One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

Unspooled #38 January 31, 2019

Paul & Amy fly over 1975’s countercultural touchstone One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest! They discuss how the film strays from Ken Kesey’s novel, discover how Milos Forman caught actors in unguarded moments, and ask whether R.P. McMurphy or Nurse Ratched really had the right of their struggle. Plus: Matt Walsh (Veep, Under The Eiffel Tower) tells us about his time working in a psych ward.

Next week we kick off our miniseries looking back at the films of 2018, with an episode focusing on blockbusters! Follow us on Twitter @Unspooled, get more info at unspooledpod.com, and don’t forget to rate, review & subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts. Photo by Kim Troxall.
