What the Critics Say:
“‘The Disaster Artist’ is primarily a pedestal for the ultimate James Franco performance — it’s his Lincoln.” — Vulture
“Just as Johnny Depp gave his career-best performance as Z-movie auteur Ed Wood, Franco achieves what could become his most iconic role.” — Variety
“Franco’s movie is ultimately a chronicle of the genesis of great art — namely a work even its creator didn’t fully understand, and whose popularity few could have ever imagined.” — The Atlantic
