A fantastic portrayal of a mental asylum and its patients. Murphy’s rebellion against the mental institute.
A great character study of a damaged man, with lots of heart wrenching performances from the supporting cast as well
Wow, just wow. Amazing movie with Jack N. playing an impressive role! So many twists and turns, and really hard hitting rollercoaster!
Not as good as the die hard fans would say, but it did paint a descriptive picture on the working class, mental health, and abusive care.
It’s as beautiful as it is humorous and fun
A very interesting look into the human psyche. This movie makes you question what it means to be insane. Who are the actual crazy ones?
Almost perfect and a showcase of some great talents. Look for a young Danny Devito
The performances pull the emotions out, most of all empathy with how similar life in the “real world“ can mirror this kind of asylum
Watched this for the first time yesterday and wow. This film is timeless. Better than 90% of films nowadays.
My favorite classic ever. Brilliant in ever way. It will be impossible for me to stop loving this incredible film
