''Vanilla Sky'' is a 2001 psychological thriller starring TomCruise, and adapted and directed by Creator/CameronCrowe. It is a close remake of the original Spanish ''Open Your Eyes'' (''Abre Los Ojos'', Alejandro Amenábar's second film), with the interesting fact that Creator/PenelopeCruz played the same character in both movies.

* GoodCopBadCop: When David begins to become rowdy and aggressive during his first session with McCabe, the supervising police officer in the next room comes inside and yells at him, before the mild-mannered McCabe intervenes and asks him to leave, before resuming his line of questioning. David lampshades the "good cop, bad cop" approach immediately afterwards. [[spoiler:Makes sense: the entire encounter is part of David's dreams which he's constructed from the popular culture he's experienced - of course the cops act like the cops in the movies, because he ''expects'' them to.]]

* AllJustADream: An unusual example, in that different interpretations of the film tend to boil down not to whether the film is [[spoiler:a dream or not, but rather to how ''much'' of it is.]] The most basic interpretation is that offered by [[spoiler:tech support: after the nightclub scene, David never saw Sofia again, signed a contract with Life Extension and put himself into a coma in which he dreamed the events of the latter half of the film. The bizarre occurrences were glitches due to his repressed guilt over Julianna. In the end, David decides to wake up from the dream.]]
