massive critical success and it is considered as one of the best movies ever made. On the other hand, the more I think about it, the more I believe that this movie gave a rather romantic view of the life in a psychiatric hospital. Indeed,"

"“What’s interesting about Louise’s work is how she keeps her own rhythm, which is very hard to do when the rest of the room – and Jack especially – is so kinetic. She never allows herself to step outside of her rhythm and join his rhythm. It makes it very, very eerie.” - Sally Field “This is one of those few movies that, I think, works on every level…. Jack Nicholson allows the other actors to have their moments and trusts his own talent get lost or overshadowed. The richness o"
