    One of the best and most unique films ever made. The cast is perfect, the performances out of this world, the direction is brilliant, and the choise of location is crucial for the total to be so outstanding. A stroke of genius, but also luck. After failing with it as a stage play, Kirk Douglas tried to get a film version financed, and he also wanted to cast himself as McMurphy, but luckily Milos Forman didn't get the manuscript in the mail due to Czech censorship, so it stranded. Finally Kirk handed it over to his son, Michael, who did everything right and further got in touch with Forman again. There's so much more to it, but the rest is film history.

    One of the few movies in modern history that capture the true essence of the novel it is taken from. The story of Randle Patrick McMurphy's failed attempt to circumvent the criminal justice system through the safety of a mental institution is a fantastic film. It was not only the perfect vehicle for Jack Nicholson to shine but also the entire supporting cast, including Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, and, of course, Louise Fletcher. A great look at mental illness, cruelty, and the marginalized members of our society. Props to Michael Douglas for fighting so hard for the rights to Kesey's novel, and for for producing Hollywood history.

    Powerful, dramatic, and darkly comedic. An enthralling film about mental illness, relationships and the human spirit. Powerhouse acting performances across the board. A must watch.
