Corrected entry: When Rockoff takes a picture of Pran for his fake passport the view through the eyepiece shows a tiled wall that isn't there. (01:08:05)

Correction: What appears to be tile is actually a grid pattern in the viewfinder of the Rolleiflex camera. If you look closely, you can see that the grid covers Pran's face and shirt, not just the wall.

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. (00:56:50)
