Out of all the works of art to explore the intangible relationship between men and women, not a single sampling of cinema delves quite deeper than Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. It’s been called the Annie Hall of the 21st century for a reason; this 100-minute masterpiece explores complicated interpersonal issues with a mastery of existentialism that hasn’t been seen since Sartre’s No Exit. Of course, Tommy Wiseau didn’t stumble upon these epiphanies alone; with the assistance of his friend Peter the Psychologist — who plays himself in The Room under the pseudonym “Kyle Vogt” — this modern-day philosopher held the mirror up to society and revealed the nightmarish facades we each hide behind.
As much as we’d like Tommy Wiseau to lend his artistic genius to our humble little blog, the auteur is perpetually on the road, showing The Room to those who have managed to elude its brilliance. But after some tense negotiations, and a five-dollar donation via PayPal, we managed snag his partner in crime for a guest spot on Garbage Duck. If you have a burning issue in your life than can only be handled by a competent professional, submit your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll have Peter tackle these problems once he gets a minute free from staring directly into the human soul.
