Critics reviews

How you respond to Vanilla Sky may depend on whether you saw Open Your Eyes—the Spanish fantasy thriller of Alejandro Amenabar that played here four years ago. I mainly liked Open Your Eyes, but I’d forgotten enough of the plot details and twists that I could enjoy Cameron Crowe’s slick remake.
