    Dec 14, 2001 · Think it all the way through, and Cameron Crowe's "Vanilla Sky" is a scrupulously moral picture. It tells the story of a man who has just about everything, thinks he can have it all, is given a means to have whatever he wants, and loses it because--well, maybe because he has a conscience. Or maybe not. Maybe just because life sucks. Or maybe he only thinks it does. This is the kind of movie ...

    VANILLA SKY is a trippy mind game movie about a rich, successful, handsome, but superficial man named David (Tom Cruise), whose life turns upside down when he meets a woman who stirs him (because she is "guileless"). But then he must pay the price for his casual negligence. A woman becomes jealous, and drives them both off an embankment.

  8. Vanilla Sky is a frightening, sad and touching movie, actually one of the best I've seen in a while. I was surprised by how I was affected watching it. It's hard to explain, but during the movie your feelings towards the characters and your perception of what is going on changes and it's quite an emotional journey.

    Filming

    Principal photography for Vanilla Sky began in late 2000 and lasted six weeks. On November 12, 2000, shooting for the scene of the deserted Times Square in New York took place in the early hours of the day. A large section of traffic was blocked off around Times Square while the scene was shot. "There was a limit on how long the city would let us lock everything up even on an early Sunday morning when much of NYC would be slow getting up," said Steadicamoperator Larry McConkey. "Several times...

    Music

    See main article: Music from Vanilla Sky. Aside from the opening sequence featuring the song 'Everything In Its Right Place' by Radiohead and selected works by Icelandic group Sigur Rós, the musical score for Vanilla Sky was composed by Crowe's then wife, Nancy Wilson, who previously scored Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous. Wilson spent nine months working on the film's music, which was done through experimentation of sound collages. "We were trying to balance out the heaviness of the story wi...

    According to Cameron Crowe's commentary, there are five different interpretations of the ending: 1. "Tech support" is telling the truth: 150 years have passed since Aames killed himself and subsequent events form a lucid dream. 2. The entire film is a dream, evidenced by a sticker on Aames' car that reads "2/30/01" (February 30 does not occur in the Gregorian calendar). 3. The events following the crash form a dream that occurs while Aames is in a coma. 4. The entire film is the plot of the book that Brian is writing. 5. The entire film after the crash is a hallucination caused by the drugs that were administered during Aames' reconstructive surgery. Crowe notes that the presence of "Vanilla Sky" - the morning reunion after the club scene - marks the first lucid dream scene, and that everything that follows is a dream.
