FILM NUT - SPECIAL - a conversation with John Carroll Lynch
John Carroll Lynch has had his directorial debut with LUCKY, starring Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch and Beth Grant.
LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having outlived 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. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut, "Lucky", is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
Kerre Cole met up with John Carroll Lynch to talk about the film, the process and some of the symbolism within.
