The Disaster Artist

James Franco directs and gives a Golden Globe-winning performance in this behind-the-scenes look at Tommy Wiseau's cult phenomenon The Room. Based on the memoir of The Room co-star Greg Sestero, and starring Dave Franco, Ari Graynor and Seth Rogen alongside a bevy of star-studded cameos.

A tribute to the joy and madness of making movies, The Disaster Artist follows the outrageous adventures of eccentric filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and his best friend, actor Greg Sestero. These two endearing misfits move to L.A. and try to live the Hollywood dream by making their very own feature film, but end up embarking on a wildly unpredictable and hilariously unforgettable production. Leading to one of the most infamous, bizarre, and beloved midnight movies of all time, The Room.

Surprisingly good.

It's both funny and interesting; with terrific performances and an emotional tale.

Quirky tale of a true outsider

I am sure there are a million stories out there about talentless people who have such strong self belief ( and plenty of cash) that they somehow achieve some sort of greatness. Tommy Wiseau lives in a separate reality that allows him to believe he is a movie mogul and acting great. His money allowed him to pull in a team to help him make his film. James...

"They're all goning to laugh at you!"

I dream of turning all my alienation and insecurities into some tangible body of work. Anyway... "This is the review they'll remember me for".

A real surprise

Fans of the The Room or people that have knowledge of the film (I fall into the latter category) will know what they are getting into regarding the humour of this film. But one thing you don't expect is the humanity of the film, propped up by the transformative James Franco performance as Tommy Wiseau. This gets a strong recommendation from me.

Snatching hilarity from disaster

I first saw THE ROOM at midnight, in a packed cinema and I’ll never forget the hail of spoons raining down on the screen, or the entire audience crying out as one: “I did nat hit her. I did naaaaaaat!” Ahh, THE ROOM. Tommy Wiseau’s hugely expensive home movie project. Part disastrous, so bad it’s fun, PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE mess, part crowd pleasing cult...

It may soon join Tim Burton's Ed Wood in the ranks of great movies about terrible movies.

[Boasts] a genuine capacity to delight, whether or not the audiences in question have seen "The Room."

Know that you're in for a movie that flogs its fan service so vigorously (forget about a wink - this is a squint), it barely remembers to be anything more than a mildly weird story of friendship and betrayal. Maybe that's all it needs to be.

The dazzle of the cast and the targeted in-jokes never take away from the film's core messaging about the importance of believing in one's own ability as an artist.

It feels like an insider's movie where the guys who've succeeded in making it inside have a good laugh at those who haven't.

... as actor Paul Scheer said at The Disaster Artist's Toronto Film Festival premiere, "it's the perfect prequel for those who've never seen The Room and the perfect sequel for those who have".
