Cool Hand Luke
When petty criminal Luke Jackson is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison farm, he doesn't play by the rules of either the sadistic warden or the yard's resident heavy, Dragline, who ends up admiring the new guy's unbreakable will. Luke's bravado, even in the face of repeated stints in the prison's dreaded solitary confinement cell, "the box," make him a rebel hero to his fellow convicts and a thorn in the side of the prison officers.

(ru) wrote: A great piece of film making. I got goosebumps whilst watching this, and still felt a rush for sometime after. 50 years of surfing collated to make a very enjoyable documentary. I'm in awe of the amount of footage they managed to cut together and the editing techniques used to make some of the old footage come to life. The interviews with the surfers were inspring, and to see them actually ride those big waves was breath taking. It's not all about the surfing though, but also the lifestyle and friendships that come with it. I was lucky enough to see this on a projector screen which made it that more amazing.

(kr) wrote: "My Dog Skip" is an unforgettable classic! This family film will delight animal lovers, children and adults, and lovers of movies with a good story and likeable characters. But beware, it could turn into a real tear-jerker at the end.

(ag) wrote: Os atores parecem amadores no modo como declamam suas falas. O que se v que o estilo do diretor de narrar sua histria. Os dilogos fervilham lirismo em seu matiz levemente filosfico e, com isso, a trama, absurda em si, nos envolve sem nos tocarmos disso. Original, simples e brilhante.

Hackman and Nolte are great together, and Ed Harris has a nice supporting role. [first lines] Russell Price: Can I get a ride? Claire: You're going to love this war... Russell Price: Hmmm. Claire: Good guys, bad guys and cheap shrimp. Claire: Did you dream about Miss Panama last night? Russell Price: No, I dreamed about you. Claire: Have a good time? Russell Price: Yeah, and you did too! Oates: How d'ya like Nicaragua? Russell Price: It's beautiful. Oates: Yeah, it's a shitload of Greasers though, you know. Russell Price: Pardon my French, but who's fucking side are you on? Marcel Jazy: I work for everyone. Russell Price: That's a great job! Russell Price: [In Spanish] Do you know who controls this area? Sandinista with radio: [In Spanish] Who knows? Claire: You chose the wrong side. Marcel Jazy: In twenty years we shall know who's right. Marcel Jazy: I like you people, but you are sentimental shits! You fall in love with the poets; the poets fall in love with the Marxists; the Marxists fall in love with themselves. The country falls in love with the rhetoric, and in the end we are stuck with tyrants. Woman in refugee camp: [looking at picture of dead Alex Grazier on TV] Did you know the man who was killed? Claire: [she nods 'yes'] Woman in refugee camp: Fifty thousand Nicaraguans have died and now a Yankee. Perhaps now America will be outraged at what has happened here. Claire: Perhaps they will. Woman in refugee camp: Maybe we should have killed an American journalist fifty years ago. Russell Price: [At the rebels victory parade] What the hell are you doin' here? Oates: It's a free country. I mean... it's free now anyway. Oates: [Drinking from a cup] Nica libre - rum and coke and no ice. You want some? Oates: [Price ignores him and Oates looks mildly concerned] You weren't gonna turn me in, are you? Oates: [Price walks away without a word and Oates smiles and shouts] See ya in Thailand! [last lines] Claire: Do you think we fell in love with too much? Russell Price: I'd do it again.
