I wasn't too excited for this film about the making of THE ROOM, but I'm getting up for it after reading this article that says that the early screening was a huge success. The writer suggests it may be as big a hit as ED WOOD, meaning Oscar nominations (for James Franco as Tommy Wiseau, presumably).

I highly recommend reading the book, if you haven't. It's a weird, but workable, blend of novel, biography, and auto-biography.  I had no idea there was a movie being made. I am intrigued.

This is one of those strangely concatenated situations.  A very poorly made film gets a dramatized making-of film, where a good actor plays a bad actor.  It's so bizarre.  I feel like I'm reading some self-reflexive postmodern treatise about the medium being the message.

The title of the movie is actually THE DISASTER ARTIST, not THE DISATER ARTIST. How very Wiseau of me!

A question: do you have to have seen The Room before seeing this? The Room has never been released locally.  Question

This popped up in my feed today.

Impossible to tell how this will play out but I saw Greg/Mark at a reading of The Disaster Artist and he, and the excerpt he read, was hilarious so that's a good start.

Yup, that is exactly how I envisioned the shoot going for that movie. I hope this flick doesn't stink.

You might try the audiobook, read by the author.  He knows Tommy very well, and I enjoy his approximation of his accent.
