Vanilla Sky (2001) Written and directed by Cameron Crowe from the film Abre Los Ojos. Tom Cruise as David Aames
David (voiceover): My dreams are a cruel joke. They taunt me. Even in my dreams I’m an idiot who knows he’s about to wake up to reality. I can only avoid sleep… and I can’t. I try to tell myself what to dream. I try to dream that I’m flying, something free. It never works.
