Edinburgh Int’l Film Festival 2013: Lunarcy!

Titular puns and punctuation marks included, Lunarcy! establishes a kind of informal register before it’s even begun. Opening with the quotation, “You don’t have to be tall to see the moon”, it makes a virtue of smalltown idiosyncrasies and is celebratory of an outsider status (fittingly, it’s a Canadian production) by lending a cinematic platform to a few people whose fascination with our Moon goes well beyond expectation, and whose grand designs doggedly and amusingly belie the utter impracticability of their vision.
