First scene: impressive. The following hour: Cruise-isms abound. Do they really have to show us for half of the film how superficial the main character's life is? As for the story: it plays like a bubble-gum version of Eyes Wide Shut. (Including masks, fantasy-women, confused rich Cruise and obscure murder...)
I know it's just a remake. VANILLA SKY almost offered nothing new in its plot except - in terms of aesthetic & bigger production value. I kinda agree with a guy on Quora about his thought on this movie. He said: It speaks of ethereal love that makes life seem like a dream, a dream which all living beings strive to make it a reality. This movie has a secret charm that gives me a mixed feeling about it. A great movie!
Heu... 1 ou 5 étoiles? Science fiction? Film d'amour? Enquête policière? What the fuck was that? Pffff... ok, c'était un film intéressant pour plein de raisons différentes. On comprend mal où ça s'en va. Certains personnages sont CRAZY (Cameron Diaz, really, ayoye!). On parvient difficillement à avoir de la sympathie pour le personnage principal, mais c'est possible, à quelques rares moments. Bref, film intéressant.
3.5* A truly strange, confounding and often unsettling film. It’s insane that this was the biggest movie of its day. I love that Crowe went for it— like, really went for it—, often yielding mesmerizing results. But there’s a lot here that doesn’t work, sometimes verging on self-parody. The final 20mins are best representative of that. Either way, Vanilla Sky is a fucking experience. And to me, that has immense value.
