The Room (2003)

"Crowned by Entertainment Weekly as the 'Citizen Kane of Bad Movies'... It's a $US7 million vanity project created by a cheerful narcissist named Tommy Wiseau, who’s like a muscle-bound, European version of Gene Simmons. No matter what you’ve already heard, nothing can prepare you for the once-in-a-lifetime big-screen experience of seeing actor/director/producer Wiseau mumbling his way through this excruciating love triangle about a kind-hearted banker, his best friend and his cheating bride-to-be. It has many unforgettable scenes, but keep your eyes peeled for pictures of spoons, close football tossing, characters vanishing and emerging and even one that announces 'I definitely have breast cancer' as a throwaway conversation starter. Unmissable." (Incredibly Strange 2010)

Unlikely as it may seem, an independently-made, self-distributed movie has rolled into town, sans film festival pedigree or advance buzz, but armed with an ad campaign that includes billboards along Sunset Boulevard, television spots and a glossy, commemorative book on the movie's making. "The Room" marks the writing-directing-acting debut of Tommy Wiseau, who's not just one of the most unusual looking and sounding (with an unidentifiable Eastern European accent) leading men ever to grace the screen, but a narcissist nonpareil whose movie makes Vincent Gallo's "The Brown Bunny" seem the apotheosis of cinematic self-restraint.
