Responsible for some of the worst critical reviews of all time, but with brisk DVD sales and status as an underground cult classic, audiences can’t seem to decide whether The Room — written, directed, and starring filmmaker Tommy Wiseau — is brilliant or an abomination. Centered on a love triangle between banker Johnny (played by Wiseau), his wife, and his best friend, the film is filled with non-sequiturs and abandoned plot threads. Whether an example of avant-garde outsider art or simply an awful movie, you just have to see this one.

Boom for real was a catchphrase Basquiat said when something really wowed him. It’s impossible to believe that anyone seeing this film won’t walk away feeling inspired; the film is a boom, for real.
