random observation

I was watching Vanilla Sky last night and realized that the premise is very similar to one of my favorite films in the entire universe Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Both films revolve around a protagonist who is emotionally disturbed by a recent event involving heartbreak. The protagonist finds no other solution other than either erasing their ex-lover from their memory or freezing themself and reliving a fantasy world that expels only desire. See the similarity?! Okay, this may be a far stretch, but the bridge is actually short – at least in my book.

Sidenote: Vanilla Sky is based off a 1997 Spanish film called Abre Los Ojos, also starring Penelope Cruz.
