Lucky shows the spiritual journey of a man in his nineties. He finds himself with good health, having outlived his peers, which pushes him to revaluate his life and seek a "revelation." Harry Dean Stanton's latest film (he is known for his work within Paris, Texas, Alien, Twin Peaks) is a tender existentialist fable. In a bar, with Johnny Cash in the background, he reconnects with some of his colleagues that made a difference in his life (in the main character's life and in the actor's life). One of them is David Lynch, in one of the main roles.
“Lucky combines, in equal parts, humor and dramatic intesity (…) Hard to imagine a better tribute to the vast artistic path from the Texan actor.”
– Carlos Bonfil: La Jornada
“The film subtly shifts from a quietly comical character study to a delicate reflection on loneliness and mortality.”
– Jeannette Catsoulis: The New York Times
“Harry Dean Stanton Gives a Performance for the Ages (…) a wonderful performance, artfully rearranged from the remnants of a lifetime of wonderful performances.”
– David Ehrlich: Indiewire
