I hope it's OK to start new threads here, given that I just joined. I recently re-watched the excellent Vanilla Sky film (2001) for the first time in years - incredible film. Very few films have moved & impressed me as much as this has - IMHO this a work of art, it's that good. Definitely my favorite Tom Cruise & also Cameron Crowe film. Excellent story & acting, and kept you guessing right up until the very end. Cameron Diaz as Julie Gianni deserves strong kudos for this movie, even though she wasn't in the film much - the scene when she picked up Cruise in the car & started off very nice & then got creepy with the "Do you believe in God?" line as she started driving crazy was quite terrifying.....great acting on her part, and very convincing. I think TC was fairly brave here to not rely on his "pretty boy" looks, like he had in previous films. The scarred face was tough to take initially, but obviously that was the whole point. Note, if you haven't seen the film yet - there are SPOILERS below; I'm not sure how to insert SPOILER tags on this board. I find the film somewhat of a morality play, but without being preachy: Though Cruise obviously emotionally hurt Julie Gianni & was kind of a louse when he stole Cruz away from the Jason Lee character (since they were best friends & he already had his pick of women), he did a good thing by re-hiring that company lawyer at the beginning party - this guy later stood up for him & helped him after the accident. Re: the ending, I haven't heard the DVD's commentary, but I feel this should be taken at face value: The Tech support guy (Noah Taylor) that Cruise sees in the elevator & who explains everything that's happened is telling the truth. Cruise has seen this guy throughout the film (at his initial operation & at the bar when he got everyone to stop talking & possibly another place). The cryogenics element was introduced early on in the film when Tom & Penelope Cruz are watching a TV show about Benny the Dog being frozen....IMHO, what confirms Noah's story is when Cruise asks the psychiatrist character (Kurt Russell) the names of his kids, he doesn't know....I think it's fairly self-explanatory....I have 0 interest in another interpretation of the ending because it really wouldn't make sense, at least not IMHO. I also like that the film ends on a very hopeful but uncertain note: Presumably Cruise has been in suspended animation for so long that he's been completely healed & looks as young as he did 150 years before; however, as the Tech support guy says, his finances are almost depleted...so, who knows what he will face... The soundtrack was obviously brilliant, and definitely enhanced the film to a great extent. Though I have the existing soundtrack that's out (with 17 tracks), I would really like to see a deluxe 3-4 CD soundtrack set with all of the music from the film, in the order in which it was played. There are so many understandable omissions on the existing soundtrack, i.e. Joan Osbourne's "One of Us", That Beach Boys song near the end, etc. I'm surprised something like this hasn't already come out, but since CD's are not as popular as they once were I guess I'm not surprised... That being said, the existing soundtrack is great, and I'm glad they included "Fall Apart", which was Julie Gianni's song & which I think Diaz sung....this poignant song is actually quite disturbing considering what Gianni did.
