How Learning to Surf Made James Franco Better at Everything
Of all the bad Hollywood movies containing such qualities, why is The Room still selling-out midnight screenings to largely responsive crowds? Now, I must say that as a huge Franco fan, my opinion on his creative works is a little biased. That being said, The Disaster Artist is absolutely brilliant. The movie portrays Tommy Wiseau as an Ed Wood-like character, who, after facing years of rejection within the film industry, takes matters into his own hands — he writes, directs, produces, and stars in a full-length feature of his own. Tommy Wiseau is a disaster artist — his work is chaotic, flawed, and perceived in complete opposite of its intentions.

William Wright November 17, Tommy Wiseau, the writer, director, producer and star of The Room is quite possibly the most enigmatic and absurd celebrity in existence.

A film adaptation of the same name was released in , directed by and starring James Franco as Wiseau and his brother Dave Franco as Sestero. Sestero is at first perplexed by Wiseau's over-the-top acting technique, his unusual physical appearance, his mysterious accent and his eccentric behavior, which includes a fascination with American culture and a refusal to discuss his past. At the same time, Sestero admires Wiseau's boldness and his genuine enthusiasm for both life and acting. The two form an odd but affectionate bond as Sestero begins to learn of the many contradictions of Wiseau's personality. Sestero signs with talent agent Iris Burton ; as he slowly accrues more acting credits and makes other friends, Wiseau grows jealous, schemes to earn similar acknowledgement such as earning an SAG card by producing and starring in a commercial for a company he himself owned , and threatens to evict him from the Los Angeles apartment he is loaning to him, leading Sestero to become uncomfortable with their relationship.

Отчаянно вырываясь из его рук, Сьюзан локтем с силой ударила Хейла. Он отпустил ее и прижал ладони к лицу. Из носа у него пошла кровь. Хейл упал на колени, не опуская рук. - Ах ты, мерзавка! - крикнул он, скорчившись от боли.
Головы повернулись к спутниковому экрану. - Танкадо играет с нами в слова! - сказал Беккер. - Слово элемент имеет несколько значений. - Какие же, мистер Беккер? - спросил Фонтейн. Все остальные встретили слова Беккера недоуменным молчанием.
Слова коммандера словно обожгли Сьюзан. - Дэвид в Испании? - Она не могла поверить услышанному. - Вы отправили его в Испанию? - В ее голосе послышались сердитые нотки. - Зачем.
Только туда ей и оставалось идти в наглухо запертом помещении. Поднявшись по ступенькам, она обнаружила, что дверь в кабинет шефа открыта, поскольку электронный замок без электропитания бесполезен.
