I will only say: "the face of a clown looks different under the moonlight".
Watch this film.
This film goes there AND THEN some. And then some MORE. And just when you thought it couldn't go further, it does. Not for the faint of heart, especially those who are offended by some pretty extreme and perverted visuals. Overall, though, this film is highly effective in its many goals, ultimately to talk into the "American dream" type of happiness that Disney specifically reinforces. A very unique and startling cinematic experience. Approach with an open mind with some caution about the vulgarity it contains.
Escape From Tomorrow is one of those films where the making of is more interesting than the film itself. Yes its true, the movie was shot secretly on location at Disney World & Disneyland without permission, and yes... that is very impressive! The movie itself though... kind of a mess. It has some interesting ideas and ambitions but it's so haphazardly executed that it feels like a missed opportunity. The characters are neither interesting or likable, the performances come off as amateur (given the way in which the movie was made that makes sense... but still), and the script is clunky, pretentious, and shallow. With such an interesting concept and filming method, this is a film I really wanted to like, but it ultimately comes up short. Not recommended.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
