tommy wiseau documentary

Tommy Wiseau, the filmmaker behind the 2003 cult film The Room, has spent years dodging questions about his age and nationality – and a court has ruled that he went a step too far to protect that information.

It was mostly a hilarious way to promote the new movie Best F(r)iends Vol. 1 that he made with The Room co-star Greg Sestero. Now that the movie is coming to home video, they’re digging into Batman again, but they’re really upping the ante this time.

Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero got together to recreate the pivotal interrogation scene from The Dark Knight. Wiseau again plays The Joker in an unsettling way while Sestero suits up as Batman, which is somehow even more goofy. It’s just something you need to see to believe. Read More »
