This is an all-time classic. The acting alone is unmatched in it's superbness. I could (and probably should) say more about this, but in a way it's not really all that necessary. Most people have already done a far better job, and the film really speaks for itself anyway. I'll just bring in a small contribution by saying that this film is unbelievably accurate with its portrayal of the mental health profession and facilities of the time. I know this because I've had multiple family members who were employees (and one who was a patient) at a state hospital for years (including the time periods this was released and takes place in).
