I Will Wring That Birdy’s Neck.
The film,”One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” came out in 1975 produced by Milos Foreman. The book came out in 1962 written by Ken Kesey. The movie “ One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, is a terrible movie because it did not coincide with my thoughts of how the movie should have went. The movie deserves a .5 out of 5 stars because of the actors, how close it follows the book, and that it needs a remake.
The characters that I had thought would play the roles perfectly were not included in the movie. The characters chosen for the movie were ultimately not what I had expected. I imagined Neal McDonough playing McMurphy and Meryl Streep playing Nurse Ratched. The characters chosen played the roles well, but didn’t look the roles. McMurphy didn’t have; red hair, tattoos, or huge muscles. The movie probably would have been quite long had they followed the book exactly.
The movie doesn’t follow the book as closely as one would like, although we know it would call for a very long movie. There were things that didn’t match up correctly and they would have to make the movie different otherwise it would have been a long movie. At the end of the book McMurphy choked Nurse Ratched just like the movie, except the times were different and it threw me for a loop, so I at first was not aware of what was going to happen. When McMurphy stole the boat, the people were not doing some of the things that they had done in the book which made the whole thing different. I don’t believe they had the technology to do some of the things that they had to do maybe so thats why it didn’t follow the book to a tee.
This movie needs a remake, one that has all the elements, possibly in a shortened time period. The graphics were a little off, the noises were still made when Washington knocked McMurphy over the head. Some of the things like the blood that covered Billy Bibbit seemed too shiny making it look quite fake. A newer version would have much better graphics which would indeed enhance the movie, making it substantially better to watch. They could also update the characters and make them all seem and fit the parts they would play.
If the movie is to have higher ratings this is what it needs to have done to better keep the viewer involved; change the actors, follow the book closer, and present it in a new and improved format.
