Today I checked out Lucky, while it works as a meditation on mortality, it's not as deep as it think it is. Harry Dean Stanton on the other hand, does what he always does best. His performance by itself is enough of a reason to watch it. It does have its moments here and there. Works as a swan song for Stanton's career.
Coming Friday, Lucky, with Harry Dean Stanton. LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town.

“When this kind of fire starts, it is very hard to put out. The tender boughs of innocence burn first, and the wind rises, and then all goodness is in jeopardy.” I’m happy that Criterion is finally releasing the most underappreciated film of David Lynch. I think that the reasons why people were so quick to hate the film was that Lynch used a new actress to play Donna and then there’s the audience. There were people at Cannes who didn’t watch the show who saw FWWM and I think they were somewhat confused. Rarely the television and film audience cross over because they are two different things take for instance “Entourage” or the “Absolutely Fabulous Movie”. Neither were successful in the box office or with critics. Tarantino said, “After I saw Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me at Cannes, David Lynch had disappeared so far up his own ass that I have no desire to see another David Lynch movie until I hear something different.” I find that statement unfair and I think Tarantino is far more conceited than Lynch. The film was made for those who truly loved the television series and David Lynch’s work. Some thought it was too adult to be part of Twin Peaks… ahh what a simpler time back then. Over the years people have accepted “Fire Walk with Me” and that makes me happy. I do wish they’d hurry up and release “The Straight Story”, “Elephant Man”, “Inland Empire”, and “Lost Highway” on Criterion. “Lost Highway” is the only film that came from Lynch that I probably will never fully understand.
The Dreamland has a couple of great films today, but tomorrow is packed with them as well! On Wednesday, Oct. 18th, we’ll have the critically acclaimed LUCKY featuring the great Harry Dean Stanton in his final role. Get your tickets in the profile link! #nantucketDREAMLAND
Just saw the 2017 film Lucky at the Cedar-Lee. It was the late Harry Dean Stanton's swan song to a 60 year film career. He was 90 years old at the time of filming his final starring role. His scenes with David Lynch and his Alien co-star Tom Skerritt were equally hilarious and poignant. Great sharp dialogue and monologues on life, aging & death. Has a 97% on RT and I highly recommend it if you're a serious film fan like myself. The final shot of Harry was a fitting final coda to an long & excellent career. 🎥 #Lucky#cinema#film#HarryDeanStanton#DavidLynch#TomSkerritt#RonLivingston#EdBegleyJr
Lucky (2017) directed by John Carroll Lynch, starring Harry Dean Stanton in one of his last appearances before his death a month ago at the age of 91. Like his body, Stanton’s performance is spare and distilled- but it diminishes it to call it a performance.It is a joyous, humane, and - forgive the word - profound film. Swipe to see (try to see - one of my lesser efforts)
a contraband photo I took in the theatre of a moment at the fiesta - a peak moment in a near perfect movie. #harrydeanstanton#johncarrolllynch#lucky#davidlynch#movie
Starts Friday: LUCKY is the final film starring the legendary Harry Dean Stanton, who died last month at 91. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. #Lucky#LuckyFilm#HarryDeanStanton#comingsoon
