Cool as Luke

My newest Retro Rocket review column is now up at the Average Joes, and I'm reviewing Cool Hand Luke, one of the best movies you've never bothered to see.

Read it NOW.

A movie consistently in my inconsistent top ten.

"Can people escape themselves?"
Only if they try. Luke embraced who he was warts and all.

"Can they escape society?"
Not sure what you mean by this one. If you mean can society break anyone down to make their mind right? No. You can perservere. Luke does, though it costs him.

"Can they change?"
Again only if they want to. Luke couldn't forgive himself for the war and was constantly trying to punish himself and the authority that he held resposible for his lot.
