Reviews [click links to read more]:

” …the moral tale of a shallow, greedy and selfish couple and the results of their ugly actions, but the lesson which “The Room” tries to teach us gets lost in all the chaos, as it goes so out of control at some point that not even the leads’ efforts, forced tension, or the cool, if limited setting, can’t save the film’s bold ambitions.” CineMarvellous!
