Vanilla Sky Voted Most Confusing Film Ever

'Vanilla Sky' has been voted the most confusing film ever made.

The 2001 movie - which starred Tom Cruise and his ex-girlfriend Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz - topped a poll run by DVD subscription firm LoveFilm as fans found the plotline difficult to understand.

The film - which was directed by Cameron Crowe - told a surreal tale of a wealthy publishing heir, played by Cruise, who, after a car accident leaves him horribly disfigured, begins to suffer from a series of strange hallucinations.

David Lynch's 'Mulholland Drive' came in second place while 'Donnie Darko', which was directed by Richard Kelly, was third.

Other films in the top 10 included 'The Matrix Revolutions', 'Memento', 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' and 'A Clockwork Orange'.

Helen Cowley, of LoveFilm rental, said: "It's clear dreaming is the biggest cause of confusion for viewers.

"Switching from reality to dream sequences pulls the wool over our eyes."

The top ten most confusing films of all time are:

1. 'Vanilla Sky' (2001)

2. 'Mulholland Drive' (2001)

3. 'Donnie Darko' (2001)

4. 'The Matrix Revolutions' (2003)

5. 'Memento' (2000)

6. '12 Monkeys' (1995)

7. 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' (2004)

8. '2001: A Space Odyssey' (1968)

9. 'Revolver' (2005)

10. 'A Clockwork Orange' (1971)
