Tommy Wiseau in The Room

Film editor Sven Pape, the guy behind the YouTube channel This Guy Edits, has put together a video essay in which he breaks down a scene from Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic “The Room.” In the hilarious clip, Pape pokes fun at Wiseasu’s scene blocking and the narrative of the movie, which has been dubbed both “the worst film ever made” and the “biggest cult film from the past decade.”

The scene in question takes place towards the middle of the film, when a disillusioned Johnny (Wiseasu) finds his best friend Mark (Greg Sestero) on the rooftop of his building. Johnny confides in Mark that he’s having problems with his fiancée, Lisa (those who have seen the film know that Lisa is cheating on Johnny with Mark).
