I don't care what it says it is. I don't care what it ACTUALLY is. I care how much it entertains me.

It is in effect lying to you. The fact that it still entertains people is a testament to the power of getting the surface level details right. But I think that may be delightful, yet fleeting.

If I tell you a fable, which seems to suggest the opposite lesson of what it's supposed to be about, that's fine simply because it's entertaining?

As I know you are a fan of The Room, I'll say this, from my point of view. I enjoyed The Room just as much as Shawshank Redemption. Both for completely different reasons. But as far as enjoyment goes? They are both the same.

The Room isn’t lying to you.
