One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ★★★★½

This film was filled with a brilliant cast that performed sensationally, with Jack Nicholson as the lead role delivering sheer perfection to each and every scene creating the atmosphere for the viewer. A phenomenal performance by Nicholson, supported by a terrific ensemble of actors. Milos Foreman created a genuine masterpiece. The correlation and relationship with the characters along with the breathtaking ambiance makes you feel you are experiencing the dealings and events that transpire amongst the institute, your compassion for McMurphy is beautifully juxtaposing to your hatred for Nurse Ratched.

For me to be totally transfixed for every moment shows the meticulous detail that went into each scene. Albeit, some scenes that were almost a fraction disturbing, it was all a part of the monumental experience. The movie quintessentially depicts the extraordinary and almost abnormal occurrences inside an insane institution at that time.
