Aro Recommended Open Your Eyes


aka: Abre Los Ojos
Spain 1997, 114 minutes
Dir. Alejandro Amenabar
In Spanish with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Science Fiction, Suspense/Crime / Fantasy

Topics: Mind-bender.


Aroview: A surrealistic nightmare unfurled with Hitchcockian precision and irony, Eduardo Noriega plays a young-man-who-has-everything whose whirlwind affair and disfiguring car crash become strange chapters in a fate, identity and reality that has become bent out of recognizable shape. Rewarded for its dramatic and technical finesse with seven Goya Awards (Spanish Oscars), its gorgeously set-up and multi-layered even if it does get bogged down in the third act by its own high concept. The 25-year-old writer-director also contributes an evocative score. Remade in the US as VANILLA SKY.
