A weird movie indeed

Considered one of the best movies ever made, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a different kind of film. Centered around a man that was sent to a mental asylum, Jack Nicholson provides this oscar-winning performance that was well deserved. Although not just him, but all of the patients around him as well as Louise Fletcher played convincing and enthralling roles. Each of the characters are not only interesting, but there is some decent humor to this movie. However, I only felt this way for the first half. Once the second half comes around, it turned from interesting to weird. While McMurphy tries to bring some life and excitement to the place throughout the movie, there was a point where not only did they do this for too long, but it lead to absolutely nowhere until the very end of the movie. But with Jack Nicholson's great performance and an equally great first half, it would be worth watching this movie just for that alone.
