The Disaster Artist ★★★★

this movie is a gift to the world. a true mitzvah. "a pure good," to quote Ben Kingsley in Schindler's List (as I do on the regular).

James Franco's performance as Tommy Wiseau is so good that Daniel Day-Lewis had to retire out of shame. i look forwards to pushing him for major acting awards all season long.

i have *no* idea how this will play for those who are unfamiliar with THE ROOM, but for me… this was heaven.
