Vanilla Sky


USA 2001, 136 minutes
Dir. Cameron Crowe
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction, Suspense/Crime / Fantasy


Aroview: A straight Hollywood remake of the Spanish sci-fi thriller OPEN YOUR EYES by the director of ALMOST FAMOUS – the result of which plays like the awkward, mutant progeny of both (superior) films.

Maybe passable ‘entertainment’ for those that haven’t seen the original but even then, the pop music that saturates the soundtrack is as incongruous and distracting as the presence of Tom Cruise, Jason Lee and Cameron Diaz.

The complicated plot may be easier to follow without the subtitles, but for a wholly more authentic, unsettling experience (and Penelope Cruz speaking her native tongue) we suggest you to check out the original film...twice.
