"The Disaster Artist" Movie Review
I, unfortunately, have not seen The Room (not to be confused with the 2015 Oscar winner starring Brie Larson). And after watching The Disaster Artist, I desperately wish I had. I think most viewers will find it fascinating how such a bad movie could lead to such a magnificent retelling of the making of said bad movie.
In this production, James Franco focuses on more than just how or why The Room was made. The Disaster Artist is about the friendship of filmmaking duo Tommy and Greg, whose loyalty to each other has immense emotional payoff by the end. But there's also a keen sense love, passion, and dedication to the art of filmmaking, expressed perfectly through Franco's portrayal of Tommy and though the quality of the production of The Disaster Artist.
Which brings me to the acting. Both Dave and James Franco maintain fantastic chemistry, but James demonstrates exactly how talented and diverse of an actor he is with this role, and his performance is incredible.
It's said that The Room is the greatest bad movie ever made, and The Disaster Artist properly captures the greatness of everything that was bad.
