The title of this goofy documentary, which examines an eclectic group of individuals all connected by their unyielding obsession with the moon, really says it all. In Lunarcy!, we meet a man pedaling a 30-year-old book about future life on the moon, another who claims to own the moon, and a third who works tirelessly to achieve his ultimate dream of living on the moon. Director Simon Ennis is much kinder to his subjects than many others might be, which is what makes this film as endearing as its unusual characters.
