Adam Rosen has edited a series of essays about the greatest bad/good film ever, The Room. A cult phenomenon (I've personally attended one of its Los Angeles Rocky Horror Picture Show style screenings), this movie is objectively problematic, but subjectively extraordinarily entertaining. It is surreal, earnest, hilarious, nonsensical, confusing, and just straight up great. Adam and I discuss buying the film from what is likely Tommy Wiseau's alter ego Raoul, how the movie is the film version of your first time having sex, Adam's personal relationship with the actor who played Chris R, and what he's learned from watching the film 20 times.

The book is "You Are Tearing Me Apart, Lisa!: The Year's Work on The Room, the Worst Movie Ever Made (The Year's Work: Studies in Fan Culture and Cultural Theory)" - available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/product/0253062721?ie=UTF8&linkCode=as2&tag=indiunivpres-20 You can also find Adam's website here: https://www.adammrosen.com/
