One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ★★★★½

Way more than an allegoric tale trapped inside its allusions to society, this is a deeply humane story treated and executed with palpable care by everyone involved. Nicholson is obviously phenomenal, but the ensemble cast add to the movie as much as he does. It's evident that the actors are pretty much engulfed by their roles, however they rarely go over-the-top despite having an obvious excuse to do so. There's a little rushing in the third act, but that ending is just magnificent.
