Writer/Director/Producer/Star: Tommy Wiseau
"The Room is the quintessential cult film, one whose excess and eccentricities become the cinematic equivalent of an alien trying and failing to assimilate among humans. But it’s also a film that’s genuinely mesmerizing, that earns each of its repeat viewings." - Vox.com
"A bona fide classic of midnight cinema, Tommy Wiseau's misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. You will never see a football the same way again." - Rottentomatoes.com
"To make a movie that's so bad it's good you need vision, drive, luck and obsessive vanity. Fortuitously, The Room's writer/producer/director/star Tommy Wiseau appears to possess all of these qualities, combined with a total lack of acting talent." - Steve Rose, Guardian
"If there is a 21st-century Edward D. Wood Jr., it is probably Tommy Wiseau." - Jason Bailey, Flavorwire
