Panda Bear It ★★

“Do you wanna make history or his story?”

Panda Bear It tackles some important and meaningful issues surrounding grief and depression that are always welcomed by me for cinematic exploration. The metaphors are rich and intriguing with a unique protagonist who has an equally unique comedic partner. Panda is an awesome character that makes for an immediately striking image. The character allows for some terrific moments of levity which I wish we got to see more of in the film. While the acting and production is sometimes faulted by being an independent and low-budget effort, it has its moments and is an admirable work.
