The funniest film ever made, but probably not on purpose

This weekend, LUC screens The Room, a legendary piece of cinema that has been described as ‘Completely Bonkers’, ‘A Cult Phenomenon’ and perhaps most tellingly ‘The funniest film ever made, but probably not on purpose’.

The room plus fb flyerThere really isn’t anything else like The Room, the vision of a singular director, writer and star Tommy Wiseau – a mysterious figure both on-screen and off. To say this is a bad film is a bit like saying that Harold Shipman was a bad doctor – it might be technically correct, but it is understating the matter to a spectacular degree.

After watching the disturbingly erotic opening 15 minutes (probably through your fingers) The Room provides an unironic cavalcade of bizarrely pointless plotting, nonsensical dialogue and very, very small games of American Football.

Centred around a tortured love triangle involving rose-obsessed bum-displayer Johnny, his bored sociopath girlfriend Lisa and his over-declared best friend Mark, The Room fails in every conceivable manner and as a result is one of the most entertaining film going experiences around.

This is a film to shout at, laugh at, converse with and to throw plastic spoons at, but as Tommy Wiseau himself says: “You can laugh, you can cry, you can express yourself, but please don’t hurt each other.”

Wise Words.

Prepare yourself for THE ROOM on 23rd September

The room 1000pxBefore the LUC Festival 2014 kicks off on the 7th October, we’ve got a couple of cool events to help you warm up. On Thursday 25th, Film Bingo is back at The Cask & Bottle, bringing you the chance to win £50 for being good at spotting films. Prior to this, on Tuesday 23rd September for one night only at The Zephyr Lounge, The Masochist Film Club presents THE ROOM.

A cult phenomenon of piss-poor film-making, The Room is so irretrievably strange and inept in every possible way that it has become an essential viewing experience.

Regularly playing to packed out midnight screenings of plastic spoon flinging enthusiasts, this movie is the work of Tommy Wiseau – a writer/director/actor with a singular vision and an even more singular accent. The plot revolves around a supposedly dramatic love triangle – but that takes a back seat to scene after inexplicable scene of terrible acting, bizarrely confined sporting activities and watch-it-through-your-fingers smooth love action. Oh yes.

Tickets for the screening of this truly amazing film are just £4 and can be purchased in advance online or on the night. Doors open at 8pm – it could be busy so get down early to avoid missing out!
