The Disaster Artist

thedisastorartistteaserposterYear: 2017
Synopsis: A film about the troubled production of the unintentional comedy The Room

Pros:
A near pitch-perfect, comedic film about the making of a bad film. The Room was a gloriously successful disaster. The characters in Disaster are all easy identify with in their near impossible push to create a career for themselves, and by proxy, it makes the real life people understandable.

Cons:
A bit overshadowed by the accusations against Franco. As the film is about the independent side of Hollywood, the accusations silently and unfortunately add another layer to the film.

Discussion:
I truly came out of this film with a strong understanding of who the real life people portrayed were. Wiseau is someone that no longer sees his life prior to coming to America as important; Sestro saw vision in Wiseau. They all are truly passionate about what they do. Like Ed Wood before it, this is a film about perseverance hilariously.
