Tom Hutchinson
Radio Times

This film is one of the classic movies of the 1970s, thanks in no small measure to the talents of director Milos Forman.

The movie is both timeless and indicative of its own era, a period of anti-establishment movements.

I enjoyed the picture because it is an action romance, worked out in wonderfully inventive detail and presented with mesmeric immediacy by one of the screen's most resourceful directors.

Nicholson gets to use all the colors on his palette, from quiet, troubled contemplation to the disturbingly truthful, live-wire jesting with which he has become best associated. [Blu-ray]

It's mostly Nicholson that makes the film work, with his fun, but very intelligent, canny turn.

There's a lot here. But with a classic like Cuckoo's Nest, too much is never enough.

A rare screen adaptation of a beloved novel that maintains the emotional and dramatic power of the original while establishing its own distinctive approach to the story...

The genius of the film is that you never feel you're being preached at, but rather being allowed a fly-on-the-wall view of a systematic crushing of humanity.

One Flew over the Cuckoo 's Nest is an earnest attempt to make a serious film. But in the end the movie backs away from both the human reality and the cloudy but potent symbolism that Ken Kesey found in the asylum.

Viewed 30 years after its release, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest remains a very good motion picture, although one that perhaps just misses the pinnacle of greatness where its reputation suggests it resides.

Jack Nicholson stars in an outstanding characterization of Ken Kesey's asylum anti-hero, McMurphy, and Milos Forman's direction of a superbly-cast film is equally meritorious.

The film remains as fresh, shocking, depressing and exhilarating as when it was released.

Emanuel Levy

A terrific adaptation of Ken Kensey's 1962 novel (first done as play) that became timelier in the 1970s, positing a free-spirited hero (the excellent Jack Nicholson) against repressive authoritarianism, embodied by Fletcher's nurse.

Ken Kesey's grim satire of institutionalized authority, bracingly filmed by Milos Forman.

Jack Nicholson plays McMurphy as if he were born to it, and the supporting cast provides fine, detailed performances.

A stirring indictment of how we determine who's sane and who's crazy.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Set in an insane asylum, the film involves the oppression of the individual, a struggle spearheaded by an ebullient Nicholson, turning in a star performance if ever there was one.
