The Room is a independent film written, directed by, and starring Tommy Wiseau. It had a limited release in 2003.

Plot

Johnny and his fiancee, Lisa are living together in San Francisco. Johnny's best friend, Mark, is having an affair with Lisa behind Johnny's back because Lisa finds Johnny boring. Meanwhile, Lisa's mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer, Johnny acquires a top secret client at his bank job whose identity he's sworn to protect, and Johnny's other friend, Gerald, diagnosis Lisa as a sociopath, prompting Mark to almost throw him off a roof. The affair is exposed at Johnny's birthday party. The events lead Johnny to commit suicide, causing Lisa and Mark agony over what they have done.

Production struggles

Director Tommy Wiseau sent a copy of the acclaimed film to Paramount Pictures, and they scathingly returned the copy within a week. Also, Wieseau eagerly sent his masterpiece to the Academy Awards, in the hopes that it would win in Oscar. This wonderful movie, because of the rational, conservative values it promotes, did not win such a prestigious award. This speaks volumes about the film industry's liberal-friendly Hollywood values. Also, the film was independently made, and the patriotic Wiseau financed the whole film himself, as he had become wealthy through the hard work and determination that our free market economy rewards generously. It's clear he did not have support from the liberal movie industry, and every one knows that liberals hate an underdog.[1]

Analysis

The film is a moral lesson on the dangers of living in sin and adultery. Had Lisa and Johnny not lived together, Lisa would have never been bored with Johnny until after they were married. Had Mark not had an adulterous relationship with Lisa behind Johnny's back, Johnny would not have committed suicide. The film underlines how your selfish actions can hurt others more than you realize.

Legacy

The film has a mere 33% percent on Rotten Tomatoes, but this is due to the fact that Hollywood critics initially misunderstood the film due to their liberal biases. The film is now recognized for the masterpiece it is by most rational moviegoers. By acknowledging that Wiseau's film is a work of art, liberal critic elitists would basically admit their morals are shaky at best. Countless classics received low or mixed reviews in their own time because liberals can't recognize quality when they see it.

Cinemas all around the world screen it, as moviegoers finally have embraced its wonderful acting, dialogue, directing, and universal conservative values. Many bring their families, especially young children, as an introduction/reinforcement of Christian family values. The film is enjoyed all the same by non-Christians as well. A conservative is one who adheres to principles of limited government, personal responsibility and moral virtue.
