MONTHLY LATE SHOW: THE ROOM -- FRIDAY JULY 25
An American black comedy about love and passion, betrayal and lies, THE ROOM depicts the depths of friendship and relationships in one's life and raises life's real and most asked question: "Can you ever really trust anyone?... Called the “best worst movie ever made,” unintentional humor abounds in this modern cult favorite, highlighted by a deliriously entertaining albeit undeniably awful performance from its creepy long-haired creator.
But despite - or maybe also due to - the miles of cinematic ineptitude, THE ROOM is a one-of-a-kind hilarious blast from beginning to end. Read Flagpole Magazine's review and interview with Tommy Wiseau HERE
