I mean it's not the most complicated thing ever, but that bit does expect a certain amount of cine-literacy and for you to be paying attention.
The sad thing about Cruise doing all his own stunts is that I doubt the film would look a whole lot different if he hadn't, what with the digital face swapping they can do (kind of ironic they don't do that in a series where characters do it all the time).
On the skydive sequence they digitally inserted a new backdrop anyway so it probably would've looked identical if they'd just shot it with greenscreen in a wind tunnel. I suppose it makes for good behind the scenes footage though.
I always thought PYT is a highlight on thriller! The stodgy ballads are the low points in my opinion.
"What's with these female directors who direct something acclaimed and then disappear forever"
Male privilege bruh.
