"One flew over the Cuckoo's nest" is an interesting one as it's told from the point of view of the indian mute in the film, so it's an entirely different viewpoint, both are really good but i guess the film wins out due to the performances.

Also "Carrie" i would say the film is superior, the climactic death of the mother i find much more satisfying, the grave ending as well.
The book is interesting but slight, where as the film is overblown at moments but still keeps a sympathetic main character and i love the tension built up during the blood bucket scene.

VYVYAN: Great! I'll get the car!
NEIL: I'll get a cushion.
