Cool Hand Luke

"Hooh! Aah! Hooh! Aah! That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang!"

That was one of the things that came to mind while watching "Cool Hand Luke," another one of the movies from our Netflix list.

I didn't really know what to expect from this movie, but I greatly enjoyed it.

Luke finds himself in a rural prison for sawing off the tops of parking meters. There are not only a ton of rules at this place but a certain social order. Luke refuses to conform. He finds himself going head to head with the big guy in prison and underneath the bosses that are determined to break him.

It's a determination inspiring type of movie.

Oh and there is a scantily-clad-woman-washing-car scene in it too.

Carr:Them clothes got laundry numbers on them. You remember your number and always wear the ones that has your number. Any man forgets his number spends a night in the box. These here spoons you keep with you. Any man loses his spoon spends a night in the box. There's no playing grab-ass or fighting in the building. You got a grudge against another man, you fight him Saturday afternoon. Any man playing grab-ass or fighting in the building spends a night in the box. First bell's at five minutes of eight when you will get in your bunk. Last bell is at eight. Any man not in his bunk at eight spends the night in the box. There is no smoking in the prone position in bed. To smoke you must have both legs over the side of your bunk. Any man caught smoking in the prone position in bed... spends a night in the box. You get two sheets. Every Saturday, you put the clean sheet on the top... the top sheet on the bottom... and the bottom sheet you turn in to the laundry boy. Any man turns in the wrong sheet spends a night in the box. No one'll sit in the bunks with dirty pants on. Any man with dirty pants on sitting on the bunks spends a night in the box. Any man don't bring back his empty pop bottle spends a night in the box. Any man loud talking spends a night in the box. You got questions, you come to me. I'm Carr, the floor walker. I'm responsible for order in here. Any man don't keep order spends a night in...
Luke
: ...the box.
