Characters have flaws, defects, and strengths that simply don't fit. The acting, setting, filming, and atmosphere, however, make up for it. The story, minus the little defects, is also well told and creates immersion and suspense. Then, maybe in some attempt to become more of an action/suspense film, it becomes nearly a constant clich and nonsensical for the last third.The filmmaker has talent as a director, but really needs help as a writer after the initial idea and plot development.

Matt Damon plays beautifully a difficult character, in its simplicity, navet and honest emotions. The "palatial kitsch" becomes natural to the public, like the portrait of a time when gay codes where not explicitly perceived by the average man.
(br) wrote: John Carpenters last really good work in my opinion. This movie is genuinely freaky with some very disturbing images. The plot is really twisted and dark, and there is absolutely no feel good here. The movie involves a popular horror writer, and how is books somewhat become a reality. The central character played by Sam Nell is good here. He gets lost in the writers book and goes on a journey to find out about him when weird stuff starts happening to him. Real good film.
(fr) wrote: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a book with a pretty accurate movie except some key factors that would've made the movie far better and compare to the book even more. The book and movie kind of paste this humorous and yet disturbing view of mental institutions while at the same time saying something about society in general. It does so in an entertaining and attention grabbing way that keeps you reading or watching. The movie had many missing parts from the book that are critical to really understanding what's going on. They removed a lot of Mcmurphy's triumph over Nurse Ratched such as the part where he was in the towel and she lost her cool. This was a huge part in the book because that was when he finally got her to snap, but the movie skipped out on that big critical moment for Mcmurphy and his influence growing on the other patients in the ward. They also skipped out on the part where Mcmurphy "cleaned" the bathrooms and pranked the nurse while doing so then later. They never really showed him start to straighten up after he learned he was committed and instead just brought it up in the meeting and was outraged and broke out. They changed some scenes to be way more dramatic than how there were in the book. When the patients were demanding their cigarettes from the nurse there was a much more dramatic ruckus in the movie than in the book such as Mcmurphy punching the glass and one of the Black boys and him, Chief, and Cheswick to disturbed for shock therapy. The scene where Pete lashed out when he was tired and shoved the short black boy into a wall was watered down into him just standing and saying he's tired and then escorted to the beds is another example of how things were changed in the movie. Some of the characters didn't fit their roles. Mcmurphy was described in the book as tall, muscular and well built, rugged with a scar on his face, weighed two hundred and ten pounds, and wore a dirty hat and jeans with work boots; in the movie the actor was way too short and didn't have the build for the role at all and they gave him a beanie that looked like it was bought yesterday with slick clean street clothes. None of the dust and ruggedness that the book describes which would have been easy to project into real life. All of Mcmurphy's description could have been easily fit with a different actor. The black boys in the book were portrayed as varying in size and kind of cowardly, but in the movie they played more of a tough policing role and did not vary in size. While I understand fitting the bill of the black boys in the book could be troublesome or challenging I still think it is very possible just like McMurphy's character. The actor who played Chief however and Cheswick fit perfectly with their role and I was very satisfied with the choices they chose for them in the movie. Over all though they did a great job turning the book into a movie, but I say the book is far better do it having more build up and it made a lot more sense do to the fact that it described things a lot better than the movie did and took its time doing so throughout the book. Obviously a movie is constricted to a time limit, but the least they could of done is make the main character McMurphy fit the appearance of the book and included more scenes of McMurphy's early triumphs over Nurse Ratched.
