Ken Kesey’s 1962 cult novel of the same name found its ideal interpreters in Forman and his star Jack Nicholson, deliciously devilish in the role of Randle “Mac” McMurphy, a rowdy Irish-American reprobate who worms his way out of hard labor in the slammer by copping an insanity plea, only to find life in the mental ward under the dictatorial regime of Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) is no bed of roses. A cinematic blast of rude, rebellious laughter in the face of authority, with a peerless ensemble cast that includes Brad Dourif, Christopher Lloyd, and Danny DeVito.
