One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) IMDb

The inevitable, exaggerated swing back from the institutionalizing agenda of The Sniper (1952). This film is built on the reaction to Laing/Rosenhan resulting in exaggerated reliance on DSM simplification and eventually a massive industry for Prozac and similar treatments. The movie has aged better than its own idealism.
