Did You Know?

Goofs

In respect to the ongoing excellent attention to period detail, in the restaurant scene with Nurse Ratched and Dr Hanover overlooking the ocean the window frames are clearly inaccurate to the period. Extensive searches of late 1940s historical photographs of Californian ocean view restaurants always yield wooden window frames, not metal. See more »

Needs more Kesey and less Murphy
23 September 2020 | by TheFearmakersSee all my reviews

Ryan Murphy makes pretty cool thrillers but he goes overboard with sex to where it seems like a poor man's "Skinemax" serialized and made homoerotic and intentionally overblown to the point of farce.

If anyone hasn't read the book One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey you should, because it's dark and intense and suspenseful and replete with true, genuine darkness of the psych ward corridors: as was the movie, to a point, despite being more or less a mainstream cult-exploitation flick.

Ryan Murphy's productions always balance in extremities, and this is starting to lose its balance... but... it's still pretty decent, and keeps you wanting more. That is the point, isn't it?
