Eccentrics and astronauts obsessed with the Moon are profiled in this well-shot documentary. Attempting to fly to the Moon, paint works of art about the Moon, or selling plots of land on the Moon; these people dedicate their lives to the Moon in one way or another with varying degrees of success. Lunarcy! pokes some fun at these characters, but it doesn't seem particularly mean-spirited. The film has a bitter-sweet, uplifting ending which essentially says, "Hey, if you want to go to the Moon, go. You probably won't be able to, because it's like, you know, in outer space and it often requires specialized training, a rocket and probably a trillion dollars; but knock yourself out. What's the harm in trying?", which seems ok to me.
