Dated now, but a film everybody should watch to see Nurse Ratshit(!) in action.
A serious movie laced with humour, exposing unethical practices in some mental institutions in days gone by and perhaps present day too. Jack Nicholson, in the main role truly deserved his Academy Award.
Brilliant casting and realistic setting make this one of the strongest movies I have ever seen. You don't pause this one to make a cup of tea!
