What is it to sit through the premiere of your debut movie, and witness the audience laugh out loud at what was intended to be serious drama?
The Disaster Artist is about how a really bad movie got made.
A movie so bad that audiences the world over still love it for its unintentional humor, incredibly bad acting and lame storytelling.
The Disaster Artist is a neat, well-paced chronicle of how Tommy Wiseau's cult 'so baaaad that it is goooood' flick, The Room (2003) was made.
James Franco does an impressive turn directing the movie and playing Wiseau, mimicking the strange spirit, drawl and body language of the determined man.
Franco's brother Dave, playing Wiseau's friend and co-star Greg is sincere too.
The Disaster Artist is a good, often funny and engaging experience about what most critics call the "best worst movie ever made."
It is a brave, clean attempt, and in its way, applauds friendship against all odds and is a cheerful shout out to every one out there who find the courage to follow their dreams.
The Disaster Artist tells us why pure conviction and drive matters, irrespective of the outcome.
A little nitty-bitty funny fight of a film.
