A State of Madness (Dominican Republic)

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a Best Picture Golden Globe and Oscar winner in 1976, made such an indelible impression on viewers that for decades since its release, it has colored an audience’s view of both mental institutions and movies that take place within them. Based on a true story, A State of Madness slowly and subtly upends some of those expectations, using its setting as a means by which to explore the larger moral rot of the system that surrounds it.
