One of the most overlooked film of the year (thanks to the misleading title that made people wrongfully assumed this as a Children Movie, I guess?). A film so pure and earnest, just like the character played by Kyle Mooney (which, if there's justice in the world, should have been mentioned in every awards conversation this year).
DOPE AS SHIT! It's not perfect and it dodged a lot of Sundance Clichés™ by an inch, but it is the best 2017 film about making films and one of the rare times where comedians take dramatic roles with measured confidence and no overacting. Mooney's commitment to the part takes this would be Gondry leftover to some amazing emotional and comedic heights. I wouldn't mind if it went on for another hour.
This came out of left field as one of the most life-affirming and heartwarming films I've seen in 2017. Kyle Mooney is hilarious and endearing as a brainwashed ex-captive who follows his dreams with the verve of a delusional child. His passion inevitably inspires all the characters around him and the audience as a whole. Can't recommend this enough.
Cual Quijote, luego de tantos relatos ficticios, un hombre es liberado al mundo real y emprende su propia historia. A diferencia de la novela de caballería, el héroe de "Brigsby Bear" no recibe el nivel de humillación del caballero andante. McCary promueve un mundo que se abre a la imaginación, contagiados por la afición o por simple compasión. Aquí hay muchos Sancho Panza.
