    This is a real coin flip- They’re both amazing for VERY different reasons

    I couldn’t get past the first 15 minutes of The Room but I loved Room. Easy win for me.

    I view The Room as escapism. It’s the kind of movie I watch to get away from reality. I enjoy the so-called “So Bad It’s Good” films because they are outside of conventional entertainment. The Room has a point of view unlike typical motion pictures.

    Room is a more conventional film, but it depicts reality in a moving way, as opposed to many films that just go through the motions. I think The Room is a better as far as being the product of an askew personal vision. Room is better because the performances don’t just feel like contrivances to move the plot along. They feel like real people.

    So, it’s a tough call.
