Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Corrected entry: In the scene at the laundromat, Yitzhak is eyeing a flier for "Rent" auditions. When the camera pans down through a close-up of the flier, a business card is visible on the wall behind the flier, in the bottom right corner. When the shot goes back to Yitzhak looking at it, the card is gone. (00:46:05)

Correction: On the DVD widescreen this does not happen, the card is visible the entire time.

Corrected entry: In the coffee bar scene, John Cameron Mitchell blots his face with a towel, then he throws the towel to Michael Pitt. Pitt catches it, opens it, and through its back, you can see an upside-down imprint of Mitchell's face make-up. When the camera shows the towel from over Pitt's shoulder in the next shot, however, the face imprint is rightside-up.

Correction: The towel image is never upside down. After the towel is caught, the camera pans down and the scene cuts to over-the-shoulder perspective a moment after the eyes come in to view but before the lips. In the initial perspective, as Tommy unfolds the towel, there is a crease in the towel that causes an intermittent shadow more or less where the lips would be IF he were holding it upside down. But, unlike the consistent, darker shadows of the eye imprints, this trick of light varies as Tommy moves his hands. Also, the lips imprint is very dark, every bit as dark as the eyes, but the shadow effect creates an area of contrast that is much less than the eyes. This was investigated using a 6 zoom DVD image on a 44" DLP monitor.
