THE DISASTER ARTIST – Review
“A spectacular film about the greatest ‘worst’ movie ever made”
‘The Room’; Directed, Written and Produced by the mysterious Tommy Wiseau. Infamous for being one of the worst movies ever made in film history. Now witness the incredible story of how this film came about, with James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist’.
Simply put this film is remarkable. Franco’s portrayal of Tommy is captivating to the point of being completely convinced that he is, Tommy, himself.
“The film is steady, entertaining and will keep you interested throughout. Heading home to google long after it finishes.”
Wiseau has to be one of the most interesting men in Hollywood, and a true example of not giving up on your dreams – regardless of how bad those around you say you are. Or some may say the most stubborn man in the world.
The Franco brothers dominate this film as their onscreen chemistry truly fills the entire duration to a point where you can feel their friendship; blossoming and cracking at the same time.
The ensemble cast pull together something remarkable and quite unseen for many years as their dark comedic presence are something one needs to observe in its full glory.
Much like Wiseau’s original screening itself, the audience in the theatre started to applaud at the films end – but this time for all the right reasons.
It’s been awhile since I have walked out of the theatre truly taken back with how riveting a performance can be.
Franco deserves the Oscar nod for his dazzling display and perhaps a look in at the younger brother. To sum it up without spewing far too much praise for something – I was weary about beforehand, this could truly be the best release and film of the year.
Go see this film now.
