More than a decade after its release, Tommy Wiseau's electrifying debut as lead actor, screenwriter, executive producer and director continues to reverberate with audiences around the world. Influenced by the work of Tennessee Williams and James Dean, THE ROOM is equal parts melodrama, black comedy and a psychosexual deconstruction of modern relationships as seen in the crumbling relationship of two San Francisco professionals.
As a snapshot of post-9/11 America, THE ROOM is a fierce commentary by Wiseau on the plight of elderly cancer patients, the encroachment of warrantless wiretapping in society, and the sense of never-ending betrayal seemingly inherent to everyday life. Wiseau's script takes time to establish a larger world in ambitious banker Johnny (Wiseau)'s apartment building, where he resides with his future wife Lisa (Juliette Daniel), a beautiful young woman struggling to find her place within the fiercely competitive computer industry.
Early in the film we're introduced to Denny, Johnny's adopted charge, a boy burdened with insatiable curiosity and unpaid debts. Then there's Mark (Greg Sestero), Johnny's best friend and confidant. Handsome, troubled, and often bearded, Mark's weakness proves to be a spark that ignites a raging inferno.
THE ROOM is a captivating cinematic experience. In the words of Tommy Wiseau, “I recommend seeing THE ROOM at the theater and at least twice.”
