The Disaster Artist (press-screening review)

Director; James Franco
Biography/Comedy
1h 44 minutes
Swedish premiere; February 9th 2018

Another piece by James Franco that delivered laughter and a glimpse of insight into what is known to be the best worst movie ever made, The Room by Tommy Wiseau. Walking into the screening without any sort of expectations, or having watched the trailer, was one of the best decisions I had ever made. Because otherwise, I wouldn’t have given it a fair chance and missed out on a brilliant performance by Franco, a joyful comedy, and a great time.

Jame Franco is simply phenomenal and stays true to his character from beginning to end. Besides his acting, his heart and soul radiates through, helping you as a viewer to find compassion, love, and care for him despite his strange, odd, and eccentric persona.

Greg (Dave Franco), a struggling yet shy actor who hasn’t find a way to break through his shell takes on Tommy Wiseau, portrayed by James Franco as his mentor. Together they move to the city of angels to make their dreams come true. A weird friendship that blossoms thanks to their common dream and goal, to be Hollywood stars.

I had a blast, it’s an abstract motion picture piece of art. 7/10
