    The Disaster Artist

    ★★★★

    Made to be watched in a theatre full of spoon-hurling Wiseau fanatics, The Disaster Artist embraces the cult mindset, appealing to an unorthodox fan-base with the kind of atypical humour that paracinematic obsessives fall instantly in love with.

In a time where subtweeting and unfriending have become the standard way to send a message about a failed relationship, a movie that dedicates an entire novel to the person who ruined an author’s life feels like a pretty contemptuous one.
