'Escape from Tomorrow' is a film that shouldn't be possible -- not just because it was filmed without consent at Disneyworld in Florida, but due to the sheer audacity of some of the (not always successful) ideas and visuals on display. The film follows Jim White, a middle-aged guy on vacation with his wife and two kids at the happiest place on earth. On the last day of vacation, Jim finds out he lost his job, an event that sends him into a spiral that's part mid-life crisis, part psychosis. 'Escape from Tomorrow' subverts expectations with its near-psychedelic transformation of Disneyworld from place of joy and comfort to hellish landscape of evil.
Escape From Tomorrow
Summer is over and, as Ned Stark would say, winter is coming. But, there's no reason to despair: the best stretch of the year for movies is right around the corner. The summer may offer the year's biggest films, but the fall tends to offer the best
Earlier this year, 'Escape From Tomorrow' premiered at the Sundance film festival to a great deal of acclaim and surprise. Acclaim because it's apparently pretty compelling. Surprise because almost the entire film was shot at Disneyland and Disney World guerilla-style without the park or anyone from the Disney corporation knowing. Threats of legal action have led to the film laying low for most of the year, but it looks like the instantly controversial film has officially secured a release.
The 2013 Sundance Film Festival has barely even started and a potentially controversial and unreleasable film has already reared its head. That film is 'Escape From Tomorrow,' a tiny indie that was filmed almost entirely in Florida's Walt Disney World...without permits. While Disney lawyers descend upon Park City, you can watch a clip from the instantly infamous film below.
