One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest Will Be Re Released For Jack Nicholson's 80th Birthday

Why are they treated so roughly and constantly humiliated? Why are they subject to unnecessary repressive rules? Why can’t they/he watch baseball on television?

Nurse Ratched is implacable, authoritarian and unshiftable in her white uniform. Her hairstyle, a masterpiece of severity.

It’s a classic 1960s/70s struggle between freedom and authority as well as an attack on the psychiatric regime of the time with electric shock therapy regarded by institutions as a useful treatment and by critics as the ultimate evil.

One of only three films that have won all five major Oscars – actor, actress, director, best screenplay, best picture – it is utterly compelling. Nicholson’s presence, whether he’s observing, talking, arguing or going wild is always riveting.
