The Disaster Artist (2017)
The dreams of the fool-hearted are still dreams nonetheless. The Disaster Artist examines what that means for most of us. To have dreams, but not being able to achieve them.
Greg Sestero and Tommy Wiseau are two of many, who want nothing more than to make great movies. Movies that people love and remember. And while the two of them couldn’t be more different from one another, they’re brought together by those dreams.
The Disaster Artist, much like The Room, will make you howl. The madness of it’s legend is on full-display and often times bested by it’s modern day adaptation. Dave and James Franco are fully-committed and fearless in their performances, but Zac Efron as Chris R. will show you why you owe him lunch money.
But through the asscracks, the waterbottles, footballs, and personal toilets, do we manage to peer into the heart of the film. The story of Greg and Tommy. Two dreamers and fools, who together made a film that neither one could have made themselves, and now are forever tied to. Perhaps it wasn’t the dream they were looking for, but it’s still a dream, nonetheless.
