The Disaster Artist: You Are Tearing Me Apart, Lisa!

Up-front caveat: If you haven’t seen “The Room,” go watch it. Then come back to this post.

In case you ignored that instruction and are still reading ignorantly, “The Room” is widely considered to be one of the worst movies ever made — and it’s wonderful. Also, insane. Even more wonderful was the fact that one of its stars, Greg Sestero, wrote a tell-all book in 2013 about everything that happened behind the scenes; “The Disaster Artist” shows that the insanity captured on the screen was only a glimmer of everything happening behind the scenes.

This week, Emily and I read “The Disaster Artist” and discussed what its revelations mean for our shared fandom of “The Room.”
