Consensus: Conceptually audacious but only intermittently successful in execution, Escape From Tomorrow is nonetheless visually inventive and darkly surreal.

It feels much like a theme park itself -- really exciting at first, but then your senses are dulled, and eventually you just want to go.

'Escape From Tomorrow'. An overtly sexualised mid-life crisis through the mind of a bored man. Admire how it was filmed. The result, /shrug

Escape From Tomorrow built a wave of buzz coming out of the Sundance Film Festival, namely because it was a bizarre, psycho-sexual little indie film shot… More
