93% The Disaster Artist (2017) You could just look at this as one of the most seriously funny movies about movie making, but why stop there? Thanks to James Franco's canny eye, this love song to a film so bad it's good also delivers one of the best emotional surprises of the year.‐ The Movie Minute
