PH Cult Selects: THE ROOM

Description:

THE ROOM is this generation's ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW - an I-can't-believe-anyone-made-a-movie-like-this midnight movie sensation courtesy of enigmatic director, producer, writer, star Tommy Wiseau. Now billed as a “black comedy”, there’s nothing in this unintentionally hilarious film that indicates it was ever intended to be anything but a drama. Full of now-iconic one-liners - “Oh hai, Mark!” - gratuitous sex scenes, and frequent shots of a spoon painting sitting on a table (at midnight screenings, audience members throw plastic spoons every time the picture appears), THE ROOM is a joy-inducing spectacle. And, to top it all off, co-star and frequent Wiseau conspirator, Greg Sestero, wrote a bestselling book, THE DISASTER ARTIST, that chronicles the making of THE ROOM that was itself adapted into an Oscar-nominated film. THE ROOM is our programmer Joshua Handler’s favorite cult movie that is a passionately-made work which has given the world over 20 years of happiness and nonstop laughter.
