A self-indulgent and vain publishing magnate finds his privileged life upended after a vehicular accident with a resentful lover.
The film opens with the song "Everything in Its Right Place" by Radiohead. Chorus of the song is "Yesterday I woke up sucking on a lemon" - These words relate directly to Brian Shelby's sweet and sour speeches.
Open your eyes.
Sofía: Open your eyes. Open your eyes. Open your eyes. Open your eyes. Open you...
Where David points to the mole on Sofia's chest, you hear her chuckle (and the closed captioning says [Chuckling]. However, her facial expression remains completely unchanged and the chuckling was clearly dubbed in.
There are no opening credits for the film.
Three parts from the quick montage at the end of the film suggest scenes cut from the final film: two frames from a scene that was in "Abre Los Ojos" (upon which "Vanilla Sky" was based) where David shoots a police officer in front of the L.E. building, a frame of David and Sofia on a bed where Sofia is wearing a bathrobe (she never wore a bathrobe in the film), and a frame set in David's company where David is a kid, sitting on a couch, and a man (possibly Thomas Tipp) is talking to him).
