The Disaster Artist, the name of the movie itself grabbed Buzzingtales ‘s attention. During the movie’s special screening at Reel Cinema, Marina Mall we went ballistic with this 2017 American biographical comedy-drama film produced and directed by James Franco. The movie presents an endearing commentary on what comprises of friendship. It also presents a hilarious portrait of failed filmmaker Tommy Wiseau. A special thanks to Shooting star and Warner Bros as well as Reel Cinemas for the invite & for striking a high note on big screen as the New Year comes in.
Writen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber the film is based on Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell’s biographical book of the same name. It basically chronicles the making of Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 film The Room. With this movie Franco succeeds in bringing out the tragically comic character of Wiseau who had always been considered as a Hollywood outsider as well as the maker of the worst ever, ie The Room. The Disaster Artist stars the two brothers James and Dave Franco who excel in their roles as Wiseau and Sestero, respectively. The supporting cast featurs Seth Rogen (who also produced), Alison Brie, Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson, and Jacki Weaver.
James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist,’ is able to portray beautifully an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable. The strong yet bizarre friendship between Sistero & Wiseau as well as the eccentricity of the protagonist evokes several comic moments. The movie also provokes one to see our struggles through from a different perspective. The movie is based on Greg Sestero best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disaster piece ‘The Room’ (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”).
