If you love bad movies, then you've surely heard of or have already seen The Room by now, regarded as one of the worst films ever made, and an excellent addition to any Bad Movie Night. I'm here to tell you, it's pretty bad, but in a highly entertaining way. It definitely lives up to the hype. It's like a trainwreck that you can't take your eyes off of, yet it's also fascinating in it's straightforward approach to a film that on the surface is supposed to be a drama, but ends up being a film so hilarious because of it's ineptitude that it instead becomes an unintentional comedy. But moving on.
Maybe you've also heard that Seth Rogen and James Franco are making a film adaptation on Room co-star Greg Sestero's book The Disaster Artist, which is based on his experience making this cult classic? They are, and I believe it's already near completion if I'm not mistaken. But I wasn't aware that there was a documentary in the works on the making of The Room, it's appeal, impact, and the mystery surrounding actor/writer/director Tommy Wiseau until just the other day. And guess what? It's done and ready for pre-order.
Here's a synopsis from the official website:
Room Full of Spoons is an in depth documentary about the cult film that is widely accepted as the worst film ever made: The Room, and it’s eccentric creator Tommy Wiseau.
