- ‘Brigsby Bear’ Review: ‘SNL’ Team Crafts Amusing, Sincere Paean to Pop-Culture Captivity

Not only are their favorite stories being administered regularly by the major studios, dominating multiplexes and displacing a more varied mainstream cinema, their inner psychologies are now being examined in indie movies and documentaries.“Saturday Night Live” writer-director Dave McCary’s feature debut “Brigsby Bear” — which stars fellow “SNL” colleague Kyle Mooney — is one such ode to community born of obsession (and, to some extent, placating that obsession).On first glance, the series plays like a cross between a Tim & Eric cable-access goof and a home video from the imagined hallucinogen-inspired files of Sid & Marty Krofft.James’s attention-grabbing passion — new installments of which arrive on VHS tape every week — stars a heroic intergalactic talking bear with twin females for companions; an angry-faced, hovering orb called Sunsnatcher for an antagonist; and lessons in math, science and morality that don’t pertain to the usual educational TV standards.While James remains outwardly calm as the supervising detective (Greg Kinnear) and a friendly therapist (Claire Danes) help introduce him to his birth parents (Matt Walsh and Michaela Watkins) and new sister (Ryan Simpkins, “The House”), James is most rattled by the revelation that there won’t be any more “Brigsby” episodes.Casting fandom icon Hamill is as winking as it gets on that front.) If fusing literal and figurative abduction sounds wryly funny to you, you might laugh at the awkward humor McCary and Mooney (who co-wrote with Kevin Costello) wring from James’s hesitant acclimation to people, outside air, and what to do about an all-consuming space narrative cut short (albeit after 736 episodes.Though not as oddball inventive or naturally whimsical as Michel Gondry’s homage circus “Be Kind Rewind,” its low-gear celebration of fandom-inspired ingenuity, and belief in the power of creating as a reparative balm, earns it enough well-deserved smiles when things fall predictably into place in the latter stages.Mooney, who seems to relish a deadpan delivery that fuses ambitious positivity and cluelessness, does a fine job leading this alt-schmaltz brigade, and nicely underplays the movie’s most layered scene, in which James seeks out the woman (the great Kate Lyn Shiel, “House of Cards”) who played the twins in the video loop of his childhood, and discovers a waitress making ends meet.
