Lucky Man: The Future Looks Bright for Orbach by Frederik Sisa
Orbach does land a well-struck blow; good filming technique, good cast, the whole shebang. The future’s looking bright for this new filmmaker.
SPIKE DVD REVIEW
Ruvin Orbach’s Lucky Man demonstrates an easy flair for gritty humor and quirky characters. There’s also a flavorful, zesty mosaic of old and new faces stirred into the mix, including vets like Sopranos wise guys Frank Vincent and Vincent Pastore.
Lucky Man is paved with richly drawn offbeat personalities and finely crafted storytelling.
It’s a pretty brilliant exercise in style by writer-director Ruvin Orbach, who has come closer to exactly recreating the looks and sounds of a cheap crime thriller from the mid-’70s with his little indie than any major studio effort.

Orbach delivers smart dialogue and surprisingly complex character development
