Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


I have seen both the original and the film of this film. I probably have a deeper impression of the original. I may be confused in some places, but it should not be much different in general. By the way, I recommend you to read the original work. It is very wonderful from beginning to end. Many details have been omitted in the film. After all, time is limited.

Seeing everyone discussing McMurphy’s death, I couldn’t help but want to say a few words. This book / film can be regarded as a very real description of American mental hospitals in the 1950s and 1960s. Patients have no human rights at all, abuse occurs from time to time, and the treatment method is very single. The most powerful tool is the electric shock treatment that everyone in the book / film is afraid of. The ultimate treatment for schizophrenia is the frontal lobectomy that McMurphy finally underwent. Each hemisphere of the brain is divided into four lobes, of which the frontal lobe is the largest, accounting for about 1 / 3 of the volume. After resection, people will lose many functions, including a large part of personality. This is an extremely inhumane operation now, but Moniz, the founder of the operation, won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1949. Since the publication of this book, the United States and Europe have launched a series of campaigns against the abuse of electric shock treatment and abuse of mental patients, and passed legal provisions restricting the power of mental hospitals, which has greatly improved the living conditions of mental patients.

How can a person be diagnosed as a mental patient? As a “scientific worker”, I should say that the diagnosis of mental diseases has been greatly systematized and standardized, and there are various manual provisions for reference. However, there are always great difficulties in the diagnosis of “spirit”. Are chief and McMurphy really mental patients? Obviously, even from the perspective of our “normal people”, they don’t have any serious mental problems. The reason why chief is eccentric and silent is that his father’s Indian tribe, whose father is a chief, was invaded and died by whites, and McMurphy is at most a disobedient troublemaker and wisely thought that the mental hospital would be better than the labor reform farm. But the social norm system can’t accommodate such people who don’t obey the rules, so no matter where McMurphy is, his ending is almost doomed.

Just in the middle of the book / film, I saw them go fishing, saw them find a woman with Billy, and saw their temporary victory and joy. I almost fully integrated into it, relaxed and happy with them, and forgot the fate that will come. When McMurphy was finally sent to surgery, I was almost in tears. Such a fresh person, his mischief and vitality seem to be still in front of him, but he can’t fight the social norms all the time, and suddenly becomes a walking corpse—— He is not a vegetable. After some days after the operation, he can get up, eat and talk, but he is no longer McMurphy, but a successful work of the head nurse. The greatest sorrow in the world is nothing more than this.

Why did chief kill McMurphy before he ran away? This is a simple question, because he knows that if the real McMurphy is still alive, he will feel that he would rather die than live a walking corpse life. Also because in his heart, such McMurphy’s survival in the world is a great failure and irony. McMurphy once said that they want to leave the madhouse – freedom is the greatest victory for them. How can McMurphy leave now and be free? The only way is to die. Chief killed McMurphy, just to help him make the final struggle, and then rushed out with McMurphy’s thoughts and expectations to find their freedom.

As many people say, in fact, the situation of our “normal people” in society is very different from these mental patients. “Head nurses” are everywhere, and the strangled McMurphy is not uncommon. I like this book / film very much because I can feel their joy, pain, struggle and failure, and I am moved by their final tragic victory. I want to sum up the feelings it gives me, in four words: soul stirring.
