Hannibal mistake picture

Revealing mistake: During the scene in which Krendler shows the fake Lecter postcard, look closely and you can read the line: "Sounds like him to me" although this line is part of Krendler's speech, and not part of the message itself. Forgetting your lines, Mr. Liotta? (01:21:55)

Revealing mistake: When the rich guy is drinking Chateau d'Yquem from a straw, you can see, afterwards, Gary Oldman's lips under the thick mask or whatever. This is really obvious. (01:23:35)

Revealing mistake: At the end of the telephone conversation between Krendler and Verger we see Krendler with his mobile phone, and through Krendler's phone we hear Verger hanging up. The sound we hear is unequivocally that of a receiver being hung up on a desktop telephone, but in all of the shots portraying Verger in this sequence we see him using a mobile phone. With mobile phones a conversation is ended simply by pressing a button—-there is nothing to hang up. (01:21:20)

Revealing mistake: During the shootout in a market, when a cop is run over, from the shot inside the car the blood and damage are already seen on the glass before he is hit.

Revealing mistake: When Pazzi is visiting Hannibal, you can see a group of monks at the top of some steps waiting for their cue - the camera gets closer to them and they all start walking down. (00:48:00)

Revealing mistake: When Pazzi is killed, there's a shot of his cell phone and phone battery slamming into the ground followed by a splatter of his innards. However, there is a (rather obvious and poorly timed) jump-cut in the middle of the shot, right before his innards splatter down from above. His cell phone is still moving about a bit, when suddenly it goes perfect still in an unnatural way. It also moves ever-so-slightly to the left when the cut happens. It's supposed to appear to be one continuous shot, but it's clear they dropped the cell-phone, waited for it to settle, then dropped the innards and tried to edit it so the shot moved faster.

Continuity mistake: When Clarice is opening the letter written to her by Hannibal, it is sealed with wax, and not glued down in any way. While she's reading it, Hannibal is shown licking an envelope. (00:32:05)

Answer: Starling says to Krendler "Paul, what is it with you? I told you to go home to your wife, that was wrong?", implying that he had made a pass at her and she had rejected him. He replies that it was a long time ago, and that he didn't hold it against her, but combined with Mason Verger's bribe this was most likely the cause of his antagonism towards Starling.

Answer: In the book it says that Clarice had caught Buffalo Bill before he could. It said also that is why he hated her early in the book.
