HenriqueA's rating of the film Brigsby Bear

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.
