The Room is a movie that is infamous in many circles. This is primarily because of the way it was released on video, and the very strange road that its plot took to get there. But why has this movie worked so well and what did it actually do to put it in the realm of popular movies?
English is a strange language. It can have different meanings from one English speaker to another, and one who speaks it for a living may even be different when speaking it from someone else. In The Room, many different meanings exist for the word "room." For instance, it could mean an apartment, a college dorm, a room within the house, or an office suite.
But whatever the precise meaning of the word "room" in this movie, it will be used more than once throughout the movie. It will be used in its literal sense by characters, and it will be used as a metaphorical concept or subject in multiple other ways as well.
Perhaps most significantly, The Room is an animated film. Animated films are rare in movies these days, but these animated movies tend to be very clever and have very unique points of view.
Because of such elements of modernity, and because of the way that they are extremely difficult to make fun of in their basic logic, they make for great shows and make for great conversational vehicles as well. All of this can be attributed to The Room.
Viewing a movie like this is not an easy thing. Some people would rather just watch movies like The Terminator or A Few Good Men instead. Others would rather spend their time with completely unconnected projects, spending hours on end watching interesting television shows like Law & Order: SVU or NCIS.
Movies with audio are often less interesting to some people. For instance, The Room is an animated film with a certain type of voice, and a certain type of actor. Those two things are both problematic in this way.
However, those same problems can create an entertaining experience for those who seek out movies like The Room. As a matter of fact, The Room has become something of a cult classic. There are an average of over ten thousand people who have watched it at least once, and these viewers are generally very passionate about their enjoyment of The Room.
