American History X

Visible crew/equipment: When Derek comforts Danny in the bathroom after he has been shot, we see a shot of the detective. If you look behind him you can make out a pole of a boom mic. It isn't clear as the background is slightly blurry, but it's there. (01:53:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When Derek is running into the bathroom after Danny has been shot, as he is running through the crowd of students, it cuts to a shot from the side of the hallway, it's very quick, but you can see a camera, a cameraman, and the boom mike and its operator.

Continuity mistake: When Derek lifts the till to throw it through the window it's wired glass, when he throws it through it's obviously clear. (00:46:00)

Audio problem: At Cameron's party, when Derek is about to leave and Seth comes at him with a gun you can see Danny running down the stairs screaming at Seth, but his mouth doesn't move.

Continuity mistake: In the dinner scene with the whole family and the mother's new date they are talking about the LA riots when Edward Norton puts down his fork. It cuts to a shot behind him and he's still holding the fork up.

Murray: Derek, what are you trying to prove?

Question: What happened to Little Henry after he killed Danny in the bathroom?

Answer: We don't find that out. It happens right at the end of the film, and we don't get to see the aftermath.

Answer: This is what I'm trying to figure out - when he shot Danny he disappeared, he probably got away with it or he was arrested later on.
