    My 10th grade teacher used the same connections in this movie and we watched it during class.  I had seen it prior so was familiar with the movie.  Personally, I think it's a bunch of hogwash.  If you think long and hard enough you can theorize just about anything to your way of thinking.     

    He tried the same thing in the movie Bonnie and Clyde.  I just enjoyed the movie for what it was - entertainment.

    Cool Hand Luke is a great allegory. I thought it was an excellent wake-up call. Even today, we would persecute Jesus.

    To me..Cool Hand luke is just a good movie..entertainment...guess I am shallow but sometimes it is nice to just enjoy something without disecting it.

    Its a great movie,

    From what I understand, the eating of the eggs was meant to be symbolic of Luke taking on the sins of the world.

    The guard "with no eyes" could be a spiritually blind person

    Dragline could be linked to Judas because he tells the authorities where Luke is.

    Thats my two cents anyway...love the movie

    Sorry but I can't see any connection between Luke and Christ... Having said that, one can study any film/book character and make similarities toward any historical figure... So the connection/similarities are dependent on the person looking for them!

    Not , sure, it's a long time since I saw this, the individual refusing to conform, I think I would tend to look for parallels with:
    Winston - 1984.
    No. 6 - The Prisoner (the old one, not that recent, abysmal, rehash) et al.
    Perhaps they, in some way, were re-telling the life of Christ?
