The Room

theroommovieYear: 2003
Synopsis: A successful banker learns his fiancée is cheating on him with his best friend.

Pros:
Ironically amazing and intentionally experimental. A true pinnacle of the “bad movie.” This is one of the best unintentional comedy’s ever made.

Cons:
Unconventional to a fault, while the intent might not have been to be unconventional. Every character is either unlikeable or unmemorable. Most characters are essentially introduced at the end of their first scene, causing regular confusion as to who anybody is.

Discussion:
Tommy Wiseau — the writer, official director and star — might as well be the reincarnated Ed Wood, and that might not be a bad thing. The Room was clearly a passion project by someone that truly wanted to tell a story. Sure, it is very bad. Yet, it is somehow greater than the sum of those parts. Filmmaking is an art-form, and this is hilariously abstract.
