Vanilla Sky (2001) ending / spoiler
Vanilla Sky

Everything that happens to Tom Cruise after he collapsed in the street is really his Lucid Dream, an additional option for those who sign up for Life Extension (L.E.). Julie's "return from the dead" was actually a glitch in the Lucid Dream caused by Tom Cruise's guilt over Julie's death. Kurt Russell is just a character in the L.D. What REALLY happened after collapsing on the street was that Cruise never saw Sofia again, he regained control of the company from the Seven Dwarfs, signed up for the L.E. and killed himself by taking a lot of pills. The tech support guy tells Cruise that he's in suspended animation and in order to wake up he has to jump off the building. He says good bye to Sofia and Jason Lee. Cruise jumps and wakes up from his suspended animation.

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.
