What a ride

I watched this movie when it first came out and for some reason felt the need to watch it again. I'm not a big Tom Cruise fan and I didn't consider myself to be a big Penelope Cruz fan. I say this for a reason. When I watched this movie, I literally fell in love with Penelope Cruz. Truth is Tom Cruise is an amazing actor and Penelope Cruz is an amazing actor as well, but this movie still manages to fall under the radar. With a title like Vanilla Sky, you forget it's actually a love story. More so, it's a movie that is built around decisions and the consequences of good and bad decisions. It's not a movie you watch while multitasking, but more so a movie you give your full attention and figure out as you go along.

A great display of love, affection, decision and reality... well kinda reality...

beautiful and heartbreaking

As some other reviews mentioned, this film is so underrated. This is such a beautiful and heartbreaking love story besides the discussion about life and others. The film delivers the sentiments in a very exquisite, artistic, and refreshing way.

Even as a female viewer, I feel Penelope Cruz is heartbreakingly beautiful in this film, especially in the central park dream scene.

A must watch Psychological thriller

Vanilla Sky is an American Psychological thriller movie released back in 2001. The story of the movie revolves around and is focused on the life of David Ames played by Tom Cruise who is inherits his father's wealth. One day at his party he is introduced by his friend to Sofia Serrano with whom David falls in love with at first sight but at the same time he is avoiding Julie Gianni who supposedly has a thing for david because of their shared past together. Following some incidents the next day, David and Julie together meet an car accident which mutilates his face and after waking up up from comma he discovers that Julie died in that car accident. All of this is story told by David to his Psychologist in Jail where he is convicted for Julie's death. David has trouble remembering the incidents of the past and various incidents from different time period and with him we are set on a quest on finding out the reason why Julie died.

Vanilla sky was an absolute treat an individual who enjoys cinema and whose favourite genre is psychological thriller. However movie does lack in a little visual department as movie could have been a little bit more dramatic with darker tone as everything just appears so normal that the viewer might forget he actually is watching a movie. As story progresses a lot of twists happen which can throw audience wondering and shocked. Unlike many other psychological thriller there is always one maniac with their own ideology and thoughts but David as a protagonist discovers his own different identity due to memory loss. Many memories of david are changed or replaced by himself for which movie hints multiple times at human's subconscious and how dangerous it is. Acting in the movie is something that has to mention as Tom Cruise totally nails it as an guy with disfigured face.



For some reason the first part of the movie is great but later for which david is having remembering issue is addressed very poorly as movie completely changes its tone from Mystery psychological thriller to this Science fiction setting and such transition will obviously not be appreciated by most of the audience however i liked it but people won't because it was not executed properly and most of the time went in establishing character of david in 1st half of the movie itself. Vanilla sky in the end becomes one of those movies which had great and unique concept for which it is expressed very nicely but later half brings it down and for that reason the next time someone asks me to suggest them an psychological thriller movie, I won't definitely suggest them Vanilla Sky and the reason is that because I love this movie for what it is no matter how much I criticize it and if someone else complains about it, I won't be able to take that. The ending is of movie is totally like many great films where you are given answers and are left to wonder and imagine story according to yourself. And yes I do recommend it.
