The Silence of the Lambs

Character mistake: A SWAT officer gets the go-ahead to use his Browning HP to shoot an unconscious Lecter (actually Pembry) in the leg to immobilize him. he fires the pistol extremely close in proximity to his face, something a real officer would not do, as the motion of the slide would harm or burn his face and he could very nearly go deaf.


Character mistake: When the scientists cut open the cocoon found in the throat of a murder victim, they are not wearing gloves even though Clarice specifically states that it was found behind the soft palate of a murder victim.
