The Most Original Movie I've Seen in A While
4 June 2018 | by mikodcSee all my reviews

Brigsby Bear is one of the most creative and original movies I've seen.

The performance by Kyle Mooney was great and it didn't feel like some SNL sketch kind of acting and story.

It's also great to note that the supporting cast in this movie is also good not only for their acting but also purpose and relativity.
