Directed by John Carroll Lynch
2017, USA, 88 min

Veteran character actor Harry Dean Stanton gives the performance of his career in this beautifully made story of a man facing old age. His daily routine involves yoga exercises, afternoon TV and a full pack of smokes. It’s impossible to take your eyes off Stanton: in his performance you see history, both that of his character and that of an actor with a lifetime of excellence behind him. It’s a movie of superb monologues: David Lynch on the loss of his pet tortoise, James Darren on the redemptive power of love and Stanton on the meaning of life and death. Watch this one for a chance to see characters that sparkle, and for a long, loving look at one of America’s great performers.

Reviews

An outstanding comedy… Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought him to his moment of triumph.
- Joe Leydon, Variety
