The Room

The Room

I mean, sure, this is inept, but there's nothing interesting or even particularly odd about its ineptitude. There are some hammy moments and behaviors that don't resemble anything near a human response, and a handful of eye-roller lines, but mostly it's just boring. What is it that created the cult here besides wanting to laugh at something that sucks? There's no accidental or hidden artistry, nor is there a sense of a personality leaking through the film's very obvious and ragged seams. All that really sticks out is Wiseau, of course, because his performance -- not his airquotes auteurism -- is the only anomalous or weird thing here (everyone else is just acting-class blank). You guys seriously need to find some better bad movies, this is some basic shit.

edit: Since it keeps coming up, no I did not watch this alone.
