1975 ***** 133 mins.
As far back as I can remember, this has been one of my all-time favorite films. Jack Nicholson gives an unforgettable performance as Randle Patrick McMurphy, a troublemaker who has faked insanity to be admitted into a mental institution, rather than go to jail. Once in the asylum, he begins to work his magic on his fellow inmates, resulting in levels of fun and mayhem they have never seen before. Featuring an equally powerful performance by Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a film that is not to be missed.
