Tommy Wiseau is an actor, writer and filmmaker, who made the cult hit film The Room, which has screened in Los Angeles since 2003. The film is about a love triangle between a man, his fiance, and his best friend. While some call the film melodramatic, Wiseau promotes the film as a black comedy. —http://www.mahalo.com/tommy-wiseau
Red is a prominent colour in The Room, from Lisa's red dress, to the dozen red roses Johnny buys and ravishes her with, red is especially protuberant during the love scenes; the bedroom is decorated with red walls, red sheets, red candles and more. Its use represents rage and passion, lust and hatred, a sort of romantic ambivalence. It is also a symbol of unknowing betrayal which climaxes in Johnny's ultimate bloody Christ-like sacrifice. Perhaps the most interesting use the colour the film is during the very firsts scene of the film after Denny appears as Lisa and Johnny prepare for a bout of sweaty passionate sex. Denny takes a bite of a red apple before joining the couple upstairs, this may seem insignificant at first but it is quite clearly and allegory for the forbidden fruit in The Garden of Eden which triggers the initial fall from grace for all characters, this is possibly mirrored by Mark's succumbing to temptation with Lisa. Wiseau's subtle use of colour symbolism is only a small puzzle piece in his complex, multi-layered labyrinth of a film.
The Room is a true marvel of bad movies (a film essentially made up of pointless and unfulfilled scenes). It transcends boredom and description, it is an enigma, a thing of great mystery and humor, so bizarre yet so humble, it can only be the work of a true genius, or a mad man, or maybe both. And for that Wiseau, I thank you. "You are tearing me apart The Auteurs!"
