Vanilla Sky

I recently watched Vanilla Sky again. I enjoyed it. I am not sure that it is a great film, but I am a sucker for movies that require you to use your judgment to try to separate the subjective reality of the movie from the more objective reality that would be the world in which the action occurs.

This is just such a movie. I also thought that the acting was superb throughout. In particular, I have to admit that Tom Cruise is almost always a more interesting actor than I expect him to be. With that in mind, my only question is what would the movie have been like if the soundtrack had been filled with Beatles tunes, as it was reported the director wanted to use? I would like to have seen that as well, but I think this is one of the best examples of science fiction where the technology is just part of the setting, rather than the reason for the story.

On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 89.
