A classic. Not to be missed.

Cool Hand Luke is a forever classic movie that tells the fairly simple story of a man who just doesn't know how to give up.

During the opening credits we are introduced to a man named Luke (Newman); he's drunk and cutting the heads off parking meters. His crime isn't seen with sympathy and he is sentenced to two years on the chain gang in a prison camp. His treatment is inhumane as... read more

The harsh landscape of Cool Hand Luke works effectively to show us the psychological state of the characters. There is something almost Biblical, or, at the very least, Shakespearean, about Luke’s wanderings and sufferings, his willingness to damn it all and doom himself to martyrdom. From the very first scenes of his drunkenly destroying public property, for what purpose? even he can’t say, t... read more

" Notes: Even though I did like this movie, to be honest, I didn’t really blow me away after all. I mean, sure, it was well made and quite entertaining but, in my opinion, the whole thing was just too conventional.

Movies...Most Memorable Movie quotes (43 movies items)

"'What we've got here is a failure to communicate.'In 1967, "Cool Hand Luke" pitted a rebellious chain gang convict (Paul Newman) against the merciless Captain, played by Strother Martin. Captain utters this line while attempting to break the spirit of Newman's character; in the modern world, you might hear one parrot this line when dealing with someone who is being disagreeable."
