5-11-2018 MOVIE REVIEW: THE DISASTER ARTIST (2017)

James Franco stars in and directs this dark-comedic, biopic on famed cult director Tommy Wiseau and the making of his 2003 drama film "The Room" -hailed by critics as quite possibly the worst film ever made.  Franco's younger brother Dave gives a memorable performance as Tommy's best friend Greg Sestero who wrote the book "The Disaster Artist" on which the film is based.  Wonderfully paced; Franco protrays Wiseau's struggle for success as something all of us can relate to.  ***(1/2)
