「楽しみは後回し？」 愛する彼女を取り戻すことが出来たと主人公が喜びに浸る場面には、幻想的なインストロメンタルのオリジナル曲 Nancy Wilson の Elevator Beat が。
「一体どうなっているんだ…」 彼が悪夢と現実の狭間に陥ると、The Monkees の Porpoise Song が流れます。 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds を想起する、濃厚な60年代テイストが伝わる曲です。 （原曲を聴くとミスチル等に影響を与えている様にも感じます）
「君は誰だ、顔を見せろ…」 相手の胸元のホクロによって、自分が誰を●してしまったのかが解る場面は、映像作品ならではの秀逸な表現。 イントロのギターフレーズが極めて印象的な Joan Osborne の One Of Us（1995年）、そこから再びの Porpoise Song を経て、1978年のヒット曲 Todd Rundgren の Can We Still Be Friends へのメドレーへ。 その間の随所にも、効果音やフラッシュ・バック映像が巧みに挿入されて…。 映像と音楽の見事なまでのコラージュには、何度鑑賞しても鳥肌が立つ程の戦慄を覚えます。
「救護員！」 ラスト前の重要な局面展開では、The Beach Boys の Good Vibrations ！
5つ星のうち5.0Complicated story with a great soundtrack and some nice cars
This film has a complicated story and I had to watch it a couple of times before I really fully understood it. Not your run of the mill Tom Cruise film and for the most part not a cheerful film. The film has a great soundtrack which is available on CD. There's also some really nice cars in the film but sadly none of them get driven like they were stolen, more's the pity. Not least there is one really funny scene that I found memorable and worth the price of the film alone - when you see it you'll most likely agree.
I have tried several times to watch this film, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz being two of my favorite actors but it does not hold my attention long enough I don't have the stamina to get to the end and the 3 leads just don't gel with each other, the dvd will sit in my cupboard for ever unwatched.
I'm really not a Tom Cruise fan but he is more than bearable in this movie, which is a remake of A Spanish language movie (Open Your Eyes). It's quite difficult to say which is the best version. Vanilla Sky probably wins on the evocative choices of music used in the soundtrack and the unforgettable New York dream sequence where our Tom is the only person in an eerily empty Times Square.
This is sci fi with a heart, as it is really just a love story with a twist....and as it features Penelope Cruz as the love interest, that's a good enough recommendation for many.
It says 2 disc but l only found 1 disc. l’m not sure about image wether is clear or poor but it’s okey. Arrived sealed and in good condition. After l bought this with 18 GBP l found another price with 11 GBP.
