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.

The whole plot made me nauseated, the whole "father" following around some young female tourists was a bit terrible. The green screen scenes were out of place, and terrible.
But i did keep watching it, maybe it was to admire how they did it, but at the same time think about how easy it would have been. People record stuff all the time in public places, so who knows.
The acting is surprisingly good for something shot on the fly with secret camers. I expected the acting to be at the level of college short film but it the leads are good. There is actually a sense that this is a real family. But there are too many ideas, too many plot directions. Evil queens, secret laboratories, viruses, marital striff; it all caves in on itself.
Technically interesting, but not worth 90 minutes of my time.
Is this a film about the main character losing his mind in the world's Happiest Place? Or is his wife the one losing her mind, as the film occasionally suggests? Early on, when the added visual effects suggest the man is seeing characters from It's a Small Small World glare at him evilly, the film has a delightful visual flair. At that point you are wanting to know more about how the Happiest Place on Earth will turn on one of its guests. Unfortunately, the rest of the madness doesn't keep up with this early promise.
The visit to a first aid station mid-way through the movie drops the hint that cat-flu is going to play a role. When the final payoff comes for this foreshadowing comes, it's a real groaner. Not frightening, or even repulsive. Just kind of silly.
If you love going to Disneyland or Disney World, this film is an interesting curiosity. But if you're looking for a decent film about madness, look elsewhere.
I'll sum it up for you: dad is unhappy with his life and his marriage. mom is kinda frigid. dad chases after two underage french girls at Disney and pretends to be doing it all for his son. son catches on about this. mom and daughter are sort of unhappy that dad is chasing after two underage french girls. shot unnecessarily in black and white. save yourself the trouble. skip this movie.
