Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero screened their new movie BEST F[R]IENDS volume 1 in New Orleans on Friday evening April 6 2018. Tommy has gained a large following and after the premiere of the Disaster Artist, a movie that tells the story of the making of the Room starring James Franco as Tommy – his following has grown exponentially. The movie is an interesting piece, while the Room received some poor reviews and was even labelled the worst movie ever made by some, this movie is different and I certainly liked it. Tommy carries the movie and I think that while in the Room he was trying hard to be serious about the acting, maybe he just tried too hard? In the BEST F[R]IENDS movie, Tommy i think is just being Tommy plain and simple and he is a funny guy. The movie is definitely quirky and certainly has all the elements of becoming another cult movie just like the Room eventually did. I have been told that due to massive amount of footage shot for the movie it had to be split into two volumes out of which this is the first volume. I can recommend seeing this movie, it is worth it – it’s good entertainment!
