Vanilla Sky

Tom Cruise gets an awfully disfigured face playing a man with looks, wealth and social status who suffers a horrible car accident. After the ordeal, things don't quite seem right as illusion and reality become tangled. Co-starring Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Kurt Russell, Timothy Spall and Tilda Swinton. Directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous), adapting 1997 Spanish film Open Your Eyes which also starred Cruz.

Crowe’s tantalizing film sticks with you.

A middling Tom Cruise vehicle as far as the general public is concerned, "Vanilla Sky" will surprise buffs for being a virtual scene-by-scene remake of the 1997 Spanish feature "Open Your Eyes" (Abre los ojos), albeit with a distinctly different tone.

Now that I've seen it twice, I think I understand it, or maybe not. Certainly it's entertaining as it rolls along, and there is wonderful chemistry of two quite different kinds between Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz on the one hand, and Cruise and Penelope Cruz on the other.
