    Not a bad review at all! I really enjoy your writing!

  2. Brilliant write-up of a wonderful film. Nicholson is incredible here and the Director and creative team deserve all the plaudits. The wonderfully named Nurse Ratched (Fletcher) is one of the most evil human monsters in cinema history in my view. The ensemble cast are so memorable too.

    (Just an FYI: the wonderful Danny DeVito had actually won an Emmy for his role in late 70s/early 80s sitcom ‘Taxi’; which also starred Christopher Lloyd.)

  3. One of the great classic films for sure! I like how you mentioned how McMurphy represents 1970s counterculture, and that Ratched represents its suppression. I never thought of their roles as being that representative before. I also recently wrote a post on the film with a bit of a different angle if you wish to read!! https://charsmoviereviews.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/one-flew-over-the-cuckoos-nest-1975/

  4. I love this movie! The final scene was just…wow it can’t really be described.
