It might be a shitty movie but it does have its moments and there are some brilliance in it whether it was intended or not. I also feel like there is a three hour director's cut here because there are a lot of subplots that are never addressed. I feel like you could make this film good but then nobody would probably fuck with it because everyone loves a trainwreck and they cling to the novelty of it all.
The way most great films are full of subtle qualities that reveal themselves upon repeat viewings is exactly the way the Room is; its just that The Room is packed with so many glaring mistakes between flurries of Wiseau's monotone laughter, you won't possibly catch them all the first time around.
99 long long minutes in which you are not truly sure if everything is actually that bad or it has been planned that way. Halfway between the porn aesthetic and the cheap soup opera, everything is so uncanny and so badly orchestrated it becomes funny. I couldn't stop laughing, both for how bad I was feeling about wasting my time and for how hilarious it was in its horrid nature.
watched this again after a couple of years. It's still cringeworthy beyond belief but it also has very funny moments. Unintentionally bad movies that keep you well entertained for 90 mins are rare, so it's highly recommended to people who are looking for that. Neil Breen is a master at this as well btw ; )
