In this episode we're talking about Lucky, the directorial debut from the very familiar faced John Carroll Lynch (Fargo, Zodiac) and the final performance of the late, great Harry Dean Stanton.
Lucky follows the spiritual journey of Harry Dean Stanton’s character Lucky, a cantankerous, self-reliant 90 year old atheist, and the quirky characters that inhabit the Arizona town where he lives. 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.
John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut also stars Ron Livingston (The Conjuring, Swingers, Office Space), Ed Begley Jr. (St. Elsewhere), Tom Skerritt (Alien, Top Gun, Contact), and director David Lynch (no introduction necessary).
Discussing the film are Sam Howlett, Kelly Powell, Ryan Hewitt and first time podder Mark Towers.
Once upon a time he was personal assistant to Harry Dean Stanton, now he's the writer of the actor’s final film, Lucky...
Logan Sparks joins us at Curzon Soho this Saturday 15 September at 6pm to talk about the late, forever great Stanton, and the lighting of his final on-screen cigarette.
