One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

Cuckoo’s Nest (53:24) Rated R for some rough & tumble language.

Cuckoo's Nest 3

All therapy and no freedom makes Mac something something. Jack Nicholson roars through the asylum in T100P podcast numero 91, messing with protocol, rule-following and sexual politics.

CORRECTION: It was actually 16 years between Cuckoo’s Nest & Silence Of The Lambs, not 17. Better at English than math, it seems.
