Sometimes the mix of drama and comedy is uncomfortable to watch. It tries to be more than just a mindless comedy, but it just doesn't quite gel. There are good moments, just not enough of them.
(br) wrote: A film about madness, with crazy, to where Jack Nicholson is the most normal person in the film, yes, that's possible, "Stranger in the Nest" is almost an essay on the madness, here we have the story of Randle Patrick McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), a subject "normal" that is sending the asylum, and there coexists with crazy making them rediscover the pleasures of life, and vice versa, we have a message of friendship and human freedom on the social reins, moreover, we have great performances, not just Nicholson is fantastic, but all are absurdly crazy, you watch the movie anxious, because every second someone can do crazy, crazy ones that happen several times in the film, with screams, noises, fights, all about the serene look of the head nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), (in which case, we are, viewers), and you witnesses this and is shocked and disturbed. The picture is gray, colorless and lifeless, pass all hospital atmosphere of the film, but could have a color to spend the shock even tone on the roadmap, it seems that the film has no script, it looks like things simply are happening in the same madness, and his pace is extremely slow, it seems that the film does not have a development, many go to sleep, others leave, and those who remain will see that it was worth it.
