I am on Amazon to order the Blu Ray format with the alternate endings (I have the original on DVD). There are few films I want to watch repeatedly, and this is one. The original release of the film was around December 2001, not long after the 9/11 tragedy. I lost a friend that day in the World Trade Center, and when I first saw Vanilla Sky in the theaters it stirred up a lot of emotion being set in NYC, in particular scenes with David Ames on top of the building overlooking Manhattan and beyond (I won't describe the scene further to give anything away). I just found the film emotional and moving with the visuals, the soundtrack and the story itself. There are some really cool scenes; to see David Ames standing in Times Square without a single soul around is a haunting but beautiful image. The scene of him tearing out of The Dakota in his vintage sports car to Radiohead's "Everything In Its Right Place" is a great opener. The soundtrack is impressive too (Radiohead, Sigur Ros, The Chemical Brothers, Jeff Buckley, Red House Painters...). I never get tired of it; it is a sensory thing; my brain likes it!

Alternate version when added in looked like it was straight from the film real or a crappy VHS. Glad they decided to keep out all of the alternate and deleted scenes in the theatrical version. Still love the move but the bluray quality is blurry in some spots and just not worth the what seemed like years and years of waiting for this on bluray.

Vanilla Sky is one of those films that lingers in your mind after viewing,It is the story of a rich arrogant man (Tom Cruise) who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth due to his father leaving him a publishing empire.It is also about the consequences of his actions,and about not being careless with people.In making a decision to get into a car with someone David (Cruise)ends up paying one hell of a price when his life is altered forever,in the process he loses his good looks,he loses the woman he loves Sofia (Penelope Cruz)and almost loses his empire as well as his mind in the process.I realize that this film is based or inspired by a spanish one called Abre los Ojos i unfortunately haven't seen it so i will not compare both films,what i will say is that Vanilla Sky is in my opinion a rare film that makes the viewer think and feel many things..I highly recommend it for anyone that has not yet seen it.

Telling anyone much about the movie would ruining the experience but I still can't watch Vanilla Sky with out wondering what if...

I've seen the film several times since it's release and it never gets old. How many movies can we really say that about? Highly under Rated film that shouldn't be over looked. If you're looking for something that isn't a typical Hollywood mesh of goo and are willing to watch a movie that requires a second, or third, maybe even fourth look, then you've found it.

He played this part just right, a little bratty, but still so cute a likable. So much depth and very human (complicated part), this movie really is a masterpiece!!! Love all the characters, Penelope is better in this version and so is his friend and Cameron Diaz. This is an amazing plot which makes you really think about how one mistake can really change a life and if things are so bad, is it better to live in reality or a dream? The chemistry between David Aimes and Sofia is undeniable!!! Skip the European version and just watch this. One of my favorite all time movies, awesome plot !!!!!

Depressing as it gets, but a good tale.Crowe can do that, produce and direct a likable movie.I worked with Tom Cruise on Risky Bussiness and this character is a lot like the real Tom Cruise let drive when mad, not at all a cool idea for sure.e.As far as the story goes it is a scary premise to have a girlfriend who drives a car when mad at you.

Movie is a 5 star movie
This Blue Ray release is terrible. No effort whatsoever has been put into it. The box is extra cheap and flimsy with grainy print on the DVD. And the menus are a joke. Injustice to this fine film with truly excellent actors and cameos throughout and a great and interesting script.

I loved this movie and it was fascinating to see the alternate ending. The film quality is not as clear Hi definition as the rest , but let's you know when they have put back the scenes. I also liked the deleted scenes feature and the commentary by Crowe,and Wilson for the whole movie.

Touching movie, something someone who lives any lifestyle can relate to any of the individual characters. Especially Tom Cruise. Twisted movie, made me tear up. Something I can for sure relate to and gives me more incentive to make wise decisions.

Alternate ending sucks. Don't buy just to get that. Other than that great movie!
