Save Dakota Fanning!

Tuesday, July 12, 2005


SO: The other night I was watching one of my favorite movies, Vanilla Sky, and feeling rather inquisitive sofaras wanting to see what sort of foreshadowing they laid down.

At the beginning of the movie there's a dream sequence, with a panicked Tom Cruise running through an empty Times Square. There are several single-frame images, too quick to see with the nekkid eye, so I paused the DVD and started clicking through a frame at a time. There are shots of TC's character's father, of Courtney Love (a little later in the movie his secretary tells him that "Courtney Love wants to know if [he] got her email!"), of the fictional magazine that his character runs, Rise (very Maxim-esque) ... and also, at 3 minutes and 51 seconds, a very quick, single-frame shot of the fictional magazine that made his character's father a fortune, TV Digest (which we later find is ironic, because his father never owned a teevee, and blah blah blah).

And guess who our lovely, slightly provocative in a sweet-and-innocent-way cover girl is?

KatieKate Holmes.

I'm positive it's a coincidence, but ... what if it isn't? What if he's had this plan for YEARS? I mean, it would fit in with that Scientology manifest destiny crapola. And also, creepy -- this was the film set where he met Penelope. Maybe because she LOOKS like "Kate"?

Just thought I'd share.

  • You are completely overlooking the biggest Vanilla Sky connection.
    In the movie, Tom's character lives in a certain famed NYC building, The Dakota!

  • Meanwhile, the real Tom Cruise could never live in the Dakota...the co-op board wouldn't have him in a million years...He is not exactly John Lennon or Diane Keaton...
