    This film tells the story of a young man who grew up with a television show about a bear.

    The story quickly unfolds to a surprising path, and it is very engaging and emotional. It is a sweet tale of a young man finding his way in a new world, and the immense support he receives around him. The film could have taken a dark and depressing tone, but instead it keeps a light tone most of the time, with serious scenes inserted at the right intervals. It is a very heart warming story.

    "Curiosity is an unnatural emotion." "Trust only the familial unit." Brigsby Bear

    Such are the odd exhortations of a fictional bear, in a fictional TV program made especially for James (Kyle Mooney) by his abductor "father" (Mark Hamill), a successful toy inventor. After 25 years of a hermetically sealed environment, James is freed to discover a non-Brigsby world that cares not for eccentricity.

    Brigsby Bear is a film full of charm, odd though it is, that reveals the sweet side of creativity with its difficulties and disappointments. Once James's real parents get him back after all those years, the process bleeding from the creativity and imagination he has been preparing for over the 25 years.

    James's need to finish the Brigsby episodes, which have already given him a lifetime of perspective on bravery and eccentricity, makes his the alien initially until a chum of his sister begins to realize the genius behind the goofy TV show. The spirit of creativity catches on slowly with family and more rapidly for friends.

    Mooney's work on Saturday Night Live sometimes acting as a child, along with first-time helmer Dave McCary, helps the hero keep a youthful point of view and an innocence that works well with the story's turn as a caution about persecuting outsiders before you know who they are and what stuff they are made of.

    Perhaps the most singular virtue of this indie is lack of pretension and condescension about James's naiveté and creative gifts. It plays it all straight to salutary effect.

    Reviewing a film like "Brigsby Bear" is very difficult in the manner by which I review films because it is important to me to keep my reviews as spoiler-free as possible. That being said, understand that my take here will be at a "10,000-foot level," meaning that I have to tell you as little as possible about the film itself to keep its integrity intact.

    Kyle Mooney has written the script (along with Kevin Costello) and plays James Pope, who lives in the desert with Ted (Mark Hamill) and April (Jane Adams). He spends most of his time watching his favorite show, "Brigsby Bear," a children's program that has captured his imagination for his entire life. When the show is cancelled out of nowhere, James decides to take it upon himself to finish Brigsby's story.

    This is such a different kind of film that it was refreshing to me. Mooney, who is known in the current "SNL" cast for playing kooky, off- beat kinds of characters, channels those talents here and gives James a fun innocence that a character like this requires as the film progresses. His character's journey to fulfill his dream of closure and completion is well told in a way that hit me where I lived one moment, had me laughing out loud the next, and rooting for him in the moment after that. There is a great supporting cast here as well, but to talk too much about them will give away too much of the heart of this film.

    It truly is important to go into "Brigsby Bear" as cold as you possibly can, avoiding any Internet spoilers in any way, shape, or form in order to truly enjoy its story as a whole. Once you see it and enjoy it, also do everyone else a favor and let them experience it in the same spoiler-free manner that hopefully you did as well.

    2017 has been quite great and it's looking really promising, but THIS, this is definitely one of its finest gems.

    Brigsby Bear is a celebration of passion, and how amazing sharing that passion with other people truly is, finding that one person who understands your love for something. Personally, I related a lot with that aspect of the film.

    However, there's this other side of this film: a really interesting psychological study on how the socialization process has a prominent role on a person's life, and how it determines one's identity. In my opinion, looking this particular film through that lens it is truly captivating despite its few inconsistencies.

    Regarding plot and characters, this is very solid. The performances were mostly really good, the standouts being Kyle Mooney as James Pope and Mark Hamill in one of his best performances in years, both vocally and acting wise. And last but not least, this movie contains one of the most hilarious scene I've ever seen in a movie, seriously, I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.

    As for flaws, Michaela Watkins's terrible performance, especially in some crucial emotional scenes, was quite distracting, and some questionable aspects regarding the main themes of the movie also detracted from the experience at times..

    Overall, I loved this film and as far as I'm concerned, I got a great experience out of a movie that I didn't even know what to expect, and it was awesome. Truly recommend it.
