Brigsby Bear: The Lost Episode
Posted on August 10, 2017 at 3:54 pm
Kyle Mooney’s “Brigsby Bear” is an endearing story about a man who learns in his 20’s that his “parents” have been lying to him all his life, about everything. He believes the entire world has been contaminated and they live in a shelter to protect themselves from toxic radiation. He also believes they are his parents. And his primary contact with the outside world is through a children’s television show called “Brigsby Bear.” But it turns out they kidnapped him and his “father” (Mark Hamill) created the show just for him. Part of the charm of the film is the low-tech “show” that Mooney’s character is determined to finish.
Mooney has released an excerpt from the imaginary show, inspired by 70’s television and Teddy Ruxpin.
