Lucky – Review

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.

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

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,

Interview, Audio: John Carroll Lynch Directs an Elegy for Harry Dean Stanton in ‘Lucky’

Chicago – He is a familiar character actor, having a long career with roles in TV and film as diverse as “Fargo,” “The Drew Carey Show,” “Gran Torino,” “The Americans.” and the recent “Jackie” and “The Founder.” He is actor John Carroll Lynch, and he has made his directorial debut in the wonderfully essential “Lucky,” whose title character is portrayed by Harry Dean Stanton. The film is a perfect elegy for the actor, who passed away last month at the age of 91.

Lucky” was voted in as the Audience Choice favorite at the 5th annual Chicago Critics Film Festival in May of this year, and has a nationwide release on October 6th, 2017.

Review: ‘Lucky’ is a Superb Punctuation Mark to a Remarkable Career

Having lost Harry Dean Stanton a mere two weeks ago, the wound still seems too fresh to speak of. Indeed, as I write this review, it’s a bit like sprinkling salt on the cut — nay, laceration. While the legendary man’s passing is more than heartbreaking, his final film, Lucky, stands as a glowing testament to his capabilities as an actor. Along with a towering performance in a career full of towering performances (no matter how small the part), the film feels fitting for the final work of Stanton, and one, I would imagine, he would feel is a superb punctuation mark to a remarkable career.

The plot is simple: a man faces his existence after having lived what can only be imagined as a full and eventful 90-year life. Stanton commands the film in a quiet way, something which most Hollywood actors can only dream of accomplishing during the length of their careers.

Wamg Interview: Actor John Carroll Lynch – Director of Lucky

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.

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.”
