Cinematic irony: when a film about what might be the Worst Film Ever Made ends up being one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year, and a five-time Best Actor Winner and seven-time Best Screenplay Winner (so far).

In director James Franco’s THE DISASTER ARTIST, Franco himself stars as Tommy Wiseau, writer-producer-director of the 2003 cult-classic disasterpiece The Room. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of The Room, The Disaster Artist avoids the trappings of being simply a hit-piece on its notoriously bizarre subject filmmaker by emerging as a celebration of artistic expression, friendship, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds, elevated by screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber’s alternately hilarious and poignant script. Led by an invested performance by Franco who all but transforms himself into Wiseau, The Disaster Artist is a portrait of a man whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable, and is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.

“Funny — sometimes brutally — and surprisingly touching, it works whether you’ve seen the source material or not, though there are plentiful shout-outs to die-hard fans.” – Sarah Stewart, New York Post

“Grade: 4/4. The Disaster Artist is funny from the beginning – but it becomes downright side-splitting once Tommy gets onto a film set.” – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

“James Franco is firing on all his creative cylinders in this comic bonanza about Tommy Wiseau, the worst filmmaker of the 21st century. Franco hits a new career peak by making sure his film is as heartfelt as it is hilarious.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
