Title: THE DISATER ARTIST (2017)
Post by: Rev. Powell on March 16, 2017, 02:35:22 PM
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.
