The book and the movie go well together. The movie does adequate justice to the book, and in fact brings it to life. with the movie, reading the book also gives more insight.

OUTSTANDING!!!! Every inch of this film is great. Jack Nicholson gives his best perfomence outside of The Last Detail.

Real and mythical at the same time! Seemed fantastical since it was largely black and white but the acting drew you in so much it seemed real and current!

This is, without doubt, one of the greatest movies ever produced. Milos Forman won best director for his magnificent work on the adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel by the same name. But this movie is so much more than that. The acting was flawless - considering the roles, that is not an easy feat. In the beginning we meet Randle P.

If I recall correctly, Kirk Douglas tried for many years to produce a film based on Ken Kesey's novel.

A disturbing, witty, and electrifying drama, the film won the 1975 Academy Award for Best Picture. R.P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), a misbehaved con who shirks authority, finds himself in an asylum after faking insanity to get out of work detail in prison. The vivacious troublemaker soon finds himself in a worse kind of prison--one presided over by the repressed, terrifyingly quiet Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), whose set of rules and regulations are meant to suppress patients' psychotic outbursts, and their spirits. It's not long before McMurphy is reaching out to his new inmates, trying desperately to bring life to an otherwise dead atmosphere. To Ratched, however, Nicholson's free spirit is as dangerous as a schizophrenic impulse. ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST is brilliantly acted by an ensembl...
