the Opportunity to watch a movie in the cinema was provided by the international author's cinema festival "Clique Fest", which began 9 November its 7-day operation. Hall has been filled up to failure!

Let's face it, few people familiar with the name "Harry Dean Stanton." I remember the name soon as I looked "Stranger". It hero was lucky enough to be the first one killed the grown alien. I admit that not familiar with a filmography of the actor. But I can write that he was insanely catchy characteristic actor. Where he went immediately recognize it slim, laid-back look and serious face.

Writer Logan sparks calls the film "the Lucky one" "love letter, Harry Dean Stanton." For the first time they met on the set of TV show "Big love" when sparks was responsible to bring to take away the actor. Stanton invited the assistant in his trailer to smoke, then — party. "He always said, Logan we work together. For him we were the same age". 15 years later, Stanton was witness the wedding of Logan, who named his son in honor of a friend.

"Lucky" — is both a tribute to Swan song and a sad note. So what a simple movie under the beer get to see, even though it was filmed for 18 days. The film and asks than "Paterson," which was I scanned a year ago same festival. Shown is the usual routine 90-year-old man, coy not years of vigorous and active. Yoga, crosswords, TV shows, bar, conversations with people. Thoughts of imminent death.

Though Stanton and kept working, starring in more than 200 films and TV shows for his 60-year career in  the"Lucky" he played a major role for the first time since the time of "Paris, Texas" (1984). Stanton knew that could get a different career after the release of this film. He said "could I would be much richer and more famous than want".

A region of the brain can even see here a parable of loneliness about aging, when I feel that the hour is at hand. But to spit. It is the entire movie is about Harry Dean Stanton. He — king around his entourage, which also David Lynch. By the way, Lynch not change itself. With him the amusing story of the turtle. Have you the opportunity to really say goodbye to an actor. It's amazing that he died right after this film.

Also Stanton admitted to sparks that was surrounded by producers, who offered him the whole world on a platter after the "repo man" and"Paris, Texas". "The producers asked me more money, more girls and more fame than I could present. In the depths of the soul I felt it's a deal with the devil. So I turned all of this".

It was like he knew there is unfinished business. Despite that Harry Dean Stanton in the frame is similar to the withered mummy, he still makes everything nice and clear. I love movies like in which show small-town America, this, that Lee. Not new York and Los Angeles, and those places where Americans live. The image of Stanton — is the embodiment of traditional American with conservative principles and a desire to remain on their land.

Stanton, who was healthy work on "Lucky", fought with the infection several months before dying. At least for them were leaving, the actor was preparing for the death. "We continue to believe that it appears on the premiere. He had not seen the final version of the film, but I managed to show the trailer, the scene with Lynch the last scene. Him like".

In the end, Harry Dean Stanton breaks the fourth wall and after scrutiny of the giant cactus stares in the camera. This glance pierces instantly. Without another word, he goodbye us who will ever see this movie. Without words any sudden movements. Only a glance. &Nbsp;smile. A warm smile, saying that we all die once, but let's not think about her while living. To live life as Harry Dean Stanton? Why Yes. Bless world.

Harry Dean Stanton plays a sort of loose version of himself in as a bachelor and an atheist who continuously smokes, walking around in underwear, daily doing yoga and watching game shows. Philosophy of life Stanton is reflected in the film. "He was a deeply spiritual person who 100% were sure there is no God but instead — only emptiness. Believed that we all disappear in oblivion — says Lynch. — He is deeply adhered to this worldview".

P. s. Inveterate bachelor Harry Dean Stanton in the early 80s met with actress Rebecca De of Morna, who was considered the love of my life. In principle, include Nastassja Kinski Deborah Harry.

Do you know the name Harry Dean Stanton? Hardly. But visually you it, probably, learn. Learn the first, the casual and minor roles in such cult films as "the Godfather II", "Alien", "the Green mile", "twin Peaks", "Inland Empire" and"Fear and hatred in Las Vegas". Total Hollywood survivor, which the community was named actor of "stealing the stage", due to his charisma and ability to briefly distract the audience from the main narrative with its bright appearance in the frame took part in more than 150 movie projects and television and very rarely he had to play the main roles: the last one was the 1984 film "Paris, Texas". Stanton not began with September 2017 at 92 year of life, shortly before beginning of the release of the film "Lucky", in which grandpa finally was awarded the role of the first plan. This work was the directorial debut for actor John Carroll Lynch, not have family ties with great terrible David Lynch, who also paid tribute to movie namesake with his presence.

The story of a lonely ninety-year-old man by the nickname of Lucky, in essence, is the history of the Harry Dean Stanton, who participated in the Second world war, never been married, not had children and didn't become a big star at this having lived a long, full of interesting meetings and intersection of life first with great artists from the world of cinema. Despite that "Lucky" with one side looks like a tribute to the honored artist, its Swan song, which blends in with a memorial service, with the other is an attempt to focus attention on such unpopular topics in film as old the prospect of imminent death in the form of a philosophical parable. The film is filled with savoring the last days of life of the elderly person, conversations on different everyday topics and funny situations. But still most of the characters concerned with the topic of eternal rest, on the mouth of the old man's unwavering naturally declare the Buddhist attitude to its adoption: "the Fear of the inevitability does not make sense, if it and is destined to leave, make it is with smiling face".

Final scene huge cactus, which is Lucky so hard consider, and then, breaking the fourth wall stares intently in the camera tears eyes a sad smile, already has nothing to do with artwork, and is a documentary fixation as Harry Dean Stanton looking for greater glory, which he and felt on the height, which is so and remained for him unattainable. Sad.
