Being John Malkovich

Audio problem: During the Subcon Chase when Lotte and Maxine go through Malkovich and his date says 'You're creepy' she just nods and her lips don't move.

Audio problem: Before Lotte chases Maxine through JM's subconscious she tries to shoot her in the office. Her movements while she aims and the sound of the shot are totally uncoordinated. (01:33:30)

Continuity mistake: When Craig and Maxine are speaking with their first client (the "Fatman"), Maxine has a clipboard with paper on top on the desk in front of her. When the shot changes, the blue clipboard is now at the top, neither Maxine nor Craig removed the paper.

Maxine: Here's the thing: If you ever get me, you wouldn't have a clue what to do with me.

More quotes from Being John Malkovich

Question: When I originally saw the film at the Midway Theater in Forest Hills, New York there were so many errors, I thought they were part of the movie. There was shaky cameras, boom mics shown in the frame, extras walking around, and lighting devices in frame. I’m not talking once or twice, it was throughout. I ended up leaving. Has anyone ever heard of this?
