The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist Poster

I don't know about you, but I'm so utterly exhausted from all the bad news on the internet and on TV.  These are dark times we're living in.  And this movie was just what the doctor ordered for me.  It's truly a delight.

For those unfamiliar, here's a little backstory.  In 2003 a film called The Room was released, and over the next 14 years became known as one of the best worst films of all time.  I've seen it and it truly is horrible.  But this is the story of its making.  James Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, the mysterious man behind the film, and his brother Dave Franco stars as his buddy and costar.  To tell you any more would ruin the fun.  But it's a total feel good, funny, and poignant film.  And likely to get some awards love.  Go see it.

Grade: A

Who is this movie for?  Everyone.  And no, you don't have to have seen The Room to thoroughly enjoy it.   But it wouldn't hurt.
