ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
November 29, 2015  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
This 1975 movie, produced by Michael Douglas, took the role that Michael’s dad, Kirk Douglas, long had wanted to play himself, and gave it to Jack Nicholson – who was brilliant in it. But so is almost everyone in this Milos Forman movie, from Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched to Danny DeVito and Christopher Lloyd, later reunited on Taxi, as inmates at the lunatic asylum where Nicholson’s Randall McMurphy voluntarily commits himself. Shockingly good film, from start to finish.

whack-a-mole
Thanks for the alert that "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" was playing on TCM at 8:00 p.m. today. Instead, I had the opportunity to record "The Professionals," which played instead, and had apparently been scheduled by TCM for some time, since it was a retrospective of the director of the several films shown tonight.

I'd rather have seen "One Flew," as you advertised. What happened?
