What can i say more about this masterpiece i think that all i can say it was already been said. The only thing i want to remember is that sometimes is better to watch again and again some old movies like this one to remember what cinema is. During these last years is becoming a fact that the budget is the main ingredient you need to make a great movie. I think that this movie is a clear example that it isn't the truth in fact Forman disposed a little budget making one of the greatest movie of all times.The only ingredient that is essential is the talent and the will to give great emotions with your movie.Too many people are forgetting these two things thinking too much at the money.This is why i think that "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" is a hope for everyone who wants to make movies.
I don't even remember the first time i saw this movie. I know that i have it on DVD and i wrote a pretty long paper on it in my English class this year. I truly believe that this lie a few other movies (Godfatehr, Citizen Kane etc) is a cinematic masterpiece. The movie is based on the book. We see Jack Nicholson as the main character, a criminal who is trying to get light work by pretending to be insane. It is a great movie and has something for everyone in it. there is humor, drama, some action. The movie is fabulous. It won a bunch of Grammys the year it came out 1975-76. Definitely check it out if you have yet to see it. For those interested in a DVD buy their is a great box set out. I love this movie ten out of ten
This film is, in a word, amazing. The acting is superior. The direction outstanding. Michael Douglas should be very proud of this early accomplishment. The characters we meet throughout the film are very memorable, some likable, some psychotic. The film has a such a realistic style, you could be fooled into thinking you are watching a documentary. This is one of the most unforgettable films of the past years- don't miss it! For anyone who has not had the opportunity to view this film please do not hesitate. I have given this film a perfect "10" rating and I will not do that often. Very few movies deserve that rating but this one is definitely one of them.
One of the best films ever made, as I can just watch it again and again
and never get board of watching it. It goes to show how good the film
was, that almost every main actor in this film made a success in acting
after taking role in this movie. Jack Nicholson was truly made for the
part as RP McMurphy, as nobody else could have played the part more
convincing and dramatic as he did. To perform a film set in a mental
Institution takes an incredible amount of patience from both the
directors/actors to learn how to act mental, as Danny Devito(Martini)
and Christopher Lloyd(Taber) were especially remarkable at this, as
they knew how to put on such convincing mental facial reactions
(ie.when C.Lloyd was screaming/laughing when Will Sampson(The Chief)
escaped from the mental Institution and when D.Devito(Martini) was
playing Monopoly with Harding as he put his hotel piece on the board.
This film in all aspects was funny, witty, heartfelt, dramatic and quite realistic, as all the way through the film you are either angry, laughing, crying, at something or other, that is going on in the film, whether its being angry with Nurse Ratchett(Louise Fletcher)over her legalism, or crying when Billy(Brad Dourif) harms himself at the end of the film or even laughing at the way RP McMurphy was acting, when he was listening/ observing Mr.Hardings and Mr.Tabers argument during Nurse Ratchetts therapy group. There is not a moment in this film, for which ones emotions aren't triggered, as this film is 'all go' and never drags-on. If you haven't seen this film and would like to, please watch it, for I can guarantee you that you won't be disappointed. PS Memorable/Favourite quote - I don't have anymore questions, do you have any questions Mr. McMurphy "Where do you suppose she lives"
One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest is probably, along with Cool Hand Luke, one of the greatest films of all time. Jack was at his very best which, amazingly, is all the time. I think that Nurse Ratchett is the most hated character that I can recall. She was evil in a way that was familiar to many of us. I believe that, of movies that were made from books, Cuckoos Nest is the most faithfully reproduced. I've seen this movie many times and I always enjoy all the wonderful performances. Also notable are the careers that were launched with Cuckoos Nest. The almost unrecognizable Danny DeVito as Martini. The frenetic Chris Lloyd fitting so neatly into the band of lunatics. Will Sampson was inspiring as Chief Bromden. Cuckoos Nest, overall, coaxes such a wide range of emotions, from out and out hilarity to tear-jerking sadness, that it is nearly impossible to classify. Suffice it to say that One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest is one of the greats!
"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" may be read as a scathing satire,
reminiscent of Orwell's "1984", as both depict a society that controls
its members through enforcing and internalizing conformity. The
alienating consequences for individuals in such a society are rendered
brilliantly by the director, as Jack Nicholson's character fights to
keep his individuality.
This film also reminds me of Gary Walkow's 1995 picture "Notes from Underground" (starring Henry Czerny and Sheryl Lee). Walkow's protagonist, like that of "Cuckoo's Nest" finds himself to be the only sane human being as far as the eye can see--his awareness of his condition renders him bitter and terrified. Both films are brilliant illustrations of alienation fostered by a society that denies individuality at the expense of a sense of "belonging" to a group.
One flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is the best movie of all time. Jack Nicholson is amazing in this movie and the Godfather isnt even close to this movie. Everyone that I have showed this movie to has loved it and said it was the best movie they ever saw. Putting Lord of the Rings infront of it should be a sin. This is the best movie I have ever seen.
I only saw this film last night, and I have to say that this is one of
best films I have ever seen. From Beginning to end this film made me
and really touched me inside. Jack Nicholson's performance in this film
better then any other film he has starred in ( including 'The Shining').
This film also won five academy awards, including: Best Actor ( Nicholson ), best actress ( Louise Fletcher ), Best picture, Best Director ( Milos Foreman ), and best adapted Screenplay.
This film is so good that I have placed it in my top three favourite films, and I recommend everyone should watch this superb Drama.
Overall ***** out of *****
You can't honestly tell me that any one of the Lord Of Rings movies is better than Cuckoo's Nest! The fact that One Flew.. dropped to #12 because of the entry of LOTR The Return of the King, is outrageous! LOTR is nothing but overblown CGI! It doesn't reflect anything at all but fantasy! Give me a break! It goes to show you that there are more geeks and nerds on this planet than people with common sens

What a beautiful movie. The acting was wonderful everything was wonderful. I always agreed with Nicholson's character he was right about everything. I also liked the plot outline...that the nurse is more dangerous than the patients. Nurse Ratched was probably trying to do the best of the patients, but she was only making it worse. This is one of my favorite movies. It was very deep and moving. SPOILER AHEAD: I didn't understand why Chief killed McMurphy, but then I realized that he didn't want McMurphy to suffer any longer and when Chief left the ward happily I felt happy also. **** out of ****
