I laughed and I cried.
I was honestly shocked by how hard this film hit me. I really sympathized with Tommy, and I think that might be the film's greatest strength. Any favorite moments?

To be honest, I knew going into it that I was probably going to cry in the end. The movie's finale, where Tommy watches his movie, literally had the audience laughing and crying at the same time. It perfectly encapsulates the conflict we all feel between making fun of Tommy and sympathizing with him. What a flood of emotions.

I'll probably have to see it again before I decide on favorite moments. Watching it felt like a blur-- the whole time, I could barely believe I was finally seeing this movie. Plus I read the book, so I knew a lot of what happened. My one complaint is that the damn thing is too short. There could've been another hour of the movie's production and I wouldn't have gotten bored. Those scenes were just amazing.
Yeah, I totally agree on the length. While the thing was paced very well, the Room fanboy in me wanted to see even more of the insanity of the production. I remember my one complaint in the pre-screening being how Alison Brie's story got cut too short. Was that an issue for you, or do you think it wrapped up well? I'm really curious to see what actually got changed in the final version.

In the book I remember that Amber had a whole arc where Tommy gradually chipped away at her sanity, and it was really funny. It added a whole different layer to the story, since it made us think about how he looked through her eyes. Plus it contributed to the narrative that women find him creepy and weird. I agree that she should've had more scenes.

I'm hoping they release a director's cut with at least an extra half-hour of footage. Unlike with "Zaddy," the movie is still perfectly coherent despite the truncated runtime, though it would definitely be even better with more scenes about the actual production.

Did you read the book? Jed's reading it for the first time and he's been emailing me about it.

I actually haven't. I was planning on reading that and Game of Thrones this year, but my schedule has been so tight that I never got around to it.

James Franco probably deserves the Oscar this year. He carries the film entirely on his shoulders, though the other actors hold their own as well. I would love for a two to three hour director's cut to become a reality.

I'm a bit conflicted on the ending, though, in that it feels mildly disingenuous the way the ending of Saving Mr. Banks did (of course this film handled it in better but it did feel contrived). Other than that I think I loved the film. Probably a B+/A-.

Did anything change from the screening you saw earlier in the year?

Almost nothing. They gave a little more closer to certain characters, and added better music. But honestly, that's about it. It felt shorter too, but that could just be me.

I've been putting off writing a review until I can see it a second time. Honestly, I agree with a lot of their points. But I get the feeling that some of these complaints only apply to people who've read the book.
