Best F(r)iends Volume 1 Tommy Wiseau

Best F(r)iends
Written by Greg Sestero
Directed by Justin MacGregor
Starring Tommy Wiseau, Greg Sestero, Kristen StephensonPino, Vince Jolivette, Paul Scheer, Rick Edwards
Lionsgate | Rated R
Release date (Digital & OnDemand): September 25, 2018

Fifteen years ago, a cult classic of epic proportions was born. Tommy Wiseau wrote, directed, produced, and starred in The Room, a film that would earn the moniker of Best Bad Movie of all time. Thanks to his co-star and friend Greg Sestero’s 2013 memoir The Disaster Artist and the James Franco Oscar-nominated film of the same name, Wiseau and Sestero have enjoyed a career resurgence. Their on-screen reunion takes place in the new film saga Best F(r)iends, written by Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor.

Best F(r)iends will inevitably be compared to The Room due to Sestero and Wiseau’s involvement. However, as a film it is much better, with a cohesive plot, well-defined characters, and genuinely engaging interactions. It does feature some truly bizarre and original moments, and thanks to Wiseau’s off-beat acting style, there is a lot of humor, both intended and not. While I don’t think Best F(r)iends will garner the reputation and midnight-movie following of The Room, fans of the actors and that film will not be disappointed.

Interview: Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero

Back in 2003, Tommy Wiseau’s name became one of legend, but not for the reasons he originally wanted. His film The Room, one which he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in, simultaneously became known as one of the worst films of all time by critics, but a cult classic to fans. In the 15 years since, Wiseau’s film has enjoyed a consistent presence in midnight showings across the country. His friend Greg Sestero was his co-star in The Room and in 2013 Sestero wrote The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made with co-author Tom Bissell. That was then turned into an Oscar-nominated film directed and starring James Franco as Wiseau and his brother David Franco as Greg.

Fresh off a new generation getting to love and appreciate The Room, Wiseau and Sestero reunited for a project, written by Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor called Best F(r)iends. Best F(r)iends is about a homeless loner (Sestero) who stumbles into a bizarre friendship/partnership with a mysterious mortician (Wiseau). I got to speak to both men about their upcoming film, their on screen reunion, and more.
