The Disaster Artist
– The Disaster Artist is a limited release below our usual threshold of what we include on new releases at 800 theaters nationwide. But considering The Disaster Artist is telling the story behind the famously BAD movie The Room, I thought that it deserved a spot in this post. The film itself is based on the non-fiction account also called The Disaster Artist by author and actor Greg Sestero, friend to infamous Tommy Wiseau and line producer and “Mark” in The Room. The film chronicles the production of The Room, from its creation to its difficult production and problems from Tommy Wiseau and more to its release and embrace by the cult community as a good bad film. To top it off the film is done as a biographical dramedy, heavy on the comedy side. Even one look at the cast list should be proof enough of that.
