The Room

I am now intrigued. You can find plenty of clips from The Room on YouTube; here’s a taste:

Another gem here. Hopefully this will make it into this years film festival.

According to Wiseau’s wikipedia page he’s planning to make a musical about the life of Ayn Rand. It all fits, doesn’t it?

  2. I’m watching it now. It is everything they say it is. Try and track down the rooftop scene.

  3. I watched the whole thing last night and it was brilliant. I’m not so sure the humor is in fact unintentional though. I mean, there’s a scene near the end where, in a fit of rage, the main character effortlessly manhandles a television..

  4. “Try and track down the rooftop scene.”

    Which one? Aren’t there several (all bluescreened)?

    I saw that scene on youtube. It is suspiciously similar to a very famous scene in Citizen Kane, and I suspect the director seems himself as an auteur in the tradition of Orson Welles and is paying homage to him in that scene. I think it’s meant to be a serious film.

  6. Sam: I was only partway through it. They’re all awesome, but the best one is the first, where Chris-R threatens to kill Denny over a drug deal.
