Cleverly shot guerrilla-style in Disney's Florida and California theme parks, this offbeat thriller is an exercise in relentlessly inventive filmmaking, vividly proving that pure imagination can overcome a micro-budget.
It's not so much disrespectful to 'Uncle Walt' and his beloved creations as it is honest about the primal urges and shameful desires that motivated the myths and fairy tales that inspired many of Disney's more famous projects in the first place.
Less provocative for its assault on the false ideals of corporate-controlled family fun than its clever repurposing of many of the same German expressionist and gothic horror tropes that are at the root of much Disney iconography.
It's a fascinating hypothesis, entertainingly told, and we can forgive the script some of its narrative lapses as we admire the sheer chutzpah of the on-the-fly guerrilla filmmaking it took to complete the project.
Escape From Tomorrow is the kind of movie you watch with your mouth hanging open in disbelief of the ballsiness you're witnessing onscreen. A deliriously entertaining, you-gotta-see-it-at-all-costs motion picture experience.
This is not agitprop. Moore is not promoting a political agenda with Disney as his target. Instead, this is a filmmaker exploring the discrepancy between reality and the fantasy world Disney represents.
