Ratched, Netflix 2020

 If you want to live a long life, run from Ratched.

 Ratched is a Prequel (upgrading) of the Movie One who flew the Cuckoo's Nest, a movie from 1962.

The Psychiatrist Nurse Ratched, starred by the actress Sarah Paulson is a masterpiece. Manipulative, cold and calculist, she will not let you scape, unless you are her brother, the assassin of 4 priests. 


In 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind. On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred's stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smouldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.

The doctor refuses to hire her, but to get in she used chantage against one of the employees.

The doctor Richard Hanover was trying a new method to find the cure of the mind diseases. He tried the brain perforated method, with the persuasion of Ratched, and the result was of course, a murdered person. They late tried the Lobotomy method, in a dead body, which Ratched reproduced late in the last priest, the witness of her brother's murders. 

Ratched was responsible for at least two deaths directly. One she persuaded to suicide. All the patients that went inside where reasonable people with some character disfunctions, but with the time they changed inside. One of the patients was gay and they putted her inside a hotter water treatment and after the torture, she said to them that she would not be gay anymore. 

The series is an adaptation of the novel "One Who flew over the Cuckoo's Nest", 1962 by the writer Kesey, an American novelist. They have Louise Fletcher as the first nurse, she is totally different from the actual Ratched. She was really patient and even if they destroyed the hospital and Jack Nicholson almost killed her, she was still in the same position, of helping them.  In 1975 the movie was considered one of the best movies ever made. I think there these patients were really crazy, but also they showed some normality, different from the Ratched patients. I believe they have some education problems or traumas, that's why they act this way. There are cases you see, some people really do not react to the treatments. 

Sharon Stone, has a participation in the series, her son was a patient of the Doctor Richard, but a terrible episode of murdering doomed her son and he cutted his own legs and arms, that's was what the doctor said. After that, she hired a man to kill the doctor, but the rented assassin was killed in the hot chamber by Ratched. 

Rating: 10 stars

See you!
