You’d have to be crazy not to like One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. It’s one of those “out of the box” Best Picture winners. It’s one of only three movies to ever win the Big Five which is Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay. So what makes the movie so special you may ask. Well One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest is set in a mental hospital and centers on a man who chooses to go there instead of prison. The only problem is the atmosphere which he decides to liven up. The most boasts some incredible performances from Jack Nicholson and Brad Dourif. But especially Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched. Who gives a chillingly evil performance as one of cinemas most unlikable characters. At its heart One Flew Over Cuckoos Nest is a remarkable movie about the human spirit.
