There might not actually be a single tear shed during Tommy Wiseau's performance in the cult classic, so-bad-it's-good movie The Room, despite the fact that he's clearly supposed to be crying during the film's climax. Wiseau's Johnny is at the end of his rope in the film's final moments. His girl has left him, his best friend hates him, and the life he thought he had has proven to be a shallow mirage (this movie really is, as Paul Scheer once said, "Tennessee Williams put through Google Translate"). And in his rage and grief, he destroys the bedroom he once shared with his fiancée Lisa, sobbing as he does it, finally taking his own life.
The problem is that, as anybody who has seen the film can attest to, Wiseau's acting prowess resembles that of an alien asked to replicate human behavior after watching two episodes of Days of Our Lives. And while his flailing about the room, smashing a TV, and throwing clothes everywhere, is over-the-top enough, it's his bizarre guttural wailing that really makes the scene horrifically awkward. Johnny's cries seem to come from some undiscovered muscle buried deep in the throat. They sort of sound like cries, but we never actually see tears. Instead, we just have to sit through this bizarre sound that's very nearly crying but not quite fully there. It's horrifically surreal to watch but, then again, that's The Room's whole deal.
