One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ★★★★★

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Now, this film is cinema at its greatest hour. This film was such a cultural phenomenon and it was truly a staple for my film education, in that it was a classic film and a devastating drama film with comedic touches of brilliance. But this film goes further than that, it probes the limits of our mental and metaphysical experience in life. So far into the mysticism of the 20th Century cultural aesthetic and social commentary. Each character here is a study of diverse human personas, but ultimately, everybody wants to have a good time, even the most mentally ill patients at the ward. I can't help but be also fascinated by the male doctor who first met with Jack Nicholson to be evaluated, and in a sort of mysterious metaphysical and scientific brilliance immediately concluded that Jack infact was not crazy. But the character who steals the show is Chief. He's the ultimate grander conclusion of this psychological universe concocted by Milos Forman. In the end, you just want to break free. 5 Out Of 5.
