In real life, I'm polite and nice all the time. It's fun to play people who aren't. It's escapism.
As a form of escapism, yearning for the 20th century is understandable, but in practice it would be horrible - sort of like going on a holiday promising yourself you could go without the Internet, only to crumble and walk in a daze to the local Internet cafe to gorge on connectivity.
I sell escapism.
A great book provides escapism for me. The artistry and the creativity in a story are better than any drugs.
You know, going to the movies has always been recession-proof. It's fairly cheap entertainment; it's classic escapism.

Music can be a source of escapism.
Danielle de Niese

I think escapism is really important.
I was a big fan of John Cassavetes, his wife, Gena Rowlands, and that era of filmmaking which was about realism and which represented the antithesis of the dreamy escapism you found in musicals.
