Paving the way for an entirely new type of non-fiction filmmaking, Leviathan is set entirely on board a fishing vessel off the coast of New England, and captures the brutality of sea life in refreshing, breathtaking fashion. Cameras are seemingly everywhere, capturing every minute detail from every possible vantage point, creating less of a narrative than a total immersive experience.

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.
