Unusual scenes of the movie “The Room” were presented by a well-known actor in his film “Disaster Artist”. James Franco. Funnily enough, Franco’s work was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Without a doubt, people who have seen The Room before will enjoy Disaster Artist. And for others who want to go to the cinema to see Franco’s latest film, I’d suggest making up for Wiseau’s work in advance. That it would make the uncontrollable fits of laughter during The Disaster Artist show more frequent. Third – I’m afraid that without prior preparation, some people just don’t buy Franco’s character Wiseau. As if the creators had her in mind during the end credits, they’re getting close. of scenes from The Room with their counterparts from Disaster Artist. Here again, praise must be given to Franco and his collaborators. In places they even manage to create episodes worse than they originally were.” Interia reviewer, Jakub Izdebski wrote.
