One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Sunday, August 25, 2019

The setting of this dramatic comedy is an Oregon mental institution in the 1950’s. Randal McMurphy is a charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in a mental institution rather than in a prison. He makes his entrance into the psychiatric hospital and tension ensues. Nurse Ratched is a former military nurse who dominates the patients maliciously with her authoritarian rule using emasculating tactics to strip the men of their freedom. McMurphy sees that Nurse Ratched’s control over the men is not helping them get better, but keeping them in a low emotional state. This is a time where shock treatment and lobotomies were acceptable forms of 'curing patients'. The characters are a direct product of the Novelists’ time working the graveyard shift as an orderly at a mental health facility. The 1975 film won 5 Oscars including Jack Nicholson for Best Actor
