Corrected entry: When Julia Roberts character is taking pictures of Natalie Portman you notice that there isn't any studio lighting (i.e. flash) to light the photo. First, any professional photographer taking a portrait needs some kind of lighting in the studio. Second, when we see the photo of Natalie in the gallery at the opening, you can see two white spots in Natalie's eyes, which shows that a flash was used in taking the picture.

Correction: Not true, the windows in the studio that Anna was using would allow ample light, if you recall they weren't using lights when she was taking the portraits of Daniel either. Natural light gives a much nicer more natural looking portrait. As for the lights in Alice's eyes, they also could have been from the windows.

Boobra

Corrected entry: In the hospital, Natalie Portman would have had to given her name so she could be called in. However Jude Law was with her all the time and he doesn't find out her name until they were walking through the memorial gardens (when she gives the fake name).

Correction: She could have easily spoke with the triage nurse in private (which is routine in any hospital I've been to). When she was ready to be seen, the triage nurse could have just motioned to her, or gone up to her and said something like "You can be seen now."

Correction: It IS her left leg that was bleeding - Dan was putting her left leg onto the chair.

Other mistake: When Alice asks Dan to make her some tea (after he tells her about him and Anna), he walks into the kitchen for just a moment, and comes back to find her gone. He also doesn't see her as he runs downstairs and looks outside. She couldn't have quietly gone down the stairs and out of the building in the short moment that Dan was in the kitchen. If she had moved quickly, there should have been a lot noise from her footsteps.

Alice: Is it because she's successful?
Dan: No. It's because... she doesn't need me.

More quotes from Closer

Answer: Probably because she knew Larry wouldn't believe her - would you believe someone as mysterious as Alice was actually called 'Jane Jones', especially when you think you know her name is actually Alice? Larry thought she was mocking him so it was safe to reveal this about herself, but her whole relationship with Dan was about keeping a part of her separate from him.

Answer: Every time she had pink hair, like in the beginning of the film and during her club scene, she was her true self. The other times were guilted facades of who she really was.

When they met, Alice had pink-reddish hair and lied about her name, after having seen the name in one of the tombstones at the cemetery.

She met Dan in the beginning of the film, with said pink hair, and when asked she picked a name of a women who died helping three strangers in a fire.

She trusted Larry more with her real self.
