One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ★★★★★

Well I'll. be damned.

Isn't this just utterly fantastic?

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a terrific piece of film making. It's thoughtful, poignant, funny, and uplifting. A Best Picture winner that 100% deserves the accolade of Best Picture. And not only of 1975.

The film just wouldn't work without its incredible cast and performances. As good as Jack Nicholson is in this, and he is phenomenal, it's the great performances of the ensemble cast that really make the movie work. But it's Nicholson who sells the movie, and makes the movie. He has never been better.

This is one of only 3 films to have won all of the big four Oscar category's, and boy does it deserve it.
