One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

February 29, 2020


When Randle Patrick McMurphy gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. But Nurse Ratched runs the psychiatric ward with an iron fist, keeping her patients cowed through abuse, medication and sessions of electroconvulsive therapy. The battle of wills between the rebellious McMurphy and the inflexible Ratched soon affects all the ward’s patients.

Craig and guest co-host Randy Yarbrough (@cult45podcast on twitter) discuss what is sinister, using the Simpsons as a movie touchstone, a quick preview of the Fayetteville Comic Show and the all-time classic movie “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s nest” on this week’s Matinee Heroes!
