Wiseau's seen Disaster Artist as SXSW. Franco asked him what he thought.

 

Quote

"I was like, 'So, Tommy, what did you think of the movie?' And he said, 'I approve 99.9 percent'. And we were like, 'What was the 0.1 percent?' And he said, 'I think the lighting, in the beginning, a little off'."

It’s not available to (legally) stream anywhere is it? Tried to buy a digital copy to no avail :(

Saw a preview earlier. It's brilliant!

 

A preview? Is it not on general release? We saw it in our local cinema last Friday.

The full film was on YouTube not long ago. Not sure if it's still there.

Well, it was a free ticket thing (on Monday) and none of the local cinemas were letting you pay to see it before today, which thus logically appeared to be release day!

 

edit: also the email with the free tickets did literally call it a preview screening!

Went down a rabbit hole... You can buy a physical copy from the official website, but stopped buying DVDs years ago to reduce clutter. Maybe a screening in London will line up with a trip home.

 

Wiseau hasn’t yet released rights for streaming. He could to cash in on the renewed interest but guess the regular screenings, where he often does Q&As, probably has a longer tail. And let’s him be a star.

Plus, it's not as if he needs the money.

Saw this tonight having never seen so much as a still of The Room. It's a riot, I can't remember the last time I laughed so much at a film. Franco brilliant.

If you don't mind Spanish subtitles:

Ta! Often view movies with timecodes and watermarks all over them (work), so some Spanish subs are all good.

 

Buenos dias, Mark!

Just returned from seeing this. It's fucking hilarious I loved it. I found Tommy to be really sympathetic too so it wasn't a sneering humour either. Go see it while you can.

I really enjoyed this, you definitely don't need to have seen The Room either, though you will miss some great little in jokes. Lots of laughter in the cinema particularly the "oh hi Mark" scene. I really think the while thing is an amazing piece of performance art.

 

Stay till the very end!

Just saw this today, Tommy was quite a malevolent character at times. It's nice that he got a measure of recognition , something that other 'great' Ed Wood never got. Ed's biopic was a better film, but this was damn entertaining. 

 

Didn't stay till the end. What did I miss?
