ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST (1975) the soundtrack to the Oscar winning masterpiece of the same name. I've only recently added this brilliant score to my soundtrack collection, after I found a 100% original first pressing WITH the autographed Jack Nicholson poster in almost mint condition. The film easily serves as a personal top 10, featuring perhaps the greatest performance of Nicholson's prolific and legendary career. Winning the 'Big 5' Oscars (Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Screenplay) only 2 other films in history have won the big 5 since (The Silence of the Lambs  being the 3rd and most recent ). Jack Nitzsche's score is equal parts haunting, and beautiful, as the films characters lives are paralleled at every given moment by the exceptional instrumentation accompanying the vivid and stylistic visuals. Truly a film, and score for the ages I would highly recommend watching ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST if you haven't already, because if you can get past the truly boring and bland advertising and promotional material for the movie, beneath the surface is one of the greatest American films ever put to screen.
