When many think of Harry Dean Stanton there are many things and many films people point to. Some immediately shout Alien! because we love horror. Some shout Pretty In Pink because we love John Hughes films. Some shout Avengers because he had that random scene. Some shout Paris, Texas, because he’s just enough for us to love most anything. The one universal truth is no matter how large or small a part Harry Dean Staton found ways to stand out.
Lucky is the film that feels like a warm hug that we want to give all of our beloved character actors. We know we love them, we want to see more of them and at the same time we’re almost happy with the limited time that we’ve gotten to spend time with them.
