Lucky – Review

12 October 2017 3:08 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Harry Dean Stanton says farewell in the movie Lucky, which turned out to be the beloved actor’s last. Not much happens in Lucky and its slow, unhurried style may not appeal to everyone, but this movie has a big heart and a moving performance by Stanton that acts as a summary of  his long and extraordinary career.

Lucky follows Lucky (Stanton) and his friends and neighbors who live in the dusty desert town of Cave Creek, Arizona. Lucky is 90 years old but fiercely independent, rejecting any idea of assisted living. The film follows his routines over a few days of his  life. Lucky smokes, takes a sponge bath, gets dressed, listens to Spanish-language music, does yoga, and smokes some more. Lucky’s interactions with others consists of eating at a diner run by his friend Joe (Barry Shabaka Henley) where he does his crossword puzzles, and a daily stop at the local watering hole. »

Lff 2017: ‘Lucky’ Review: Dir. John Carroll Lynch (2017)

9 October 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Lucky review: Respected character actor John Carroll Lynch makes his directorial debut with this masterstroke in movie making and acting, particularly from its leading man; Harry Dean Stanton in one of his final roles. Lucky review

Lucky review by Paul Heath.

Making his directorial debut with this modest, character driven indie is celebrated actor John Caroll Lynch (Fargo, Jackie), a veteran of the big and small screen with over one hundred credits to his name, spanning a three-decade career.

Looking around the web, Lucky’s synopsis is described using just a few words; ‘the spiritual journey of a ninety-old atheist’. Of course, there’s a lot more to this very intricate, relatively short insight into the title character’s very long life, as he goes about his daily routines in a small desert town. Written by Logan Sparks and Drago Sumonja, Lucky has sadly become more known as one the last films to feature, »

61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Lucky (2017)

9 October 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lucky, 2017.

Directed by John Carroll Lynch

Starring Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Barry Shabaka Henley, Beth Grant, and Tom Skerritt.

Synopsis:

The spiritual journey of a ninety-year-old atheist.

Late, lamented Hollywood legend Harry Dean Stanton had the sort of face the camera practically keeled over for. Less a visage than an ordnance survey map of Hollywood history, Dean Stanton’s features were testament to his extraordinary 60 year career as a ubiquitous, scene-stealing support player in the likes of Alien and Repo Man.

Small wonder that debut director John Carroll Lynch makes such sublime use of the actor’s wonderfully weathered features in his lyrical small town drama Lucky. Indeed, Stanton’s face practically is the entire story, competing with the sun-baked, cactus-strewn landscapes for sheer ruggedness.

Named after Stanton’s central character, Lucky is that rare movie that gifts the actor a juicy lead role, comparable to his iconic desert-trekking loner in Wim Wenders’ Paris, »

Josh Hutcherson Leaves Panem Behind For Seth Rogen's Show About "Time Travel and STDs"

5 October 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

I'm trying to think of a succinct way of describing the plot of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's new TV show, Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson, and this is all I've got: Hutcherson is a janitor at a lab and ends up traveling back in time with two warriors from the future (who are also somehow in a video game he plays?) to stop his boss at the lab from ever getting herpes. Because the herpes cure his boss eventually discovers goes on to destroy mankind. Mmhmm. As, um, out there as it sounds, the trailer is pretty promising. Not only that, but the cast is killer: Hutcherson, Ed Begley Jr., Happy Endings's Eliza Coupe, Preacher's Derek Wilson, and more. To celebrate the release of the trailer at New York Comic-Con, Rogen tweeted, "Here's the trailer for Future Man, our new TV show about time travel and »

Future Man: Josh Hutcherson's sci-fi comedy series gets a trailer

5 October 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Ahr Kirsten Howard Oct 6, 2017

The first official trailer for Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson, is chock-full of classic science fiction references. Are you in or out?

Imagine a mash-up between The Last Starfighter, Back to the Future, and Terminator, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of the premise behind Hulu’s new time travel comedy, Future Man.

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

From the minds of Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, the writers who brought Sausage Party to the big screen, Future Man tells the story of Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson of The Hunger Games), a janitor by day/gamer by night who is recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity.

Wamg Interview: Actor John Carroll Lynch – Director of Lucky

27 September 2017 4:50 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Actor John Carroll Lynch first caught the attention of moviegoers in 1996 when he played Frances McDormand’s husband in Fargo (“People don’t much use the three-cent stamp”). A native of Boulder, Colorado, Lynch spent the next decade popping up in supporting roles in a variety of films including Volcano, Face/Off, and Gothika. It was his chilling, scene-stealing turn in David Fincher’s Zodiac in 2007 that made moviegoers really take notice and when he went from being ‘that Norm Gunderson guy’ to ‘John Carroll Lynch, – dynamic character actor’.  Lynch continued to impress in roles on the big screen in films like Gran Torino, Shutter Island, Jackie (where he played Lyndon Johnson), and The Founder, where he played one of the McDonald brothers. On the small screen he’s entertained audiences as John Wayne Gacy on American Horror Story and even had his own stand-alone episode of The Walking Dead. »

Harry Dean Stanton: ‘Lucky’ Director, Cast Share Memories of Working With Late Actor

27 September 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The cast and crew of “Lucky” paid tribute to its star, the late Harry Dean Stanton, at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday night.

Director John Carroll Lynch, along with cast members Ed Begley Jr., Yvonne Huff Lee, Beth Grant, Ron Livingston, James Darren, and Barry Henley, gathered at the Lynwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood and reminisced about working with Stanton.

Everyone involved, from the creative team to the actors, had the same simple response for what brought them to the project: Harry Dean Stanton.

Grant said she immediately clicked with Stanton. “We were so affectionate, hugging and kissing all the time. Well, I was hugging and kissing him,” she recalled. “One of my biggest thrills was sitting with David Lynch and Harry Dean Stanton and running lines before the scene. It was like a dream come true.”

Annette Bening Addresses Lack of Female Directors at Venice: ‘Things Are Changing’

30 August 2017 5:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annette Bening, in Venice to preside over the film festival’s competition jury, said Wednesday at the festival’s opening press conference that female filmmakers needed to concentrate on making movies with broad appeal in order to raise their profile in the industry.

Asked to comment on the dearth of female directors represented in the competition — only one of the 21 films is in competition is helmed by a woman — the American actress avoided criticizing the festival directly, saying that she “didn’t count the number of films that were directed by women….I didn’t approach it that way.”

But, she added, “as women, we have to be sharp, shrewd and creative in what we choose to make. Sexism does exist and there is no question about it. But things are changing.

The more we can make films that speak to everybody, the more we will be regarded as filmmakers,” she said, »
