The greatest movie ever made. An analysis of that time, yes, but it endures forever. Jack Nicholson portrays R. P. McMurphy, a man who would seem to be a rebel, but becomes a savior, to perfection. This is a tale of a good man, a man who has more power on the inside than his demonstrative outside. The greatest story ever told.

One of the defining moments of the 1970s. The rewatchability factor on this movie is at an all time high. Jack Nicholson's greatest performance and one of the best climaxes in film history.

The second time I watched it, it became more deeply engraved in my mind. It is a disturbing classic, with an odd sense of a re-watch ability factor.

Watched it for the first time. I was blown away by everybody's performances. It's my favorite role of Jack Nicholson's by FAR! Definitely, one for the books. Is it strange that the ending made me cry? :P

A tragic tale of tackled heroism amidst the meek and helpless. Nurse ratchet is truly one of the greatest villains in movie history. You feel astounding resentment during the entirety of the film and when Billy dies, you end up wanting the same as MacMurphy. For her to be rid of. Subjectively, she is the best villain I've seen as I haven't rooted against a film character in all my life. The entire cast is brilliant and is what carries the film, the colourful blend of various personalities and also the incredibly dramatic moments which always leave you stunned. This is one of the best films I've seen and I advise anybody who is interested in film to see this magnificent movie.
