Angst in Arkansas!

Posted by admin under Articles

When you think of great cinematic displays of angst, maybe you land on Gena Rowlands wilding out in “A Woman under the Influence.” Or Brando, bellowing up at the balcony in “A Streetcar Named Desire.” But that’s only because you probably haven’t seen “The Room,” the melodrama-turned-cult-hit that screened at the Little Rock Film Festival in May. It will play again at 9 p.m. Saturday at Market Street Cinema and, if organizer Levi Agee has his way, each subsequent final Saturday of the month until September.

The media savvy among you might already have heard about this, or seen clips form it on YouTube. It has been playing once-monthly midnight shows in Los Angeles for five years now, to audiences that react with an interactive fervor that recalls the heyday of Rocky Horror. It’s available on DVD, and while you can’t get it from NetFlix or at local rental outlets, you can buy it for under $10 at Amazon.

Get it. It’s worth every penny.

The steamy story of a love triangle between a duplicitous young woman, her too-trusting fiancé and his best friend, The Room is a movie that provokes many, many questions.

Indeed, their sheer abundance makes Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 movie an unusually enigmatic viewing experience, as Torontonians may discover when one of the decade’s strangest cult sensations has its first official Canadian screening at the Royal July 24.

With his film The Room, Tommy Wiseau has produced the rarest of things — a camp classic that lives up to the so-bad-it’s-good hype. He doesn’t mind if you compare him to Ed Wood, as long as you see his masterpiece “at least three or more times”

Sandra and Tommy?! Whaaa?

Eh…It’s not what you think….But MSNBC does mention Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room” in their story about Sandra Bullock’s movie, “All About Steve.” Check it out!

“One of the more unlikely cult successes of recent years has been Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room,” a movie that sells out its monthly midnight screenings in Los Angeles not because it’s good but because it’s so exceedingly inept as to merit fascination. It’s one of those films you watch that leaves you wondering if its maker has ever seen a movie or had a conversation in English with another human being.”

Since its initial release in 2003, The Room has reached near Rocky Horror levels of cult devotion in the U.S., spawning regular midnight showings in Los Angeles and New York, in which moviegoers will yell out dialogue, throw plastic spoons and even act out scenes in front of the screen. It made its Canadian debut in Halifax and Toronto this summer, and will screen in Ottawa on Sept. 18.

“To adapt Sergio Leone, the history of cinema can be described as a display of the good, the bad and the downright bizarre, and it is in this third category that a film of questionable quality can sometimes take on a life of its own, due entirely to the reaction of the audience.

So to The Room, which is selling out theatres despite every natural convention dictating that it should have faded into obscurity after having been made years ago. The cinematic aspiration of Tommy Wiseau, The Room was conceived as a love triangle between Johnny (played by Wiseau himself), his errant fiancé Lisa (Juliette Danielle) and her cardboard cut out lover Mark (Greg Sestero). Oh yes, you heard that right.”

I want to thank OgenB for allowing us to post his wonderful YouTube fan interviews from the packed Portland screening last month. And read his killer review of “The Room” here!

“‘The Room’ by Tommy Wiseau, has been called many things: confusing, inspired awfulness, genius. But in reality, “The Room” defies description. It can be found everywhere these days from Fox News to Tim & Eric. People cant seem to get enough of this amazing cinematic achievement.

We here at mimoZine, being fans ourselves, set out to explore the phenomenon from our own senseless sensibilities. We talked to Michael Rousselet (5secondfilms.com ) the man-boy screenwriter who was an early discoverer of The Room and started some of the 1st interactive screenings. We also met with the amazing Greg Sestero (famous for staring as Marc in the movie) who gave us an inside perspective on the making of The Room.”
