Format: Blu-ray
More frightening than any horror movie, and more disturbingly tragic than any tearjerker, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest remains a great film classic of any time. Shot mainly in a mental institution, and not remembered for pretty scenery, the blu-ray quality is nonetheless wonderful. This film has never looked so good. In terms of extras, there are additional scenes, commentary, 45min. making-of, and the original trailer. I think the only new or exclusive to blu-ray item, may be the 35 page in-case booklet of photos and notes. I'm happiest however, just to have this great quality presentation of a very deserving film.

Format: Blu-ray
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)
Drama, 133 minutes
Directed by Milos Forman
Starring Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, Will Sampson, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd and Brad Dourif

Jack Nicholson is one of my favorite actors and he can pull off anything from serious drama, to horror, or even comedy. I loved his portrayal of Melvin Udall in As Good as It Gets, but I think R. P. McMurphy is my favorite Nicholson character.

McMurphy is placed in a mental institution for evaluation, but he's really just trying to avoid prison and hard work. We know that he's faking it the whole time. His fellow patients are a weird mixture of oddballs. Some are dangerous, others merely insecure. McMurphy discovers that most of the patients are there on a voluntary basis and he observes that they are no crazier than the average person on the street.

There's a great scene when McMurphy arranges a road trip of sorts and we see how some of the others function when they are in the real world. It does raise an interesting point about mental illness. How much is a result of our environment? Can some of the problems be remedied simply by being placed in the right environment?

The characters have plenty of depth and we gradually learn some of their hopes and fears. The best moment in the entire film involves Juicy Fruit, but I won't ruin it for those who haven't seen the film. If you have, you'll know exactly what I mean.

McMurphy is perceived as subversive and potentially dangerous. When Nurse Ratched (Fletcher) refuses to show the World Series on TV, McMurphy whips the other patients into a frenzy by acting out an imaginary game.

The acting talent on display is seriously good.

I liked it. Jack Nicholson was great in this role as was Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched. She played just the kind of officious, authoritarian, bitchy nurse you love to hate.

Milos Forman is a Director's Director. He has created this amazing playpen
for "lunatics". It isn't obvious from the start that Freedom is the theme but every
scene has that as it's base. The most important thing Michael Douglas (Exec Producer)
has ever done in Hollywood was fighting to get this film made. (It swept the Oscars in every
major category. )

I had or originally seen this film when it first came out and enjoyed it. It was recommended to me again recently so I purchased it. I have new found appreciation for the complexity of the story, the characters and the quality of the acting. An amazing film.

This movie is the best movie i have ever seen.I have this movie and they filmed it in a real mental hospital.They had a tuff time finding a actress to play nurse ratched no one wonted to play that character because she was so evil Louise Fletcher did not wont to play this character either but she did and she did a good job. I give her alot of credit for playing this character because Nurse Ratched is cold hearted.

After reading the book numerous times, and seeing the film at least three times, it is a moving and enjoyable piece of modern culture a la Hollywood style. I can't help but clue into the author's own disappointment over the screenplay however. I refer to an interview with Kesey on NPR. The book's POV is that of the Chief's, and we do not get ANY of that in the film. Completely lost. And it is profoundly important to me that Kesey never in his life watched the film. On a personal note, though I love Jack Nicholson, he was part miscast in that his physical stature never equaled the novel's character. The part of the Chief was brilliant.

Format: DVD
This has been buzzing around my ears among my friends and without a doubt; it is one of the best films of all time. Mixing mental health with humor is a tough brand to sell; come to fine out it took several years for this movie to be made. Kirk Douglas had bought the rights hoping to star in it himself, but struggled to find a studio who would produce it; his son Michael eventually did it, but had the foresight to stay off the screen. When you watch it, it's not hard to work out why no-one would touch it - it's subject matter was just too quirky and controversial for Hollywood in the 60s. The film was ideal for representing a burgeoning discontent with society during the post-Vietnam malaise; its audience, like its characters, was feeling enormous dissatisfaction with rules, authority, government and the stupefying way it was treating its people. No wonder that it struck such a chord with cinema-goers.

Many liberties that we take for granted are explored within the narrative of the film: communication (in therapy sessions, where the nurse leads the discussion) freedom (during the 'escape') alcohol (during the party) sex (Billy's turn with the hooker McMurphy imports). The reactions of Nurse Ratched and the orderlies symbolize the reactions of authority when we digress from its designated path; the response of the inmates is to return to the routines and drudgery they entail. The analogy with the restrictive nature of society is glaring.

Enter Randle McMurphy, no respecter of rules or routines, a man who is riotous but also unselfish. Brilliantly played by Jack Nicholson (a masterly piece of casting) McMurphy challenges the established norms and routines of the hospital in pursuit of fun, which irks and then aggravates Nurse Ratched.
