Randy Moore‘s Escape from Tomorrow will be remembered for how it was made. Future discussions will revolve around its legality, and how Moore managed the task in the first place. But when it comes to the actual picture, Moore works incredibly hard to come to a simple and fairly uninteresting theme. Every time Moore hits a strong moment, he’ll continue to repeat that emotion and duplicate the event until it’s an absolute chore. The movie can be absolutely bonkers, but its strangeness eventually feels like a gimmick rather than a hook.
