Corrected entry: When Lily hides out in the motel room, we see her place a silencer on her gun, but when she uses the gun on Mia, we still hear the blast.

Correction: In fact this is entirely realistic - 'silencers' are largely mythical and do not produce the fain 'sput.' of film legend. They will supress the noise of the gun leaving the barrel but not the explosive gases escaping from the breech, and a significant gunshot is still produced.

Continuity mistake: When Lily breaks into Roy's apartment, she unscrews two small light bulbs in the fixture next to the front door, throwing that whole end of the hallway into darkness. When Roy returns home, he opens the door and the hallway is brightly lit again. (01:32:45 - 01:34:15)
