Watched: 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'

Number 33 on the AFI movie list is One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I thought this movie was brilliant. From the very beginning, I was drawn in with the characters. Jack Nicholson was so great in this role (but when is he not?) and the supporting cast of characters was very intriguing. I see why this made the top movie list, although I think 33 is too high - that being said, I haven't seen most of the 32 above it, so I'll reserve judgement. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who has not seen it - which I highly recommend - but the ending really surprised me. This movie would be great for a college film class, although I am sure many curricula already use it. Fabulous movie and very entertaining.

 #33 on the movie list. Done.
