David Stratton Recommends

Cannes Critics' Week's Closing film is a strange, wonderful comedy starring Saturday Night Live's Kyle Mooney as a man obsessed with a TV show about a bear saving the world.

James (Mooney) has lived in a bunker for 25 years, completely isolated from the world. His only contact is with his parents (Mark Hamill and Jane Adams), and his only source of entertainment and education is the '80s-style television show 'Brigsby Bear Adventures'. James's life is drastically changed when he leaves the bunker and has to integrate into society: a task for which he is completely unprepared. Most disturbing of all, James can no longer watch his beloved TV show. In order to make sense of his life, James will need to bring Brigsby Bear back into it. With a great cast including Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes and Andy Samberg, Brigsby Bear is an affirming, offbeat love letter to filmmaking.

Mooney has perfected the sweet naiveté of youth, and his earnest portrayal of a man who grew up in isolation mines big laughs without any trace of condescension or cynicism. There's a genuine sweetness to his performance, and the entire movie, that smartly wards off any accusations of ironic hipster posing. – Geoff Berkshire, Variety

Sweet indie drama, briefly disguised as something like a Michel Gondry apocalyptic-future film. – Tasha Robinson, The Verge
