The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made
Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell
The Room. Not
everyone has seen it, but many have probably heard of it. A 2003
independent film directed, produced, and written lead actor Tommy
Wiseau, The Room’s story concerns a love triangle between three
friends. Johnny (Wiseau) is a kindly, middle-aged banker engaged to the
untrustworthy Lisa (Juliette Danielle). Out of boredom, Lisa decides to
ensnare their misguided friend, Mark (Greg Sestero), in a passionate
affair in a move that will destroy their circle of friends. Meant to be
taken as a heart-wrenching drama on par with Shakespeare’s tragedies,
the film’s bad acting, bewildering script, and atrocious dialogue was
met with howls of laughter worldwide. Although a flop at the box office,
it developed an impressive cult following, and ultimately led to
Sestero’s decision to write a memoir of his experiences. Hilarious, and
at times, surprisingly sad, The Disaster Artist is a wildly entertaining
memoir that will definitely appeal to fans of The Room.
