In one of the most memorable indictments of mental institutions, and a subtle examination of male anger, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (based on the novel by Ken Kesey) presents a biting, and ultimately tragic, satire. R.P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson, in a role it would seem he was born to play), a misbehaving con who shirks authority, finds himself in an asylum after faking insanity to get out of work detail in prison. Once in, the vivacious troublemaker finds out he's in a worse kind of prison--one presided over by the repressed, terrifyingly quiet Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), whose taught set of rules and regulations are meant to suppress patients' psychotic outbursts, and their spirits. It's not long before McMurphy is reaching out to his new inmates, trying desperately to bring life to an otherwise dead atmosphere. He becomes the organizer of card games, tries to teach a huge Cree Indian, Chief Bromden (Will Sampson), to shoot baskets, and, when his efforts to allow the patients to see the World Series are thwarted, he mimics the game for his new friends. To Ratched, however, Nicholson's free spirit is as dangerous as a schizophrenic impulse.

A disturbing, witty, and electrifying drama, and directed by Milos Forman (AMADEUS, THE PEOPLE VS LARRY FLYNT), ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST is brilliantly acted by an ensemble that includes several future stars such as Christopher Lloyd and Danny DeVito. The film is also one of only three filmsalong with IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBSthat won all five of the top Oscars; Best Actor (Nicholson), Best Actress (Fletcher), Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Best movie ever made featuring one of the best performances by the finest actor of any generation!

Definitely - not sure why people are voting cold?! It's the cheapest anywhere and for one of the finest films ever created. Some brilliant performance by lots of actors who were acting in their first film - such as Danny Devito and Doc from Back to the Future!

One of the greatest films ever. Producer Michael Douglas refused his dad Kirk the lead in favour of Jack, heh heh. In the review it suggests 'a subtle examination of male anger' which is way off the mark - I'd say it is more an examination of various forms of restraint and conformity. And, oddly enough, portraying a chillingly cool manifestation of suppressed rage is Nurse Ratched, the female nemesis to Jack's character.

Absolutely. I've worked with a few Nurse Ratcheds in my time!

This is a really good film and well worth the price.

Does bluray have any advantages over DVD for old films? I would think that DVD is more than a match than the quality of the film used to record an old film. Are they 'super remastering stuff' for bluray?

Pretty much any movie ever made on 35mm print would benefit from HD as the relative resolution of film is much higher than current HD discs.

Only if you have a screen larger than 42" or so. Otherwise the image will only marginally noticable in difference against an uprated dvd. Personally no film should be more than 6 quid bluray or not. New I can understand, they''ll bump the price, but rereleases shouldn't cost more than DVD. Production cost difference is pennies.

Neutral. Excellent film.

Wouldn't get this (or any other old films) on Blu Ray. From review :

"This first-ever Blu-ray version is certainly the best I've ever seen the film look, though I still can't say this is really the kind of material that lends itself to high-def. "

Better off getting the DVD for a lot less

Its 9.99 at HMV but then 5% quidco cashback, which makes it cheaper by nearly 50p.
