Factual error: While Bridger is watching the film of the Mafia boss following Beckerman he signals for the film to be stopped so he can look at the close up shot of the man. He is watching a 16mm film shown through a bog standard projector - stop a film like that for more than two seconds without closing down the projector shutter (this doesn't happen - if it did the screen would darken instantly) and it will melt and catch fire. This doesn't happen.

Trivia: Croker has just come out of prison and is met by Lorna who has stolen a Daimler to drive him home in. Croker finds a flag in the car and says "this car belongs to the Pakistani ambassador" which was true, in real life that car did belong to the Pakistani embassy in London and was hired by the film company.
