Really liked this movie!
One of the first mindfuck movies! Also one of the first in a trend of foreign movies being remade in the U.S. mere years after their release. Other examples: Insomnia, The Ring. In this case, Vanilla Sky was dope too tho.
this is fukn awesome. i didnt realize that i was watching the original till the car crash. it was amazing and also makes more sense with this cast and is more believable acting
Great film..definitely watch this over the original, which is pretty bad.
Very good ! Makes me want to watch the remake again ! This one was really good though !
