Continuity mistake: In most shots in the hotel room the houses you can see through the windows are quite far away, like across a wide street. Only in one shot, when Estella stands nude in front of the window, there is suddenly a window only a few meters away, through which one can see an Indian woman with her daughter, surprisingly unaware of the naked Estella.
Continuity mistake: When the drunken Finn is shouting in front of Mrs. Dinsmoor's NY house he is holding a full liquor bottle in the left hand, then he empties it out, holding in his right hand, and finally he throws away a miraculously refilled bottle with his left hand again.
Plot hole: Before Lustig dies he gives back Finn's scrapbook that got lost during their first encounter. In that scene there is no evidence that Lustig gets hold of the book, and the only explanation would be that Lustig picked up the stranded scrapbook later. This looks quite far-fetched to me, especially since Lustig was hiding in the dunes, and the scrapbook looked way to good to have spent a long time in the water.
Continuity mistake: Lustig's murderer enters the subway car through the connecting door. After the stabbing he runs back and tries to leave through an exit next to this door. However, in the previous shots Lustig and Finn were standing right at that exit, which means that the stabbing shot was taken at a different spot than where the two protagonists were shown before, i.e. it was taken farther away from the connecting door.
Continuity mistake: When Lustig comes to Finn's appartment he reveals his identity by replaying the scene in the water, when they first met. Right next to Finn's head you see a decorative mobile with vigorously swinging birds. In all other shots the mobile is completely motionless and in quite a distance from the spot where this conversation takes place.
