Movie Reviews

Creative Loafing - 10/10 by Matt Brunson Equally superb as a comedy, a drama and a social critique, the picture sports the added treat of boasting a wide variety of soon-to-be familiar faces in the supporting ranks.
Little White Lies - 10/10 by Sophie Wyatt A dark vision of the American psychiatric system which incorporates a tragic seam of comedy.
Guardian - 10/10 by Peter Bradshaw Watching this again, I am less inclined to regard Nurse Ratched as a simple villain, despite her vindictive humiliation of poor, shy Billy, and more like a professional who refuses to be bullied by a bunch of men.
Daily Express (UK) - 10/10 by Allan Hunter Nicholson captures all the daredevil rebel spirit of Randle P. McMurphy, a prisoner who is transferred to a state mental institution.
Observer (UK) - 10/10 by Wendy Ide It's not just Nicholson's performance that makes this film a masterpiece; it's the fact that Forman was able to prevent that performance from capsizing the whole enterprise.
Irish Times - 10/10 by Tara Brady The sexual politics have dated, yet conversely, Cuckoo's overlap with Michel Foucault's ideas on the construction and socio-political appropriation of madness remains potent and urgent.
Total Film - 10/10 by Jane Crowther Playing the mental-hospital firebrand who rebels against monstrous Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), Nicholson seduces in an anti-establishment classic with a gut-punch exit.
Empire - 10/10 by Jake Hamilton Too many classic set pieces to mention but keep your ears cocked for that immortal line "Mmmm, Juicy Fruit." Certified brilliance.
Radio Times - 10/10 by Tom Hutchinson This film is one of the classic movies of the 1970s, thanks in no small measure to the talents of director Milos Forman.
New York Daily News - 10/10 by Kathleen Carroll Nicholson explodes on the screen in a performance so flawless in timing and character perception that it should send half the stars in Hollywood back to acting school.
Three Movie Buffs - 10/10 by Scott Nash It was Nicholson's first Oscar win and this remains, in many ways, his signature performance.
Movie Metropolis - 10/10 by John J. Puccio ...a terrific piece of moviemaking--thoughtful, poignant, funny, and uplifting.
