I recently wrote about The Room, as it appeared at B-Fest. Anyone in the Chicagoland area may be interested to learn that the film is playing at Chicago’s historic Music Box Theatre this Friday night (8:30 and 11:00), and that it will be accompanied by a personal appearance by the film’s writer / star / director, Tommy Wiseau. I note they are marketing the film as a “black comedy,” but unless Wiseau is the greatest satiric genius working in film today, that’s crap. The movie just sucks.
In a pretty entertaining way, though.
