Called “the immigration information that got past the media border guards,” Escape from Doncatraz is a stylish, post-modern, feature-length documentary that acts as a warning of what happens when a people provides a leader with absolute power.
With dark humour, this “science-fact B-movie” looks at how values have fallen apart in “Blair’s Britain” as the country has imprisoned itself on an island of controlled borders, its population made paranoid by a right-wing media whilst living under the watchful eye of the surveillance state.
Through interviews with numerous experts and adventures around the country and its continent, writer, director and producer Jay Baker examines the morbid fear of the foreigner amongst his fellow Englishmen, highlights the hypocrisies, and concludes by pointing the finger upwards at the rich and powerful, before ultimately giving them a filmic finger in an unforgettable finale.
