If “You’re tearing me apart, Lisa!” hasn’t become a staple in your stable of relevant cultural quotes, then you aren’t a relevant member of the culture. Take that. You should see this cult classic at least once, just so you can say you’ve personally experienced the absolute silt of art’s age-old duck pond. It’s been dubbed by many the worst film in the history of cinema. It not only reorients but transcends the so-bad-it’s-good paradigm. The Room is, at root, a San Francisco love story. Johnny, played by the iconically awful Tommy Wiseau (who also wrote, directed and produced the film, bless him) is deeply in love with Lisa, who’s cheating on Johnny with his best friend Mark. God, this piece of shit is utterly, utterly senseless, and features memorable scenes like this one. Just please make sure you have a designated driver when you go to see it at midnight tonight at the Apollo Theatre in Oberlin. Tickets are $5. (Allard).
