Corrected entry: Chris could not get the cotton into his ears by himself because he was tied up the whole time.


Correction: His hands were restrained, but his head was not. He simply leaned his head forward, closer to where his hand was located so could get the cotton into his ears. The cotton was shown in the hand rest, and his hands were restrained at the wrists, so could still move his hands in the area they are positioned in despite being tied down.

Casual Person

Corrected entry: Why does Rose's father throw away the man's brain if he is to transfer it into Chris' head?

Correction: He doesn't throw away the brain, first he throws the skin, then he throws the skull, he has the brain exposed when he calls for his son.

Corrected entry: The Armitage family transplants the brains of white people into the bodies of black people. But why is it then, that the black people sometimes try to "break through" their imprisonment? If their brains are fully transplanted then their whole personality should be completely "white" or destroyed. Where does this inner fighting come from?


Correction: They explained this in the film. "Transplantation. Well, partially. The piece of your brain connected to your nervous system needs to stay put, keeping those intricate connections intact. So you won't be gone. At least not completely. A sliver of you will still be in there somewhere. Limited consciousness. You'll be able to see and hear what your body is doing, but your existence will be as a passenger. An audience. You will live in... the Sunken Place."


Then it is a factual error, cause from the neurological point of view this is nonsense. The nervous system has nothing to do with the consciousness.


The film (or the correction) never said the nervous system controls consciousness. It's part of the brain attached to the nervous system that controls consciousness, such as the the cerebral cortex, or even the basal ganglia. However, there's never been a human brain transplant, or even a partial human brain transplant, so there's no way to claim factual errors as it's all speculation.


Corrected entry: Rod, the TSA agent doing his own detective work, searches for Andre Hayworth's name and a bunch of references come up including stories about him being missing for 6 months ("What happened to Andre Hayworth?" was at the top of the search results). He then goes to the police, tells them the story, and shows them the photo that Chris took of what appears to be the missing Andre. Why wouldn't he also show them the Bing page? Then they could compare the photo Chris took to the photos on the reference pages and they would've at the very least had to investigate instead of laughing Rod out of the precinct. (01:12:00)

Correction: They're police. They probably all know about Andre Hayworth already and Rod would know this. So why bother showing them the page? Do you think the police didn't already investigate the matter? It's in the news! They're more interested in seeing how much information Rod gives them to see if what he's claiming is credible. However, he begins to over-explaining and they rightfully assume he's just nuts.

Other mistake: When Chris is yelling for the keys from Rose, he inadvertently calls her by her real name "Al" [for Allison].

Question: Strapped to a chair. How does he manage to put the cotton in his ears?

Answer: His wrists and ankles are strapped to the arms and legs of the chair. He can sill move his upper body. He pulls the cotton from the chair out by his fingers, leans forward, and stuffs it in his ears.
