Harry Dean Stanton is a national treasure. The excellent character actor with the perpetual hangdog expression has burned himself into the collective American psyche. Who can forget his fine supporting turns in everything from ALIEN to REPO MAN to PARIS, TEXAS to the work of David Lynch or Monte Hellman’s TWO-LANE BLACKTOP?
At 90-years-old, Stanton finally gets the breakout leading role he deserves in LUCKY, the directorial debut of actor John Carroll Lynch. LUCKY is about the “spiritual journey” of the title character, a retired cowboy and curmudgeonly atheist whose daily routine consists of crossword puzzles, game shows and visiting the same diner and bar, at which he converses with the same colorful regulars.
After falling one day in his kitchen, Lucky is forced to belatedly confront his mortality for the first time. (Michael Smith)
