5.0 out of 5 stars Look Closer Nov. 18 2006
A lot of folks didn't get this movie, or at least could not relate to it. But it's not all too difficult a thing to understand. This movie is a great mind-trip, entertaining at that. It is acted well, it is shot well, it has a great blend of real-time action and surrealism and a phenomenal soundtrack. But it all really is quite powerful if you get through its surface. It challenges you to ask yourself what reality is, what happiness is, what the difference between meaning and superficiality is and how your mind truly does control the universe around you. Well I saw all that in it anyhow. And yes, one more time, the soundtrack is phenomenal. I do believe this is one of Cruise's best films. He took the sane-guy gone mad role a little too seriously in life, but here it shines along with a stellar supporting role from Jason Lee. Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mind Bending March 25 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is very interesting as it takes you through a journey of an damaged person's psyche. It can be little difficult to follow and understand but the more you watch it, the more you are able to pick up and piece together the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindtrip Oct. 31 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I normally don't like Tom Cruise films but this one grabbed my attention when I read the storyline.
Acting was fanominal. Romance, hope, love, suspense, murder... all wrapped into one.I loved the futurism in this film. The possibility of being cryogenically frozen to continue life in the future...facinating. This film continues to be one of my most very favourite movies to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing film that could have been stellar June 26 2004
I have watched Vanilla Sky three times now, and every time it has left me powerfully affected. It deals with many topics that interest me, particularly the study of dreams vs. reality, and the nature of relationships, and love. There is much that is very good about it, however it contains one major flaw that prevents it from being truly great.
The acting, is overall top notch. Jason Lee turns in yet again another stellar supporting role; he radiates charisma in this performance, and fits the role given perfectly. Cameron Diaz is a fine choice for Julianna, she brings an almost maniacal sense of urgency to her character that was both disturbing and complusively watchable; she simply looks amazing on film. Tom Cruise performs more than adaquetly as well, and perhaps the greatest kudos must be given to Penelope Cruz, who simply lights up the screen here. Her charisma is unmistakable, and she infuses this film with life and vibrancy. This is a film with many powerful images, be it the gorgeous vanilla skies that soar over New York within the dream, or the (SPOILER) unforgettable image of Cruise's David Aames waving farewell to his disfigured reflection in the mirror. It entices in the first viewing, draws you in irresistably, and apon further viewings still moves with great pacing, and many subtle clues and hints can be found that help the viewer understand the nature of David Aame's reality. My only real complaint is that Cameron Crowe for some inexplicable reason (though it certainly must have been because of confused test audiencies, those who this film is not intended for anyway) chose to come out at the end of the film and blatantly reveal all of the films secrets and twists; he talks to the viewer as if we were 5 years old and need him to hold our hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars An engrossing mind bender! Oct. 11 2010
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
The engrossing Dec/2001 film Vanilla Sky is quite the psychological mind bender and it never lets you get too comfortable.Just when you think you see through it all,it switches gears and leaves you scratching your head.I'm not a Tom Cruise fan per se',and while I do think his caliber of work has been spotty over the years,I do have to admit when he does something that is appealing and this is one of those times.
Vanilla Sky is about one David Aames(Cruise) who is heir to a %51 share of his fathers publishing company in New York.He is quite the recalcitrant when it comes to the business end of things,much to the eternal chagrin of the board members he must grudgingly work with and who comprise the ones with the remaining %49 share/control;or the "seven dwarfs" as he refers to them.He is young and is enjoying life and has surrounded himself with quite the coterie of friends and hanger-ons.One of the latter is Julianna(Cameron Diaz)who,while a good sexual encounter,harbours deep resentment that David does not understand;yet.His friend Jason(Brian Shelby),a book writer whom he sponsors,introduces him to Sofia(Penelope Cruz) one evening at a party David has thrown and an instant connection is established between the two.
A jealous and uninvited Julianna has shown up at the party and follows David when he takes Sophia home.They sit and talk into the evening hours and when David leaves,Julianna is there to greet him.She talks him into going for a "drive" but the drive soon turns into a terribly invective rant against David and how he treats her and others.Suicidal,Julianna ends up going through a bridge railing and down into the street below.She is killed while David barely survives.His face is left horribly disfigured and he has to undergo constant therapy for injuries to his left arm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Cruise Catastrophe
This film stars Tom Cruise.
Sadly, that statement condemns the watcher to over two hours of flat characterisation, empty purpose and hollow feelings. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Rent this movie
This movie is a horrible movie. It makes no sense. just when you think you are getting it, it all of the sudden takes a twist in a whole new direction. Horrible movie.

"Vanilla Sky" is a remake of the Spanish film "Abre Los Ojos (Open Your Eyes)", and if you have seen the original film, you know that "Vanilla Sky" was made almost in the same way,... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!!
hmm...I wonder what makes all these people say that Vanilla Sky was a horrible movie? Perhaps it's the fact that they did not or could not understand the film. Read more
