Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: As with many films set in New York before 9/11, it depicts the Twin Towers standing. The end of the film has David [[spoiler: hurling himself off the top of a New York skyscraper]], which took on a darker resonance after many people in the Twin Towers did the same thing.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The ending is set to an early version of Sigur Ros's "Untitled 4/Njósnavélin". It also plays Radiohead, PtaulMcCartney and Jeff Buckleys lyrical dissonance "last goodbye" fits perfectly for it's part being played.

* RewatchBonus: Stacks and stacks of {{Foreshadowing}}, among other things. RogerEbert even went so far as to admonish prospective viewers not to try to analyse the film until after they'd seen it twice.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: While the film is ambiguous about how much sympathy Julianna deserves, the fact that she genuinely loves David to the point of killing herself earned her ''a lot'' of sympathy from the audience, as well as the fact some people thought that Sofia isn't really particularly interesting. This couples with the fact that Julianna isn't really an obsessive stalker like her original counterpart Nuria (all of the stalker-ish actions is done by her dream form), ''and'' she is portrayed by ''Cameron Diaz'', who has much more acting experience than Nuria's actress Najwa Nimri and Sofia's actress Penelope Cruz as well as arguably outshines Cruz, and you might have a clear picture while Julianna ended up being the one the audience root for.

* MoodDissonace: The "Narm" line below may be funny for viewers. On the other hand, the fact that it's coming out of a clearly unstable woman recklessly driving a speeding car with David in the passenger seat may also produce some other feelings.
