A masterpiece on life and death. I burst into tears.

A funny and poignant meditation on old age starring Harry Dean Stanton in his last film. It's a fitting tribute to the great man.

Grandiosa, el papel de Harry Dean Stanton fue maravilloso, a sus 91 años nos dejó una despedida espléndida gracias a John Carroll Lynch. Es una historia sobre la vida, sobre llegar al final y empezar a mirar hacia atrás, es una historia llena de experiencias y de vida.

A truly touching film that the late, great acted to perfection. great story line that'll bring serious feels to all but the most jaded. If you're deep into years it'll bring a serious gut check.

Lovely little movie not really about anything but entertaining just the same.

It's like Harry Dean Stanton path was supposed to end with this poetic and touching piece of art.

Quirky but not saccharin, Lucky is remarkably frank and profound in its ruminations on death and acceptance.

The final film of the late, great Harry Dean Stanton, and I can't think of a more fitting film to go out on than this poignant comedy about life, regret, and the acceptance of death

Harry Dean Stanton's farewell is sweet and insightful, and even though it may feel pretentious at times, its lead keeps it solid enough.

The song he sings is great moment. Lynch is a terrible actor

It will probably not be recent enough to be remembered come Oscar time. which is terribly sad. Character actor John Carroll Lynch does a masterful job in his directorial debut, and Harry Dean Stanton deserves a posthumous award nod for his final role, which may also be one of his finest.

This is a sorry, wayward tale of a senile social misfit that does little else but jump from one loosely linked anecdote to the next. It's approach is insincere, being grossly overacted emotional porn. There is no genuine exploration of the process of growing old, just hollow tear jerking.

If you are a cinemaphile, you will have nothing but raves about this movie, and friends so afflicted encouraged our viewing. As the director said in an interview, it started out as a set of vignettes, and that is how it remains. It provides an opportunity for a series of actors to provide a series of soliloquies (some impressive, some not so much) on a range of disparate topics, but often related to thoughts on aging (but then there are also tortoises). The daily plodding routines of an old man in a small town really is not much to build a story around, and this is the case, with lots of unanswered questions, non-sequiters, and huh??s. But as remarked above, I suspect many will find artistic charm, and others... when will this be over?

Really good film anchored by beautiful performance by Stanton!

Do not be deceived by the film's positive reviews, although they may hold some merit, what you can expect are a few laughs, and should you find yourself asleep, you'll wake up not missing a thing. This work felt rushed and like a very rough draft of a film. The film easily could be made into a great preview to save you your time. If one could ask for a refund after viewing the whole movie I would. Get this film from your library or rent it should you choose to view it.

Lucky is an excellent directorial debut by the actor John Carroll Lynch and an example of how great a movie can be without many arcs ou sub-plot, quality doesn't mean quanty, "less is more". The legendary actor Harry Dean Stanton, despite his final years, gives one of his finest performances and leaves this world in a high-note. The actor prooved to be great still at his 90 years and sings like nobody else. One of the best male characters and performances of 2017! It's a slow, yet great, funny and reflexive movie!

Harry Dean Stanton's last performance and film are a masterpiece. Harry plays Lucky, a eighty-something healthy man who one day falls. That is basically the plot. Lucky goes through practically the same routine every day. Lunch at the diner, a quick trip to the local convenience store, a drink at his favorite watering hole. David Lynch, Beth Grant, Tom Skeritt, and a cast of character actors fill out the phenomenal cast. In fact, that one scene between Tom Skeritt and Harry Dean Stanton could carry a whole film with its eye for the detail of the mundane and how life passes by.

This is just an excellent film ! Great characters, living in an unexpected place, wonderful dialogues, genuine situations echoing real human feelings snf emotions, focusing on things that matter to all, clear cut, subtly directed, with an exhilarating Stanton saying his last goodbye with a potently moving smile to the camera. An absolute must-see -film
massively acclaimed in the recent international Thessaloniki film festival
(3-12 Nov).
