The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist

James Franco directs and stars in this biographical comedy about Tommy Wiseau, the inscrutable (and questionably talented) writer-director behind "the Citizen Kane of bad movies," 2003's ridiculous cult hit The Room. Franco's baby bro Dave Franco co-stars as Greg Sestero, the lousy but determined San Francisco actor who befriends Wiseau. After a move to Los Angeles in search of fame and fortune proves fruitless, the two deluded dreamers talk each other into making their own independent film. Aside from Franco's hilariously deadpan imitation of the oddball Wiseau, the film features a surprisingly affecting depiction of the allure that Hollywood holds and the lengths some people will go to achieve it. FULL REVIEW: Actor-director James Franco transforms into actor-director Tommy Wiseau by Devin D. O’Leary (12/7/2017). 103 minutes R.
