Harry Dean Stanton Lucky Logan Sparks says the revered actor "was also at peace." VideoHarry Dean Stanton - Lucky
After collapsing with a dizzy spell, Lucky goes to his mystified doctor who says that despite his heavy smoking, he is in very good shape.
He has evaded the heart disease and cancer that would have carried off other people by now. So Lucky must concentrate on something vouchsafed to only a very few: the agonising existential purity of very-old-ness and not-yet-dead-ness.
This he does with a certain stoic blankness, showing up in the local bar and chatting with the regulars, including David Lynch as a man who has lost his tortoise and James Darren as the Christopher Walken soundalike smoothie who is stepping out with the proprietor, Elaine Beth Grant.
Back at the bar, Lucky listens to a story from one of the bar regulars, Paulie, about how he met and married his first wife. Lucky reflects on how he never married or had any lasting relationships.
Lucky sees Howard talking with a lawyer named Bobby Lawrence about making a will for himself and wanting to leave all of his possessions to his pet tortoise.
Lucky causes a scene over Howard's life choices, declaring that everyone in this world is alone and is meant to be alone.
Another day or two later, Joe's employee Loretta visits Lucky to check on him. While smoking marijuana , Lucky shows Loretta old photos of his time in the US Navy and they watch old VHS tapes of Liberace performing in concert.
While having coffee at the diner, Lucky runs into Bobby Lawrence, where he confides in him about his accident days earlier.
Bobby tells Lucky about a time when he nearly got into a car accident and tells Lucky to always be prepared for the unexpected. Lucky visits a pet store to look for a small animal to adopt as a companion, but he instead decides on a box of live crickets.
Lucky meets a World War II Marine veteran named Fred. Lucky tells Fred about his time in the US Navy during the war in the Pacific , and shares that his nickname arose from having the relatively safe job of cook on an LST.
Fred tells Lucky a story about how after the Marines secured a beach, the locals began to commit suicide by jumping off cliffs. In the mayhem of battle, he encountered a young girl, smiling amidst all the carnage.
Fred wondered how she could smile in the midst of all that misery and death. He later learned that the girl was a Buddhist and was smiling at the prospect of being killed.
The story leaves Lucky speechless. Upon returning home, Lucky sets the clock on his coffee machine to the correct time to stop the blinking.
He attends Bibi's son Juan's birthday party and comes to enjoy having company. He spontaneously sings " Volver Volver " in Spanish for the party goers.
That evening, Lucky goes back to the bar for more Bloody Marias. Howard has not found his tortoise yet, and concludes that all things must eventually come to an end.
Lucky then attempts to light a cigarette at the bar despite being ordered not to do so by the owner, Elaine.
He delivers a speech to the bar patrons that everything goes away eventually and that we are left with nothing. Elaine asks what is one supposed to do with nothing.
Lucky simply replies "you smile". The remark transforms the mood of the bar; Lucky lights up his cigarette and steps outside.
The next morning, Lucky wakes up and goes through his usual routine of yoga and drinking a glass of cold milk. He goes for a walk through town, as he always does, and passes by the outdoor botanic garden and bar where he was previously banned for public smoking.
In the desert, Lucky lights up a cigarette, and looks up at a tall and imposing cactus in bloom. He breaks the fourth wall and smiles as he begins his walk back into town.
As Lucky heads down the desert path alone, a tortoise trudges across the path from one end to the other before disappearing into the desert bushes.
On July 7, , it was revealed that Lucky had begun filming in Los Angeles. On April 7, , it was announced that Magnolia Pictures acquired U. The website's critical consensus reads, " Lucky is a bittersweet meditation on mortality, punctuating the career of beloved character actor Harry Dean Stanton.
Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert. The humblest deep movie of recent years, a work in the same vein as American marginalia like ' Stranger Than Paradise ' and ' Trees Lounge ,' but with its own rhythm and color, its own emotional temperature, its own reasons for revealing and concealing things.
Seitz later named Lucky as the best film of , stating that "I didn't expect much more than indie-film quirk when I read the description of this film, but emotionally it destroyed me.
Stanton is Lucky a living 90 year old man who's probably at the end of the tunnel despite okay health. And you guessed it he's set in his ways especially with the belief that he doesn't want to face death or he's not too set on the believe of a higher power.
Living in the southwest Lucky's days are spent walking, and going to the local bar and diner to drink and he passes his time during the day after getting up working puzzles and watching game shows.
Plus he even smokes some weed with a new African American female friend. And the chats and visits with locals and friends help Lucky move along.
Still thru it all this old man is set in his ways he who doesn't want new acceptance or change in which he fears in his small town life it's a long last reflection on life and being who he is.
The supporting cast is well rounded here with David Lynch, Ed Begley Jr. Overall well done film of one looking at their life and surroundings and coming to terms with time and reflection without change.
