(Miloš Forman, US 1975, 133 min., 35mm)
After Bedlam. In this Academy Award–winning screen adaptation of Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel about life inside a mental institution, Jack Nicholson stars as the witty con man who finagles his way out of his prison work detail by convincing the guards that he is insane. His plan goes awry, however, when he meets Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), whose chilling self-righteousness drives her charges into submission.
