Given his status as America's top male sex symbol, there's a perverse irony to Tom Cruise's virtually simmer-free performances in would-be erotic thrillers like Eyes Wide Shut and this Cameron Crowe remake of Spanish director Alejandro Amenábar's Abre los Ojos (Open Your Eyes). But if Crowe stops just short of delivering another undercooked holiday Tom turkey, his vaunted early career as boy-wonder rock writer--and the help of frequent collaborator Danny Bramson--informs the film with an exceptionally rich and eclectic pop music score that leans heavily on unreconstructed psychedelia. Such was the Crowe-Bramson reputation that they secured original songs by no less than R.E.M. (the jangly pop of "All the Right Friends") and Paul McCartney (a playfully obtuse title track that would otherwise be a standout on any modern Mac album), wrapping them in one sublime surprise, original and otherwise: Sigur Rós's hypnotic "Svefn-g-englar," the gorgeous languor of "Have You Forgotten" by Red House Painters, star Cameron Diaz debuting as a singer (under the name Julianna Gianni) with Crowe and wife/film scorer/Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson in Wilson's equally dreamy "I Fall Apart," the Monkees' psychedelic "Porpoise Song," Radiohead's "Everything in Its Right Place," Jeff Buckley's "Last Goodbye." Constructed as the playlist of some strangely liberated FM broadcast that never was, this soundtrack is also a collection that proves that the best part of any turkey may well be the stuffing--sonic or otherwise. --Jerry McCulley
