Miraculously, the supporting players end up illuminating Wiseau's eccentricity instead of undercutting it.

It may soon join Tim Burton's Ed Wood in the ranks of great movies about terrible movies.

The Disaster Artist largely works because it brings us closer to Tommy while reveling in the same ingredients that have turned him into an icon.

[Boasts] a genuine capacity to delight, whether or not the audiences in question have seen "The Room."

Franco wants to have his cake and eat it too, openly mocking Wiseau for his weirdness, then heralding him for his persistence and ability to embrace The Room's reputation.
