Sincere and heartfelt story ofchasing your dreamsThe “Disaster Artist” is a 2017 Americanbiographical comedy-drama film produced and directed by James Franco. Writtenby Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the film is based on Greg Sestero andTom Bissell’s non-fiction book of the same name, and chronicles the making ofTommy Wiseau’s 2003 The Room, widelybranded as one of the worst films ever made in human history. The film starsbrothers James and Dave Franco as Wiseau and Sestero, respectively, togetherwith a supporting cast presenting Seth Rogen.
In a nut-graph, this is the kind ofcomedy that is frequently laugh-out-loud funny. But it is also sympathetictowards Wiseau’s insatiable desire to create, to find fame. Veryenjoyable. TheRoom James Franco changes the moving true-story ofaspiring filmmaker and disreputable Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau – an artistwhose desire was as sincere as his methods were questionable – into acelebration of friendship, creative manifestation, and dreams pursued against overwhelmingodds.
Centered on Greg Sestero’s best ‘selling tell’ all about the making ofTommy’s cult-classic disaster piece ‘The Room’ (“The Greatest Bad Movie EverMade”), The Disaster Artist is a sidesplitting and welcome cue that there ismore than one way to become a legend— and no limit to what you can attain whenyou have undeniably no idea what you’re doing. If you didn’t know anything about filmmakerTommy Wiseau and saw James Franco play him in this movie, you’d think he’s goneinsanely over the top. In fact, he nails the character’s unusual accent,impulsive actions and overall weirdness.
Wiseau wrote, directed and starred inwhat some people consider the worst movie ever made, THE ROOM.The Disaster Artist” is a sweet, ferventlyappealing tribute to friendship, the movies and the importance of dreams. Comical, but occasionally violent andsurprisingly touching, it works whether you’ve seen the source material or notThis is absolutely incredible. The103 min show brings the real-life story of how the 2003 cult movie. Honestly this is one of those moviesthat is best seen relatively blind. The performances are great, the chemistrybetween characters is pitch perfect. The tone of the film is absolutely splendid.
When it comes to cinematography and production,the camera work was quite a letdown. Nevertheless while the camera-work can beerratic at times, the rest of the movie prevails in being an underdog storyabout one of the most mysterious underdogs in all of cinema history. The biopicof how Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero met and make The Room (2003) is actuallyquite an uplifting adventure.Thereal life story is so further than anything believable that if this were a workof fiction, it could immediately be dismissed as just that. By everything wewitness in “The Disaster Artist”, Tommy is so incredibly inapt yetconvinced of his own talent.
One would want to conclude that The Disaster Artist, James Franco conversely sets out to tell the story behindthe “worst movie ever” in a very good film.
