ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (1975)




Director:
Milos Forman

Writer:
Lawence Hauben
Bo Goldman

Starring:
Jack Nicholson
Louise Fletcher
Michael Barryman and others

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is a well made movie.  The script is not the best but it is definitely good (Lawence Hauben and Bo Goldman won an Oscar for this but I am not the scripts biggest fan). The movie holds its ground due to the stunning chemistry between Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. The powerful ending is also a plus point. But the reason I enjoyed this movie for the most part of its running time was because of the performances. Jack Nicholson is terrific as McMurphy. The supporting cast really lend a helping hand in making this movie an engrossing affair. This movie is definitely worthy of your time even though the writing could have been tighter.
