No other film has made me this curious in recent memory. Escape From Tomorrow was actually filmed in and around both Disney World and Disneyland without permission from The Walt Disney Company. They went in there and shot the film all "guerrilla style" while somehow managing not to attract attention to what they were doing. I guess when you're at Disneyland your only concern is how can I cut in line to ride Indiana Jones again... Who cares about some weirdo family running around saying strange things into a camera, right? Ain't no one got time for dat.
How they filmed it is definitely pretty damn interesting. Especially since no one else will probably be able to get away with doing something like that again, but the best part is that the film actually looks pretty fucking good, and I for one can't wait to see it. Check out the trailer and synopsis below...
The most provocative film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW should not exist, and yet it does. Like nothing you've ever seen, Randy Moore's directorial debut is a bold and ingenious trip into the happiest place on earth.
An epic battle begins when a middle-aged American husband and father of two learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses. Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt his subconscious. An idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Chillingly shot in black and white, ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture's obsession with mass entertainment.
It's set for limited theatrical release on October 11th, with an On Demand release on the very same day.
