Vanilla Sky

Continuity mistake: When the panel of doctors are being queried by Aames, for the second time of the loop of this interview, the black box containing the mask can clearly be seen in the bottom right hand corner on the desk when the camera swings to the main doctor. When the camera pans back again, it is gone, and it is only after this that the assistant brings in the box.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tom and Penelope are lying together on her sofa there is a table to the left with a lamp and some wooden artists figures. These move position between shots, with different things happening with their arms.

Visible crew/equipment: When Tom Cruise is standing alone in the hall at the ground floor of the LE building, screaming for "Tech Support..." the camera pans around him 360 degrees. When the camera pans over Tom's left shoulder, you can see the shadows of the camera crew on his jacket. After the panning has come to a stop, you can see the reflection of two or three crew-members in the glass walls behind him.

Question: Does anyone know the name/artist of the song that plays near the end of the movie when David (Tom) is about to jump and while he is falling? I was thinking Ladies and Gentlemen we are Floating in Space by Spritualized, but it turns out that's from a different part.

Chosen answer: It's from an Icelandic band called "Sigur Ros", and it is not on the soundtrack (although another one of their songs is - one from earlier in the movie). It's from their 2002 album titled "()" - yes two parenthesis, it's on track 4, but is an untitled song. You can get the album on Amazon.com or in any Borders or Barnes and Noble.
