In the end, this hard-to-classify film ... is little more than a cheap parlor trick.
December 10, 2001
As pretentious as it is preposterous, Vanilla Sky needs its own wake-up call.
December 13, 2001
Insists on spelling things out, and the more we know about the supernatural direction the movie takes, the less interesting it is.
December 30, 2001
A combination of various successful players/styles has resulted in a nice looking art house-look big budget mess.

The film, whether they like it or not, is about being beautiful and then losing it. Hollywood's penultimate nightmare.

The important question isn't "What's going on?" but "Why should we care?" Vanilla Sky, unfortunately, can't come up with an answer.

It's not really a bad film -- it couldn't be, given the high level of talent involved -- but it is a rather pointless one.

Vanilla Sky's forecast is not looking very sunny at this point in Cameron Crowe's murky psychosexual drama

Terminally silly and pretentious.
September 23, 2002
An interesting failure... in a perverse way, while Vanilla Sky certainly doesn't stand up to Crowe's still-fresh masterwork Almost Famous, it does confirm his directorial prowess.

Imagine watching Tootsie for 100 minutes and then finding out that Dustin Hoffman was really an alien

Imagine if someone remade The Others...with Casper the Friendly Ghost. That should give you a pretty good idea what Cameron Crowe has done with Vanilla Sky.

This romantic psychological/sci-fi thriller is pretty to look at but basically empty inside.

December 25, 2001
Convoluted and by turns mind-bendingly playful and annoying, Crowe's psychodrama is full of good intentions.
