Plot – Spoilers:
Randle McMurphy is sent from a work-farm to a mental institution to be evaluated for looniness. The doctors believe he’s been faking crazy, to be let off the backbreaking work at the farm. Randle himself cockily thinks the institute is an entertaining place to see out his prison sentence among all the crazies, who seem a nice source of voyeuristic fun.

A few things however get in Randle’s way. Nurse Ratched who runs the place seems to be a sadist who enjoys controlling the patients. This triggers Randle who has already begun to feel sympathy and empathy for the inmates. But soon a terrifying reality dawns on Randle – he actually isn’t there to complete his sentence. Rather, he is there for the system to decide whether he can ever be a free man again.

One of the greatest films ever made, with near-perfect everything, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a tragic illustration of getting broken.

Brilliant novel. Brilliant interpretation. Cannot imagine any other actor nailing this role as well as Jack Nicholson. A terrifying indictment of the American mental health system of the time. “Frances” (with Jessica Lange) is another example. Thanks so much for including this classic!

An absolutely amazing film! A true landmark in cinema which was in direct competition with Taxi Drive for the 1976 awards. One Flew took the Big 5 Oscars with, 15 nominations, and another 32 various awards, beating out Taxi Driver’s 4 Oscar nomination and 21 other awards.

Talk about stiff competition! They don’t make movies of this caliber anymore.

However, Silence of the Lambs swept the Big 5 Oscars in 1992, one of only 3 pictures to ever do so, one of which was…… One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest!!

Silence has an astounding 63 total wins and another 51 nomination!!

This movie made me think of myself … I had the opportunity to go to an insane asylum for 1 month because my parents thought I was crazy. With the origin of drug use All the time I was in the hospital. I know myself that I’m not crazy. I have never taken any medication prescribed by my doctor. I used to break the drug by myself. And correct the state of mind by reading books The days have passed. Now, I am a graduate of my master’s degree and I am a teacher at elementary school. P.S. Neither my parents nor the medical team truly understand us. Equal to ourselves !!

Awesome film! Jack Nicholson is a great actor and so versatile. Loved him in ” The Shining ”, he was scary as fuck in it and ” The Last Detail ” where he was funny as fuck in that. Agree its not effed up as far as gore goes, but its sad, funny and hilarious and well acted. I will rewatch this again.

Hello, I’m posting this on another movie since I can’t seem to post a comment on the movie I’m asking about itself. I hope this comment don’t get taken down before I got my answer. Can someone tell me who the two men are at the 34:00-ish mark of Baise-moi? I really would like to know more about their filmographies. Thank you.

I thought this movie is up there as the “All-time classic movies”. Next to – Chinatown (also starred Jack Nicholson)

This movie is an absolute sausage fest! I wanted to fap to big titties and asses but only got retarded men mumbling to themselves! The only good parts is seeing Candy so that I can have something to beat my dick to, but would NOT watch this pile of elephant shit again.

An absolute amazing film. Why is a movie of this caliber posted here on EffedUpMovies,com? Just to piss-off you annoying, self-important uber-zoom-dweebs. You’re fat, ugly and dumb as all fuck. Go suck a tailpipe like it’s Daddy cock. We hate you.

The opening shot of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST is a bleak glance at an Oregon morning. Stirring, haunting music plays gracefully on the soundtrack and a car approaches. Inside the car is one of film history’s most remarkable characters. “Randle McMurphy” is about to bring hope, humor, and a glimmer of reality to some disturbed people in a mental hospital. Jack Nicholson as “McMurphy”, is something of a paradox. Is this guy crazy or is he really the lazy, conniving criminal most believe him to be? That is the magical mystery and start to a journey into mental illness and the effect this man will have on some truly messed up men. Milos Forman directs this all-time classic, which swept the Oscars deservedly, and holds up so well 25 years later. It is a simplistic film about small people living in their own small worlds. Manic moments are mixed with poignant acting all leading to an astounding climax. Not before or since CUCKOO’S NEST has a collection of different characters had such an impact on me. You could write a book report about each of the patients in the ward. The two most important people here are, of course, Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. Nicholson has his greatest moments in this picture. One brilliant scene has him doing an imaginary play-by-play commentary of the 1963 World Series to the group, who are not allowed to watch the game on TV. It is a poetic sequence and Nicholson goes… Read more »
