|Tommy Wiseau, from The Room|
The bizarre post-camp anti-masterpiece The Room is showing at Union South this weekend, at midnight on both Friday and Saturday nights. If you don't know what The Room is, I recommend reading this excellent Harper's article by Tom Bissell (subscribers only, sorry!), which I think does a great job of pinpointing why this awful cheap movie is so critically interesting, not to mention enjoyable to watch.
From the article:
"He tried to make a conventional film and would end up with something so inexplicable and casually surreal that no practicing surrealist could ever convincingly ape its form, except by exact imitation. It is the movie that an alien who has never seen a movie might make after having movies thoroughly explained to him."

Also, there's a new Dum Dum Girls track out from their soon-to-be-released album, Only in Dreams. Pretty excited to see these gals when they come to the High Noon Saloon in Madison on October 13th.

Amazing clip from The Room ("Let's play football!") after the jump...
