It has a cast of professional actors who display a baseline of craft, energy, and involvement, and who surround the real-life Wiseau, who comes off in the film as a raging energumen of inchoate need. . . . “The Room,” with its blend of surface slickness and artistic clumsiness, is, for better or worse (actually, for worse), a vision of the world. It’s the embodiment of a world view that only an obliviously incoherent person would willingly display, even flaunt.
