"It's hard to describe how bad the acting in The Room is.” – Don Willmott, Filmcritic.com
“Everything about the movie is bad, such that the whole experience feels like an elaborate slice of Dadaist genius.”– The Capitol Hill Times
“The Room is the Citizen Kane of bad movies.” – Ross Morin, Prof. of Film Studies, St. Cloud State University
The Room is a cinematic experience unlike anything you have ever seen – an electrifying, soul-searing explosion of love, passion, betrayal and lies, starring the truly unique writer/director Tommy Wiseau as Johnny, a successful, happy-go-lucky banker with a great job, cool friends and even a girlfriend he hopes will someday be “The One.” But wait! Cruel fate is lurking around every corner, and before you can say “Oh, hi doggie!,” drugs, deception, soft-core sex and a cheating heart begin to unravel Johnny’s life. Our hero is soon trapped by vicious betrayals from everyone around him and he must find a way out before he is torn apart! The ultimate cinematic car crash from which you will definitely NOT want to look away, The Room is a cult sensation that is hilariously awful and borderline surreal in ways that can only be explained by sheer artistic madness. From its gloriously wooden dialogue to its bizarre green screen depiction of San Francisco to its unsettling obsession with spoons, footballs and breast cancer, The Room is a film so deeply insane it must be seen to be disbelieved. (Dir. by Tommy Wiseau, 2003, USA, 99 mins., Rated R) Digital
