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.
