"The Room" is a cult classic because everything about it is theoretically unwatchable. In more relatable terms, it's our generations "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and according to the press release it has the "passion of Tennessee Williams."
Cast and crew kept getting fired and rehired, unnecessary purchases were made (amounting to a $6 million budget), and a madman by the name of Tommy Wiseau was in charge. Shrouded in mystery, few people even know his birth place and age. As you can see, we posed with a homemade Tommy Wiseau Crow.
One of my favorite stories about "The Room" is that Tommy Wiseau bought two cameras (not just rented, but bought) because he didn't know whether the film would look better in digital or 35mm. The two cameras were rolling for every scene.
I had such a great time at our little screening! We had Room fans and new converts alike. Lisandro is holding my copy of "The Disaster Artist" a tell-all about the making of "The Room." Lavrenti has the infamous "Scotchka" drink. And Marcus has my football, signed by TW himself. You're all amazing for bearing with me on this one!
And for those who don't get my obsession. You don't understand anything, man. Leave your stupid comments in your pocket!
