Mental illness is an element of a person’s existence; it is not the entirety of it.
In the second half of our discussion of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, we get real with mental health, both personally and regards to its representation in film over the years. We also talk about the power dynamics involved in healthcare and whether Nurse Ratched is truly the monstrous villain she is made out to be, or whether she is an “anti-villain,” if that’s a thing.
