Escape From Tomorrow - Randy Moore (2013)


Recommended Posts


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.


Tourné en guerilla à Disney World sans aucune permission, il faut avouer que c'était assez bien foutu. Bon y'a aussi pas mal de trucages et d'inctrustation sur certaines scènes, mais dans l'ensemble le projet tient la route. C'est aussi très Polanskien dans l'esprit et dans la structure. Tout n'est pas réussi ou "propre", mais il y a de l'ambition et on sent que le mec a été castmember. Comme je l'ai été aussi, je peux dire que le film représente à peu près le cauchemar de tous les gens à peu près normaux qui travaillent là-bas
