Falling Down

Audio problem: Near the start of the movie, D-Fens calls his ex-wife at her house. When she enters the kitchen, the phone isn't particularly loud, yet in the previous shot, she was quite far away from the house, with lots of people chatting and making noise, there's no way she could have heard it at the point she did.

Audio problem: At the beginning when D-Fens is bothered by a fly while he is sitting in his car, the fly sounds as if it is held in a closed box, not flying around freely. (00:03:20)

Audio problem: Just before D-Fens shoots up the payphone, that guy tells him that there's other people waiting to use the phone too. After D-Fens says 'that's too bad, because you know what?', you can hear the guy ask 'what?', but his lips don't move. (00:52:19)

Continuity mistake: When D-Fens attacks the Oriental shopkeeper he puts his foot on the shopkeeper's neck and his socks are clearly visible as white. However, a few minutes later when he removes his shoe to examine a hole in it on the hill, before being confronted by the two homeboys - his socks have somehow changed to black. (00:10:20 - 00:18:15)

Question: Why does the Beggar throw the apple at D-fens? I found it odd since he just gave him a briefcase and a lunch.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Because the beggar thought there would be items of value in the briefcase and he was frustrated that there was nothing in there. So in frustration he threw the apple at D-Fens.
