– James Croot, Sunday Star 3 1/2 stars out of 5. “For me, The Disaster Artist literally burst into life when the story reached the making of The Room.

Surrounded by a cadre of comedians including Seth Rogen and Ari Graynor and more serious actors like Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson and Jacki Weaver, the brothers Franco do a terrific job of recreating its “high” points and detailing the truly chaotic production (a fact illustrated by eerily effective side-by-side shot comparisons with the original).

However, as actor Paul Scheer said at The Disaster Artist’s Toronto Film Festival premiere, “it’s the perfect prequel for those who’ve never seen The Room and the perfect sequel for those who have”.”

 

– Toby Woolaston NZ Herald 3 1/2 Stars out of 5. “Much of the film’s success hinges on James Franco’s performance as Tommy Wiseau, and thankfully he delivers a convincing portrayal. When Wiseau’s antics begin to stretch beyond the unbelievable the film is clever enough to ground itself through the reactions of Wiseau’s cast and crew – all who respond to Wiseau’s many WTF moments with what we, the audience, are all thinking … is this guy for real?

Yes folks, he is. The Disaster Artist might just usher in the golden era of Tommy Wiseau. Naaht a bad film at all.”

James Franco directs and stars in this behind-the-scenes look at Tommy Wiseau’s cult phenomenon The Room. Based on the memoir of The Room co-star Greg Sestero, and starring Dave Franco, Ari Graynor and Seth Rogen alongside a bevy of star-studded cameos.

These two endearing misfits move to L.A. and try to live the Hollywood dream by making their very own feature film, but end up embarking on a wildly unpredictable and hilariously unforgettable production. Leading to one of the most infamous, bizarre, and beloved midnight movies of all time, The Room
