Dorian Gray picture

Continuity mistake: 21 minutes and 30 seconds into the film, Dorian enters Cibyl's dressing room holding his hat and what seems to be the program to the performance (that he has just watched with Cibyl in it).

Dorian did not sit down anywhere or go near anything that he could have put the "program" down on to be picked up again a few seconds later. (00:21:30 - 00:22:00)

The Road picture

Other mistake: As Viggo Mortensen narrates, it's been years since every crop and animal has died. Trees have been dead so long they're rotting where they stand and falling over with a stiff wind or slight tremor. Yet, in the woods, there are always fallen leaves on the ground which ought to have long ago decomposed, rain or no rain. Obviously, they can't sweep out the whole forest to make a movie.
