Originally marketed as a serious drama "with the spirit of Tennessee Williams, The Room was such a spectacular failure in all aspects that it achieved ‘so bad it’s good’ cult status and now is advertised as “black comedy” due to the unintentionally hilarious nature of the film.
An American black comedy about love and passion, betrayal and lies. It depicts the depths of friendship and relationships in one’s life and raises life’s real and most asked question: “Can you ever really trust anyone?…Are you ready to see reflections of your life?” A successful banker, Johnny, is madly in love with his fiancé, Lisa, and plans to be married next month. His plans take a horrid turn when he finds the truth about Lisa and the people surrounding him.
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
I seriously love this film -- real love, not the ironic hipster bullshit. It's such an awful piece of cinema, but it's also so delighful, entertaining (if you are really into movies) and a true labor of love from the author... even if the author, Tommy Wiseau, is a complete nut.
A misogynist vanity project made by someone who is quite clearly borderline autistic. 5/5
