Vanilla Sky film ‘baffling’

TOM CRUISE’S movie Vanilla Sky has proved to be a mission impossible — after cinemagoers named it the most baffling movie of all time.

The 2001 film, which also stars Penelope Cruz, finished just ahead of the David Lynch film Mulholland Drive.

Third place in the poll went to Donnie Darko, the sleeper hit starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

Late director Stanley Kubrick’s films figured twice in the top 10 with 2001: A Space Odyssey at number eight and A Clockwork Orange at 10.

The poll was conducted to mark the release of the new movie Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio which has also left many fans struggling to get to grips with the plot.

Its British director Christopher Nolan sees his film Memento at number five.

Others that made up the top 10 included: Donnie Darko, The Matrix Revolutions,12 Monkeys. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Revolver.
