Continuity mistake: When the protagonists are trying to get to the French embassy they pass a VW beetle whose windshield is smashed by a Red Khmer. The camera angle is not very helpful but if you look closely you see that the window is gone already, and the pieces flying over the hood are from the bit of glass that sticks in the frame.
Continuity mistake: When Sydney is typing a report there are a lamp, a statue, and a whiskey bottle on his desk. In the next shot the number of bottles goes up to two. Then again you see only one bottle, the lamp has changed from straight to bulbous, and all items are totally rearranged.
Continuity mistake: In the concentration camp children get taught to cut themselves off from their parents. There is a blackboard with a painting of a house and a family with something written on top in Cambodian. A child comes and crosses out the parents. When the camera angle changes the cross is different, and the writing on top is gone (a part of it should be visible even though a smaller area of the blackboard is shown).
Continuity mistake: When a high-ranking Cambodian politician is taken out of the French embassy by the Red Khmer, the gate is opened and closed with a latch on the side. Then the camera looks through the gate at the leaving car, and now the gate has two wings with a chain and a lock in the middle.
