Lunatics is a great example of how you can tell a sensitive, funny, crazy story with two basic sets. You can have not the millions of Spielberg, but you can make a good movie with a good story.
The day every time in Hollywood come back from nonsense to senses, they realize that is a guy named Josh Becker, the director of this movie. Becker's films are really clever, funny, and change something in you. I am his fan from that night some years ago when I see "Lunatics" in TV.
Then I did think he was some Sam Raimi sidekick, but NO. Becker is the original thing, he's real real, and love the cinema how nobody more in the world. If you is a wannabe of filmmaker go to his site and read his manifesto, "Dogma 2006". He's our great hope for better movies. Becker's better.
