Escape from Tomorrow (2013)

Director: Randy Moore. Cast: Roy Abramsohn, Elena Schuber. 90 min. Rated R. Fantasy/Horror.

Middle-aged guy vacationing with his family at a Disney World resort hears he's been fired from the job, and goes into a psychotic mid-life crisis, metaphorically blasting the Disney corporation. There are stories about how the filmmakers used guerrilla techniques to film at Disney World without Disney's permission, which inherently rise the viewers' expectations. But the film does not live up to those expectations, and I found the movie's final act exaggerated and repulsive, no matter how much distaste you feel for corporate America. At least Disney has put a smile on quite a few faces around the world.
