"CPR Clean Pretty Reliable: Played painfully straight. Phil discovers the old man suffering from cardiac arrest, so he takes him to the hospital, where he dies. In a hospital. Later on, he saves him by performing CPR in the streets, and he wakes up perfectly fine. "

It's been a while since I saw the movie but I'm almost certain that this is totally incorrect. The whole point of the sequence is that no matter what he does the old man still dies.

The scene is sort of ambiguous to me as to if the CPR does any good, but Your Milage May Vary.

Ambiguous, yes. He might not even saved the old man. It may simply be the next loop.

EDIT: Watched it again. I think it didn't do any good.
