Can you ever really trust anyone?
Johnny is a successful banker with great respect for and dedication to the people in his life, especially his future wife Lisa. The happy-go-lucky guy sees his world fall apart when his friends begin to betray him one-by-one.
Tommy Wiseau as Johnny a romantic at heart with a heartless fiancé who's shagging his best friend in the quintessential so bad it's bad film. Golden Gate Bridge. Swashbuckling music. The way Tommy says "Hi babe." Curious Denny. Pillow fight. Slow dancing. Rose petals and boobs. The way Tommy wiggles his ass while he is having simulated sex. Mommy dearest. Lisa's pouty face. Of course the "other man" has a badass beard. Mark's teeth. Is it hot in here? More ladies need to use that line. Trust me it will work. Oh hell yes! This seduction scene music sounds like a cross between Sade and TLC. Sexy florist. How long is free months? Lisa kinda looks like a Ninja Turtle…
I finally watched this and I now think that no words of mine can do it justice and only the words from the film itself can do that. For those who have watched the film it would be a trip down your cherished memory lane and for those who haven't the following would be reasons why it is criminal not to see this at least once in your lifetime. So here it goes.
Mark: How was work today?
Johnny: Oh, pretty good. We got a new client and the bank will make a lot of money.
Mark: What client?
Johnny: I cannot tell you; it's confidential.
Mark: Aw, come on. Why not?
Johnny: No, I can't. Anyway, how is…
"The Room" masterfully written, directed, produced, and starring Tommy Wiseau tells the Shakespearean tragedy of Johnny, a banker who is betrayed by the "love of his life", Lisa. Fueled by powerful performances and flawless directing, "The Room" is a masterpiece in filmmaking that will definetely leave it's audience speechless.
Wiseau's face is a Picasso.
The Room is outdated and ahead of its time.
It goes from appallingly bad to hilariously bad to post modernist Nirvana.
I have to rate it five stars for even that cannot make sense.
Tonight I discovered the best way to watch THE ROOM: With someone who has not only never seen it before, but has no idea what it is. Their reactions to the madness, particularly in the early scenes, were absolutely priceless.
Oh hai Letterboxd.
Did the San Francisco Tourism Bureau finance the opening credit sequence? Why is a grown couple hanging out with a 14-year-old rando? Are they done having sex yet? Why is there a decorative shower in their bedroom? Do the gods know there’s a mortal named Mark with hair that luscious? Why is he surprised Lisa’s coming onto him when she called him “baby” over the phone earlier? Was the camera supposed to go out of focus? Wait, why are they kissing now? What happened between kissing her and Mark telling her he wasn't going to do it? Are they seriously going to have sex on a hard-ass, uncarpeted, cramped spiral staircase? Are they done having sex yet? Wait, have they…
this was terribly beautiful
Not rating this is probably the appropriate star rating for this. Oh Tommy wiseau how I would love to hear you narrate my life. This beautiful piece of shit is a requirement for film buffs to see just to say they have. From the belly button sex down to creepy ass stalker drug affiliated Denny. I want a spinoff of the drug dealers beef with Denny. I promise you will make the same face as the cover after you see it
At the RIo Theatre in Vancouver with Greg Sestero (Mark) hosting a script runthrough beforehand. Good times!
As atrociously bad as it is absurdly entertaining
Legitimately saw some artistic and technical merit in it this time around
1001 films you should see before you die?
forget that list this is the only thing you should see.
Inventive, genius and groundbreaking. Citizen Kane who? Metropolis who? Psycho who? Hitchcock, Welles and Lang are SHOOK!
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
