Revisiting Movies: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is about the ‘Outcasts’

A still from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Well all of us have some unusual fear within ourselves which is for no reason at all, many times it affects our various decisions which can lead us to a major problem, and we ourselves leading to trapping our minds. This unusual fear restricts us from doing what we actually want to, it keeps us away from our reality, which can further lose its existence.

At the times, we do things just for others which goes havoc and invites troubles not practically but at least in our minds. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is one such film that can inspire you and teach you to see life through different perspectives. This film feels relevant today especially in a time where people are suffering from depression, anxiety, and are unaware of its consequences. And these all begin from that Unusual Fear which cages our mind and can be there forever.

A scene from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Everyone around is an outcast. Really? Many times we come across a situation in our life, where we felt like there were people around us telling us to act more “normal” and to try and be just like everyone else. And we know that a big part of us just don’t want to. But what’s the definition of being normal? Is there something clear for that word or is it just meant to be said? This film conveys a variety of human aspects, the deep message within it feels so relatable in today’s times. Based on the novel, Director Milos Forman has made it very well with the best performances by Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher.
