An irreverent, funny, spiritual journey of a 90-year-old curmudgeon, Lucky stars Harry Dean Stanton (Paris, Texas) — who passed away last month at the age of 91 — in the performance of his lifetime. But more than a shaggy-dog ramble, the film is a thoughtful meditation on community and mortality. The humor of the film permeates throughout, but we challenge you to forget the soliloquy by David Lynch (yes, the David Lynch) at the local bar, expressing his respect and longing for his missing pet tortoise, President Roosevelt. Lynch’s character and his transformation acts as counterbalance to Lucky’s shrinking future. The first feature film directed by veteran actor John Carroll Lynch (Fargo; Zodiac) is made all the more poignant by serving as the final statement of Stanton, one of Hollywood’s finest character actors.  ~OY
