About THE DISASTER ARTIST.
In 2003, the independent film The Room made an inauspicious debut on a single cinema screen in Los Angeles. Described by one reviewer as -like getting stabbed in the head-, the film gradually developed an increasingly passionate following that savoured its surreal performances, unusual production values and bizarre narrative. Now in its fifth year at The Prince Charles Cinema, The Room has become an international phenomenon that rivals The Rocky Horror Picture Show for cult appeal. Readers need not have seen The Room to appreciate co-star Greg Sestero’s account of how a chance meeting with The Room’s enigmatic writer/director/star Tommy Wiseau allowed him to become closely involved in a passion project that would defy every law of artistry, business and interpersonal relationships. The Disaster Audience reveals a first-hand account of what went on behind the scenes of one of the most legendary cult movies ever made: Tommy Wiseau’s The Room.
