  • Very interesting sidebar of cinema of what makes a great film adaptation.

  • Very, very interesting.

  • Ast faras.

  • I'm concerned, uh, whole film adaptation from From Books.

  • There's really only one movie to talk about.

  • I mean, we can throw out some other, you know, second placers, but, uh, one flew over the Cuckoo's Nest is one of the greatest novels ever written and one of the greatest films ever made.

  • One of the most brilliant central performances.

  • Five or six of the best supporting performances of all time.

  • Milos Forman directing his ass off.

  • I mean, what, this check lunatic?

  • The guy who made hair has to say about America and insane asylums.

  • I don't know, but there's something about that book.

  • Uh, I was a senior in high school and I had this great English teacher and she had a class called insanity versus sanity, and we studied one for the Cuckoo's Nest and I read the book, and it's just one of those books.

  • I started underlining passages.

  • I had seen the movie like my parents made me watch it, but I don't really remember it.

  • But when I was reading the book, I was like, Okay, this is the greatest American novel of all time and it it gets it so much that's important about how we define what is saying what is insane.

  • Um, there's Thea, amazing character of the chief who is narrating the whole story.

  • It's just so brilliant.

  • I mean, to set it in that way.

  • And then I watched the movie a little while later, and at this point, I'm now in love with acting and Jack Nicholson.

  • It just doesn't get better than that.

  • They've been giving me 10,000 watts a day.

  • Next chick takes me on is gonna light up like a pinball machine.

  • Um, that Z did you catch that?

  • I could do Nicholson impersonations from this movie all day?

  • Uh, but it really is.

  • If you haven't seen it.

  • It's one of the greatest endings to a film ever.

  • It's absolutely profound.

  • It's one of those movies that whenever I feel lost, and I'm not sure what the point of anything is, I watched that movie and it kinda orients you.

  • Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd Louise Fletcher.

  • Um uhh.

  • Everybody in that movie is amazing.

  • And what you want.

  • I guess that am I clear that that's probably my favorite film adaptation.
