Written by, starring, and directed by Tommy Wiseau 2003‘s The Room has been credited as the worst film ever made and must surely have been shot a decade before it dribbled out of post production. However, it is not just potentially the worst film; but also one of the best…
Burdened with over–stated, stuttering dialogue and shot on both film and video (for no apparent technical reason), the stocking–over–the–camera style is complemented by a sound mix from Family Ties and the Moods compact disc series.
This film is an early 90s symphony: the set design is straight from E-Street or Home And Away. It‘s the chef–d’oeuvre of innuendo and a soft porn spectacular, with only a Fabio or David Hasselhoff missing from the coveted sex scenes. Our sultry heroine–superstar–film maker is literally swamped in a thematic ménage–à–troi of promiscuity, social despondence and amorality. This all wedged firmly amid an endless epitome of 90s music video!
Watch for the ‘blowjob‘ scene and the infamous drug dealer scene: “Ahhh!”. With lines like “I remember going to LA, the BBQ chicken was nice, that was cool“, “Hi, Doggy” and “You look great babyface, yeahhh” combined with the trend–setting “XYZ” (examine your zipper) you will be swimming in aboslute quote delirium.
Wiseau is one sick fuck.
Relish this bizarre and self-effacing moral tale: Cinema Nova screens the film every Saturday night.
