On Tuesday, creator of The Room, a film known to be the Citizen Kane of bad movies, did a Reddit AMA to help promote his new Hulu series, The Neighbors.
Here are some of the best quotes about his former masterpiece, The Room, and his plans for the future. (Note: He makes a lot of claims about his work that have not been independently verified by BuzzFeed.)
The cast of The Room rehearsed regularly for six months.
He apparently cut a scene that included a flying car as a joke:
Wiseau thinks of The Room as a "red flag for society":
Oh yeah, we have many Claudettes in the country, with cancer — Many Claudettes in America relate to cancer...Many Dennys, many Johnnys, many Marks, because everything is coming from life, real life. THE ROOM is a red flag for society, for people to do better, to be better to each other basically. I've been doing this for 12 years, saying that.
Speaking of Claudette: Don't worry, she survives.
On what the character Lisa from The Room represents:
GREAT Question! First of all, you can compare Lisa to Eleezabeth Taylor, to when she did CLEOPATRA. The ladies, they don't have to wear jeans, they can wear dresses to be very powerful. So Lisa's character is very powerful. She represents American society. So that's my answer. Move on, next one!
