The story is about a man who may not really be insane is admitted to an institution. He plays tricks on the nurse and rounds up the other trouble patients for a healthy dose of fun. Jack Nicholson in this film was brilliant and the all film is crazy but so full of joy until the end comes and if you have seen the film you know what I mean.

Jack Nicholson was amazing! This movie is very good. It has light humor and a dramatic ending. I really liked it. I don't know what else to say except it was good. I'd recommend

In a fairly faithful adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel, Jack Nicholson leads the charge for a discovery of self within a stringent mental institution The film is wonderfully life affirming, while also still clinging to the tragic air of the novel. Nicholson's persona finds the right line between totally unhinged and courageous and the film's heart lies with his performance.

Call me crazy for not loving this film...

Now, I'll admit, it's been a long while since of I've read Ken Kesey's book, but I remember thinking that it was just OK. And, I have to say the same for the film, it just moves really slow. The last half-hour picks up the pace, but, it still doesn't make up for the first 100 minutes. And, there was no talk about the "machine." I'm not saying that it was needed, but it was a huge part of the book.

Now, for the awards, because I feel that this movie has to be examined from an Academy Awards standpoint because it is one of only three films to win the "big five" Oscars along with It Happened One Night (1934) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991).

First off, let's analyze Best Picture, I've seen 4 of the 5, I have not seen Barry Lyndon, but I don't necessarily have a problem with this ...

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest review

The year 1963 in Oregon, Randle Patrick McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) was transferred to a mental institution because of having fights, statutory rape and laziness. The cold blooded Nurse Mildred Ratched (Louise Fletcher) heads the institution that performs daily therapy sessions and medications for the patients. McMurphy befriends Charlie Cheswick (Sydney Lassick), a man who has childlike qualities in terms of needing security and temper; Martini (Danny DeVito), who is delusional; Dale Harding (William Redfield), an intellect who overanalyzes too much and thinks his wife is cheating on him; Taber (Christopher Lloyd), a cantankerous and profane individual who enjoys picking on Harding; Billy Bibbit (Brad Dourif) who stutters and has fears about letting his mother down, and "Chief" Bromden ...

Jack Nicholson at his best!

Is it any wonder that this film won Jack Nicholson his first Oscar? What a performance, I couldn't rave about it enough. The main thing I loved about this movie was how it was actually filmed in a mental institution, with actual mental patients. I thought this really reflected on the actors' performances, and gave it that extra element of realism. Nicholson's McMurphy is quite possibly one of the most interesting characters I've ever watched in a film. He has wit, charisma and no doubt charm but you can also sense real emotion there. He's not afraid to speak his mind and you can almost sense his desperation to be liked by his fellow patients. He's somewhat a force of nature and he likes to think he's being influential to the others. Louise Fletcher was a fantastic contrast to Jack, playin...
