Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on one flew over the cuckoo’s nest as an evidence of inhumanity of psychiatric treatment. The film version of a cult novel by Ken Kesey produced a powerful impact on the general public and made people reconsider some of their stereotypes. Viewers are given a chance to observe the events taking place in a mental hospital, which seemed to be a reliable shelter for the main character, Randle McMurphy. Being certainly unaware of possible consequences, he was simulating madness in order to escape imprisonment. This hospital turns out to be a peculiar model of society with similar processes. Nevertheless, at certain point viewers arrive at the conclusion that the society may be called a model of a mental hospital too. These two categories reverse their roles. Patients of a mental health clinic are not insane indeed. They are volunteers to stay there because this institution happened to be the only shelter for them. However, absurd society norms overtake them even in the asylum. They are trapped in a vicious circle of both their personal and collective madness. There is no alternative. Only two variants may be chosen – either to become a victim of electric shock therapy or to undergo total manipulation and brainwashing.
