Continuity mistake: After the scene where John Goodman kills the detectives in the hallway of the hotel, he is shown walking one direction down the hall to his room, then John Turturro is shown walking the other direction to the elevator. In neither of those shots is there a detective's body on the floor.
Barton Fink's screenplay gets thrown out by Lipnick, but he keeps him under contract to teach him a lesson. Mundt is the devil, and the hotel is hell. He's a mass murderer, and gives Barton a head in a box. It ends with Barton at the sea and looking at a woman, who's actually the woman from the picture.
Ben Geisler: What Ted Oakam doesn't know you could almost squeeze into the Hollywood Bowl.
