For today’s sketch I drew from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. 

It’s odd, despite being mostly a fan of Miloš Forman‘s work I’ve only seen this once and I don’t really remember much about it beyond Jack Nicholson‘s antics… and this.

Before seeing the movie as a whole I saw a clip of the final scene of Will Sampson as “Chief” Bromden, after smothering a lobotomized McMurphy with his pillow, pulls up the sink (something McMurphy had been trying to do most of the movie) and throws it through the hospital ward’s window and escapes.

Ultimately, I think, while McMurphy may be the catalyst of the story, Bromden is the hero and in the end, if there is any, the victory is his.
