Total classic! An emotional rollercoaster (intrigued by Jack Nicholson, angry at the nurse, excited about the escape, laughing at the boat trip, sad about some patients, amazed by the Chief etc etc) that very few movies can match. Great acting, great story, great filming, great setting, great everything; it just all comes together in this film. Everyone should see this at least once! At least!
Chief sincerely touched me. A beautiful movie. In 1975, he was truly groundbreaking, and therefore deserves a permanent place among the outstanding works of cinema.
I need a friend like Chef in my life
Very sick movie about a psych ward featuring absolutely amazing acting by Jack Nicholson.
Interesting to see Devito, Nickolson and the actor who plays Grimer Wormtongue in there from way back in their early days.
