One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ★★★★½

Watching a Jack Nicholson performance is so infectious. Every time I watch him he looks like he’s having the most fun an actor has ever had while playing a role, and it’s encapsulated in little moments like the handshake in Batman, stairway in The Shining, or when he’s asking everyone for one more vote in this one. Anyways it was a great watch, could definitely feel it was adapted from a novel though. Ratched wasn’t as menacing as I expected, although I guess her villainy is more centred in control.
