Escape from Tomorrow (★★ Review)

EscapeFromTomorrowSquareIt’s an ingenious idea: sneak cameras into Disneyworld, and covertly shoot a film in which The Happiest Place on Earth becomes a psychotropic nightmare for an unhinged father of two. Perhaps only a mind such us Tim Burton, David Lynch or Charlie Kaufman could deliver on such a tantalizing promise; Randy Moore’s effort is a noble failure, compromised by some wobbly acting, monochrome photography (Disneyworld in black and white?!) and a lack of follow-up ideas. It would have made a killer early episode of Mad Men; as it is, it’s a woefully squandered opportunity, in spite of its ambition. ★★
