LAMBADA

The Room is the cult classic that is widely considered to be the best bad movie ever made. It’s mind-bogglingly awful, yet painstakingly produced – it was not a lazy project by a disinterested hack. It was a full-fledged $6 million production by a desperate, unrelatable maniac.

Because of this, the entirety of the $6 million was funded by writer/director/star Tommy Wiseau. How did an obviously insane Eastern European man come up with that kind of money? Nobody has a goddamn clue. He had no wealthy relatives or successful business ventures that anyone knew about. He simply showed up one day with a bag of crazy money and a bigger bag of crazier ideas. He’s stated in interviews he got the money from Korean yo-yo and pleather jacket distribution, but that’s more a pile of strange words than a business plan, and he’s been so misleading and cagey about his past that nothing he says can be trusted.

The mystery surrounding the money has sparked a number of conspiracy theories, and they are batshit insane, but not as insane as this man having a perfectly ordinary backstory. Castmates have alleged in interviews that Tommy had mob connections in San Francisco, and he amassed his fortune doing favors for them. Others have taken things a step further, alleging that Tommy Wiseau is actually D. B. Cooper, the famous plane hijacker who stole $200,000 then jumped out into the stormy nether below. Was he never seen again, or did his head hit 25 different trees and turn him into Tommy Wiseau?

The Bizarre True Stories Behind 6 Crappy Movies

Às vezes no silêncio da noite, eu fico imaginando: que graça teria a vida sem música? Sem ela não há paz, não há beleza. Nos dias de festa e nas madrugadas de pranto, nas trilhas dos filmes e nas corridas no parque, o que seria de nós sem as canções que enfeitam o cotidiano com ritmo e verso? Quem nunca curou uma dor de cotovelo dançando lambada ou terminou de se afundar ouvindo sertanejo sofrência? Quantos já criticaram funk e fecharam a noite descendo até o chão? Que atire o primeiro vinil quem jamais caiu na contradição de dizer que odeia rock e cantarolar “We are the champions” no chuveiro após ser promovido. Tudo bem… Raul nos ensinou que é preferível ser essa metamorfose ambulante do que ter aquela velha opinião formada sobre tudo.
