When free-spirited petty crook Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) arrives at the state mental hospital, his contagious sense of disorder jolts the routine. Soon hes on one side of a brewing war; soft spoken, coolly monstrous Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) is on the other. At stake is the fate of every patient on the ward. Milos Forman's electrifying adaptation of Ken Kesey's acclaimed best seller swept all five major 1975 Academy Awards: Best Picture (produced by Saul Zaentz and Michael Douglas), Actor (Nicholson), Actress (Fletcher), Director (Milos Forman) and Adapted Screenplay (Lawrence Hauben and Bo Goldman). Raucous, moving and with a superb cast that includes Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito and Christopher Lloyd in his film debut, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest simply soars.
Mc Murphy has been transferred to a mental health facility to be accessed on his state of mental health pending a trial outcome. It doesn't take him long to start to stir things up within the system his main focus of dislike being centered on Nurse Ratched who will brook no arguments or questions on how things are done on her ward. Mc Murphy, decides that the fellow patients should start living at little and does his best to get the others out and about, breaking every rule in the hospital while at it. In a final confrontation Mc Murphy is finally subdued in the worst possible way. This would have to be Jack Nickolson's best role, with a brilliant supporting cast. Watch out for a very young Danny De Vito. Classic movie!!!!
Such a gripping story about a man sent to a metal institution that isnít actually mental. He forms a great friendship with another man there, who at first seems mental but turns out he isnít. Their friendship grows strong. Jack Nicholson is one of the most humorous actors I have seen, he plays this part extremely well.
