Ditto on the lobotomies. It was one of the hardest scenes in "From Hell" for me.

A part of me feels like this character does not deserve any more exploration.

I disagree, so much, because I don't think the book or movie really cared for or wanted to deal with the framing misogyny of making Nurse Ratchet the face a system she was only middle management (at best) for, but I have no faith this is going to do that lol.

I mean, it's been a long time since I've read the book, but I think the whole point of the character wasn't that she was grand or had a full, rich, inner life - she stood for mundane cruelties, random cruelties, and targeted cruelties of systems designed for compliance.

I think it's a bad idea, but when you see who produced it, it's, like, "yeah, that makes sense that he would want to revisit Asylum but with more money."

Yeah I agree, not every villain needs to be humanized

Lol yeah the more money bit... So she's an orphan, works a job as a nurse that by all means isn't a grand pay, but the wardrobe is that of a socialite? Please.

Ken Kesey said the real Ratched was a “whole lot more human” than he had remembered.

Are there ANY good origin stories of pre-existing villains? they're all totally unnecessary and stupid right?
