When Disney Met Marx...

Perhaps the best demonstration of what Marx meant by alienation (Entäusserung):

Modern bourgeois society, with its relations of production, of exchange and of property, a society that has conjured up such gigantic means of production and of exchange, is like the sorcerer who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world whom he has called up by his spells.
Communist Manifesto, Chapter 1
