Maverick Hall, Woodstock

Milos Forman’s film, winner of five Oscars (including Best Picture) and nominated for four more, follows a troublemaker (Oscar-winner Jack Nicholson) who gets himself transferred from prison farm to mental institution. Once he starts banging heads with a totalitarian nurse (Oscar winner Louise Fletcher), he wonders if he made a mistake. Gorgeous to see (thanks to cinematographer Haskell Wexler), darkly funny, featuring a brilliant ensemble and rich with meaning, this film deserves repeated viewings. (U.S., 1974, 133m).

“***** … mesmerizing.” –The Guardian
