msmichel's rating of the film The Disaster Artist

Homage or put-on? Franco's films as a director have been a strange mix of quality, tone and subject and perhaps he's found a kindred spirit in Tommy Wiseau in a sense. J. Franco certainly scores with his performance here finding both the conviction and self doubt in Wiseau while wisely not trying to solve any mysteries of the man himself. The comparison credit sequence works well.
