Cool Hand Luke

Sunday, June 23

In Cool Hand Luke, maybe Paul Newman’s single finest film role, Luke is literally irrepressible; it’s impossible not to love him. Or at least, it’s impossible for the audience and his peers. Various authority figures

The Shawshank Redemption

Sunday, August 18

Casablanca

August 31-Sept. 1

Casablanca lands so routinely in listings of the top two or three movies of all time, it’s become almost boring to call it great. It’s the definition of a Hollywood masterpiece. The scenes and the
