6. Johnny’s surprise party in The Room

The terrible vegetable platters and pretzel bowls, the inexplicable sheep-like compliance of the crowd as they file in and out of the room to ‘get fresh air/cake’, the fact that one of the guests has breast cancer and doesn’t seem to actually care about it – this has to be the most depressing party ever. Who are these people with their slack-jawed smiles and inability to emote appropriately? What happened to their brains?

Then what has to be the worst fight in the world breaks out over a ridiculous soap opera love triangle and the birthday boy storms off. It’s just so bleak and surreal for everyone involved – like a dream you might have after falling asleep while watching Twin Peaks.

It’s also a really bad movie.
