The Disaster Artist (2017)

US 103m, Colour
Director: James Franco; Cast: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson, Jacki Weaver

The Disaster Artist is a comical biographical drama about the making of Tommy Wiseau’s infamous drama The Room (2003). James Franco gives an extraordinary performance as Wiseau, the eccentric producer, director, writer and actor. Taking a page from Ed Wood (1994), The Disaster Artist provides a surprisingly sympathetic portrayal of one of history’s most infamous filmmakers. Hugely entertaining, The Disaster Artist is a sincere film that is likely to introduce a new audience to Wiseau’s work (Klaus Ming March 2018).

    I finally got to see The Disaster Artist in the Cinema last Tuesday, and where I had supected it to go down hard on Wiseau I was also surprised at how sympathetic it actually is. Wiseau is presented more as a guy I should feel sorry for than a jerk to just write off.
    Though, if half the things the movies tells us about the guy is true, that man is seriously weird.

      Even though I’ve never been unable to sit through all of The Room, I’ve been wanting to see this one for some time as well. I suspect that Wiseau’s involvement in the film may have something to do with how sympathetically her was portrayed. In any event, this is one of my favourites for 2017. And yeah, Tommy is one strange dude!
