Review – This must-see classic based on Ken Kesey’s book is flowing with spirit and emotion, being funny, dramatic, shocking, and poignant as a whole. The direction sometimes seems unfocused, but the cast and story are so good that you are willing to forgive any flaws. One of the all-time best films; rarely matched in it’s power. This was Christopher Lloyd’s film debut.
