One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ★★★★½

I remember at the age of 12 a lot of friends told me Jack Nicholson is one of the greatest actors ever.

At the time I only saw him in Anger Management so I assumed my friends had fucking terrible taste in actors. Sandler was funnier in Anger Management, my friends don't understand real talent like Tobey Maguire in Spiderman.

This year is the first time I've seen The Departed and One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest and Nicholson is incredible in both these films. I think he is fantastic at playing crazy yet rootable characters, in Cuckoos Nest he is sympathetic and electric during every scene he is in.

If my friends from grade five read this, I apologize for judging you guys for liking the Anger Management guy, he is pretty good.
