'Abre Los Ojos'
Director: Alejandro Amenábar
Stars: Eduardo Noriega, Penélope Cruz, Chete Lera, Fele Martínex, Najwa Nimri, Jorge de Juan
Indie cred: Budgeted at around $3 million
Why it's worth your while: Tom Cruise and Cameron Crowe liked this mind-bending tale so enchanting they decided to remake it as a little film called "Vanilla Sky." But the power of the original was hard to duplicate, a movie that charges ahead to a stunning ending that finally sheds light on the title (translation: "Open Your Eyes").
