"You're tearing me apart, Lisa!"
Sorry, we came over all Tommy Wiseau there – but that's because we hosted our Unlimited screening of The Disaster Artist last night.
James Franco's delightful and poignant movie-about-moviemaking explores the behind-the-scenes story of Wiseau's infamously bad directorial debut The Room, widely regarded as the 'best worst movie ever made'.
It's adapted from the book by Greg Sestero, co-star of The Room, and played in the movie by Dave Franco, with brother James as Tommy himself.
The Disaster Artist has generated one of the most enthusiastic set of responses we've seen in quite some time. We'll begin with Austerity Gamer who seems to speak for everyone with the following:
A very funny but heartwarming movie that chose affection over mockery. James Franco's best turn since 127 Hours. Loved it!— Austerity Gamer (@AusterityGamer) November 28, 2017
Here's Luke McCarthy-Reed laying on more plaudits.
What a movie. Genuinely can't get over how good the recreations were of the scenes from The Room. Thing is, it's not only a great movie about The Room but it's a great movie full of heart by itself. Ahaha what a story, Mark.— Luke McCarthy-Reed (@lukehmuse) November 27, 2017
Meanwhile Rhiannon praises Franco's funny and poignant performance as the inscrutable Wiseau.
Film of the year for me - absolutely loved it and can’t wait to see it again! James Franco nailed it! Post credit scene was brilliant— Яhiannon Яage (@RhiannonRage) November 27, 2017
Dan extends the compliments even further...
Excellent. Best film I’ve seen on my card yet. Great casting, speeds along, funny, warming. Ironically good performances!— Dan Spencer (@danleespencer) November 28, 2017
Michelle is tipping the movie for awards buzz.
#TheDisasterArtist was amazing , definitely one of the best movies I have seen this year and James Franco was incredible, I hope he gets an Oscar nomination.— michelle olivia (@MichelleO44) November 27, 2017
We'll wrap it up with this from Sambly Moron, who summarises everything that's great about Franco's movie.
