The recording of "Anchors Aweigh" used in the film is performed by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra. The aircraft carrying Glenn Miller to Paris in December 1944 disappeared over the English Channel in what is often considered a "Bermuda Triangle"-type incident. See more »
Towards the end of the movie, when Jess prepares to drive off she puts the duffel bag containing her doppelgangers corpse in the trunk. During the accident scene, the doppelgangers corpse is laying on the pavement, no longer in the duffel bag. The positioning of the corpse in the road is deliberate, as Christopher Smith explains on the DVD commentary. The audience is meant to question whether the "doppelganger" has really been thrown out of the trunk and bag during the crash, or was in fact the "real" Jess who was driving - and therefore killed - in the "original" accident.

Oh you're just having a bad dream, that's all baby. That's all it was. Bad dreams make you think you're seeing things that you haven't. You know what I do when I have a bad dream? I close my eyes and I think of something nice - like being here with you.

I love this kind of braintwisting movies where turns are as less expected as possible and shocking. You are really pushed to pay close attention to all details in the movie, otherwise you can miss the "real" point in the story. This movie is quite confusing and easy to get lost in to, but the reward of successfully understanding all aspects and layers of the movie is well worth it (at least for me).
Are you bored with easy predictable story lines of 90% today's movies? Do you like mystery and something more than "common" life situations? Than watch this movie to shift the pattern of understanding the reality.
Have a nice loop ;-)
