I have seen The Room probably somewhere between 7 or 8 times in my life. I have read the Disaster Artist book in which Greg Sestero recounts his life and his days on the set of the movie. I have been waiting for this movie for a long time. If your not sure what The Room is I will explain more below, first here is the trailer for The Disaster Artist starring James Franco, Dave Franco, and Seth Rogen.
In short this is a movie about what went on in the lives of these people during the making of The Room. Oh and Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero’s strange friendship.
What is The Room?
“The Citizen Kane of bad movies”. A number of publications have labeled it as one of the worst films ever made. Originally shown only in a limited number of California theaters, The Room quickly became a cult film due to its bizarre and unconventional storytelling and various technical and narrative flaws. Although Wiseau has retrospectively characterized the film as a black comedy, audiences have generally viewed it as a poorly-made drama, a viewpoint supported by some of the film’s cast.
While you wait for The Disaster Artist to come out during award season I highly suggest you watch The Room. The watch it again. And a few more times, and try to understand the enigma that is Tommy Wiseau.
