    Lucky Bastard is a bold little thriller — and deft cautionary tale.

    The film is most successful when humanizing the people behind the objectification, with lives beyond the smut.

    The performances, especially from the bed partners, are complex; even if you weren’t wanting for an exposé of adult-entertainment violence, here it is.

    In the end, considering the numerous ways the film goes limp, it seems credibility still eludes the found-footage genre.

    Robert Nathan’s Lucky Bastard is a sorry-looking found-footage thriller as unconvincing as its characters’ thrashing orgasms.

    A new low for found-footage films, Lucky Bastard uses a porno shoot as the stage for a thriller with little mystery and lots of pointless moralizing.

    Lucky Bastard mostly combines the worst of all worlds: the less-clever-than-it-thinks script of old-school porn, the piercing brightness and flatness of video production, an especially lackluster rendering of the played-out found-footage horror concept.
