Book Review: The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made
Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell

The Room. Not everyone has seen it, but many have probably heard of it. A 2003 independent film directed, produced, and written lead actor Tommy Wiseau, The Room’s story concerns a love triangle between three friends. Johnny (Wiseau) is a kindly, middle-aged banker engaged to the untrustworthy Lisa (Juliette Danielle). Out of boredom, Lisa decides to ensnare their misguided friend, Mark (Greg Sestero), in a passionate affair in a move that will destroy their circle of friends. Meant to be taken as a heart-wrenching drama on par with Shakespeare’s tragedies, the film’s bad acting, bewildering script, and atrocious dialogue was met with howls of laughter worldwide. Although a flop at the box office, it developed an impressive cult following, and ultimately led to Sestero’s decision to write a memoir of his experiences. Hilarious, and at times, surprisingly sad, The Disaster Artist is a wildly entertaining memoir that will definitely appeal to fans of The Room.

Learn More About Your Banking Options at Bank on Birmingham Events to Be Held at Birmingham Public Library Locations in September and October

A sound understanding of banks and banking plays an important part in assuring one’s personal financial health. Acquiring such an understanding, however, takes some time and effort. In the world of banking, there exist different kinds of institutions offering a variety of accounts, products, and investment opportunities. But it is not a matter of one size fits all; which banking services are suitable for you depends upon your particular circumstances, needs, and goals. Therefore, in order to make good decisions about banks, you should try to get good, solid information about what is available so that you can compare their offerings with your priorities.

Bank on Birmingham (BoB) is a local non-profit organization that was created to provide information to the public about banking products and services. The membership of Bank on Birmingham, which consists of both local financial institutions and community organizations, is particularly interested in reaching low and moderate income consumers who have been underserved by the banking industry. Through advocacy, education, and outreach, BoB strives to make better banking awareness a catalyst for increasing the financial self-sufficiency of individuals and families in the Birmingham area.

As part of its educational initiative, Bank on Birmingham is holding a series of Snack and Learn events at several locations of the Birmingham Public Library during September and October of 2014. Two similar events will be held at Community Education South. These events are scheduled to last about an hour and BoB representatives will be available to share their knowledge on a variety of topics including banking, credit, budgeting, identity theft, home ownership, and small business finance. Light refreshments will be served. Both adults and older youth are encouraged to attend.

The Snack and Learn events are free but registration is required. You can register online on the Events Calendar page on Bank on Birmingham’s website or at the library location where the event is being held:
