Zane's Review of Vanilla Sky
I first watched this when I was 12 or 13. It was late at night at an age when I was unaccustomed to staying up late at night, and I was drifting in and out between Vanilla Sky and sleep. Since then, I had always been curious what the fuck happened in that weird movie that my sleepy middle-school mind simply could not comprehend all those years ago. I finally gave it the rewatch that it deserved.
It's too long and it wraps up too nicely. Those are my only two complaints (but they're not exactly tiny complaints). Otherwise, Vanilla Sky is a mishmash of two of my favorite films: Mulholland Drive and Total Recall. It's fantastic. And guys, Tom Cruise is the shit.
