Escape From Tomorrow isn't just one of the best movies I've seen this year, it's one of the most important. It's a phantasmagorical examination of the insidious nature of corporations co-opting our dream space, and it's a guerilla attack on the Walt Disney plastic happiness-industrial complex. It's funny and weird and smart and is one of the most subversive and dangerous movies of the last few decades.
It's finally getting a release this October, and the first trailer gives you a glimpse at the film - not a particularly accurate glimpse, if we're being honest. Escape From Tomorrow is very surreal and very arty, and this trailer makes it look a touch more action packed than the actual film is.
Escape From Tomorrow isn't for everyone, but I do hope it's for many of you. It's a daring, intriguing film that is on the front lines of the current war against brands and corporations owning our lives. It's thrilling to watch a movie as gonzo as this one.
