Confession: I love The Room. In every way an unintentionally so-bad-it’s-good movie can be loved. When I’m down, an instant pick-me-up is to watch its bizarre flower shop scene. And I’ve done the “You’re tearing me apart, Lisa” gesture far too often.
Like many Room fans, I’ve been fascinated by filmmaker Tommy Wiseau’s… everything. And now we can all learn more about the film, because Greg Sestero (Mark! “Oh hi, Mark!”) wrote a book about his experience called The Disaster Artist. It’s coming out in October, and A.V. Club posted an exclusive excerpt from the book. It really can only be described as surreal.
PS. If you didn’t already know, Greg Sestero was a guest on “How Did This Get Made” and spoke about The Room. I’ve only listened to it twice.
