One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975)

Ever want to see Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVitto, Michael Berryman, Christopher Lloyed, Brad Dourif and a Ernest Bourgnine look alike all playing a bunch of nuts locked up in a loony ward? Then One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is for you. There is really not much that you can say about a movie like this, that hasn't been said before but it really is one of the best films ever made. Every character is extremely deep and there isn't anything one dimensional about this film. Every time I see it I like it a little bit more. Cuckoo's nest is a emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. Although the movie is usually remembered as being very sad, I prefer to call it dramatic. One minute you will be laughing and the next you can be wishing death upon who I consider to be the most hated character in 70's cinema, Nurse Ratched (louise Fletcher).  Cuckoo's Nest also allows plenty of room for personal perception on people in general. Who is crazy? Is it those who don't quite fit in with the rest of society? Is it someone who uses their own sense of moral or is it those who do everything by the book? Join the loonies and watch One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Its always good!
