Corrected entry: The shot which follows on immediately after Dollarhyde is shot shows a large stain of blood under him in the shape of a dragon's wings. He could not have lost that much blood that quickly, and it would be impossible for it to form so accurate a shape that fast.

Correction: If one of the bullets penetrated the aorta, Dallarhyde would bleed out within seconds. Literally. Impossible to form that shape? Why? Is there some sort of restriction on this kind of thing? Unlikely, maybe, impossible, no.

Corrected entry: Francis Dolarhyde's name is spelled with one l, but on the driver's license displayed in the film, it is spelled with two.

Correction: This is a discrepancy between the movie and the "Red Dragon" novel, not a mistake within the movie.

Trivia: Michael Mann originally wanted Francis Dollarhyde to have William Blake's "The Great Red Dragon" tattooed on his back, but discarded the idea after deciding said tattoo trivialized Dollarhyde's personal struggles. When Ralph Fiennes played Dolarhyde in Red Dragon, director Brett Ratner decided to include the tattoo.

Question: When Jack Crawford is explaining to his team about the Tooth Fairy's note to Lecktor, there is, very prominently in the foreground, what looks like a paperweight on his desk. What exactly is it, and why is it so important as to be in the foreground? (00:43:20)
