People tend to react in one of two ways to 'Like Crazy,' the Sundance-approved long-distance-relationship saga that Paramount is billing as something like the second coming of 'Love Story.' ("Love means never having to renew your visa"?) Some viewers experience a Kleenex-obliterating sense memory of what it felt like to be young, naïve, hopelessly in love, and separated from one's object of desire by circumstances beyond one's control; others check out emotionally as soon as they decide that these two idiot kids brought all their troubles on themselves. I fall decidedly into the former camp, so I jumped at the chance to interview the film's 28-year-old director, Drake Doremus, who shot the movie with no script and $250,000. He shared a few gory details about the long-distance relationship(s) that inspired the film, and even offered some advice for those foolish enough to attempt one in real life.
