Samuel Wells's rating of the film Lunacy

To say that the film is difficult to watch is an understatement. The narrative twists and turns, but is one of the easier aspects to the film. The sound to the film is a challenge. The most off putting aspect though were the visual asides that did not have a connection to the plot. This absurdism does have its appeal, but it did not work for me in this film. The film felt like a mess, but not in a good way.
