You might not know it. But there are approximately two billion and a half film aficionados who'd argue that creator-actor-writer-director-producer Tommy Wiseau's The Room is a cinematic masterpiece full of raw human emotion that explodes across the screen in supernovas of beauty, soul, and specialness.
Hahaha ... I lied. If you haven't already gotten word, this drama with the passion of Tennessee Williams (or is it a black comedy?) is actually a mesmerizingly shitty chunk of epicness. In fact, it's been nicknamed "The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies" by no less an authority than Entertainment Weekly.
