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.

Whether an example of avant-garde outsider art or simply an awful movie, you just have to see this one.
