We see a lot of dead fish with one long scene in particular which involves some unpleasant images and dialogue about putting fish on hooks. Then they come back from fishing with some big dead fish.

This film is pretty groundbreaking in that none of the patients are violent or dangerous except for McMurphy, who is not actually mentally ill. They’re all good people and it’s the staff who are violent. The one secede of violence by McMurphy is completely justified

The film is set in a mental institution. We don’t know most of the characters’ diagnoses, but many of them are mistreated and taken advantage of due to their disability.

Sad but also hopeful. (Don’t read on if you don’t want spoilers) McMurphy is left brain damaged by ECT and the Chief smothers him with a pillow as a mercy killing. The Chief then takes back his power and autonomy by picking up the control panel in the hydrotherapy room (which had previously been shown as being too heavy to lift) and smashes a window with it, echoing one of McMurphy’s earlier escape attempts. As he runs away from the institution, the other patients cheer him on.
