Incarcerated and charged with murder, David Aames Jr. is telling the story of how he got to where he is to McCabe, the police psychologist. That story includes: being the 51% shareholder of a major publishing firm, which he inherited from his long deceased parents; the firm's board, appointed by David Aames Sr., being the 49% shareholders who would probably like to see him gone as they see him as being too irresponsible and immature to run the company; his best bro friendship with author, Brian Shelby; his "friends with benefits" relationship with Julie Gianni, who saw their relationship in a slightly different light; his budding romance with Sofia Serrano, who Brian brought to David's party as his own date and who Brian saw as his own possible life mate; and being in an accident which disfigured his face and killed the person who caused the accident. But as the story proceeds, David isn't sure what is real and what is a dream/nightmare as many facets of the story are incompatible to ...Written by
In the very beginning of the film, a whispering voice is heard: "Abre los ojos" (Spanish for "Open your eyes".) VanillaSky is a remake of a Spanish film titled Open Your Eyes (1997). See more »
Because of the way the story is set up, where David gets away from the cop who's minding him the audience should only be able to see and hear things that David could see and hear. But after he jumps into the elevator and the doors close in the pursuing cop's face, there is a very brief scene outside the elevator in which the cop pounds the closed doors in frustration and then hits the call buttons on the wall.

Three parts from the quick montage at the end of the film suggest scenes cut from the final film: two frames from a scene that was in "Abre Los Ojos" (upon which "VanillaSky" was based) where David shoots a police officer in front of the L.E. building, a frame of David and Sofia on a bed where Sofia is wearing a bathrobe (she never wore a bathrobe in the film), and a frame set in David's company where David is a kid, sitting on a couch, and a man (possibly Thomas Tipp) is talking to him).

A great version of the original . Bitter sweet , beautifully filmed , full of melancholy
The best thing about this film is the soundtrack , I got it when it came out because it has a new version of R.E.M's 'All the right friends' and I love that they use 'Sweetness Follows' . It just seems that films around this period really used songs well , similar to 'Cruel Intentions' in this respect
It's much maligned for some reason , but it's a visual feast and full of emotion with fantastic performances, especially from the female leads , Diaz and Cruz
