Hammer responded by pointing out the hypocrisy of calling out one age gap when Woods himself is no stranger to them. Even without James' stamp of approval, "Call Me by My Name" received huge applause at the Toronto Film Festival.
However, Ben Travers from Indie Wire also points out that, "Viewers need to be well-versed in "The Room" to fully appreciate "The Disaster Artist", which derives its entertainment value from a self-awareness that lurks beneath every scene".

The Disaster Artist was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber and is based on the book from Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. The film also stars Seth Rogen, Sharon Stone, Hannibal Buress, Jacki Weaver, Melanie Griffith, Zac Efron, Alison Brie and Megan Mullally.
