A bona fide classic of midnight cinema, Tommy Wiseau's misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. You will never see a football the same way again.

"The Citizen Kane of bad movies" (Entertainment Weekly); "a bad – shockingly bad – romantic tragedy" (Time Out New York); "prompts most of its viewers to ask for their money back – before even 30 minutes have passed" (Variety). Most film-makers have nightmares about reviews like these, but they've worked wonders for The Room, a movie whose transcendent awfulness has made it a cult phenomenon and an audience-participation fixture along the lines of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

It's difficult to make any sort of movie, good or bad, but to make a movie that's so bad it's good you need vision, drive, luck and obsessive vanity. Fortuitously, The Room's writer/producer/director/star Tommy Wiseau appears to possess all of these qualities, combined with a total lack of acting talent.

2003 | US | 99 min | Dir. Tommy Wiseau
