The Ninth Gate

Audio problem: After the part where Johnny Depp finds his bookstore friend dead, he gets back in the cab. After driving for a while, he tells the cab driver to pull over to the phone booth. The cab driver says "No problem, sir" but you can see the cab driver's lips in the rear view mirror, and they never move.

Audio problem: While Depp is at 'P y P Ceniza Restauracion De Libros', one of the bookstore owners (man on right side of frame wearing blue apron) says, "I would never have believed she'd parted with it, never." He obviously did not say this. He actually appears to either ask his brother a question or make an entirely different statement. (00:38:30)

Audio problem: When Liana hits Johnny Depp over the head with the bottle, you can hear the sound of it breaking before it actually does.

Trivia: Probably the most impressive visual effect in this film is when Corso consults the twin brothers Pablo and Pedro Ceniza (rare book experts). Both Ceniza twins were played by actor José López Rodero in the subtle and entirely convincing digital effect sequence. The only flaw was that the elderly twins had identical facial wrinkles, which never happens with real-life twins. Beyond that, José López Rodero additionally played the two nameless workmen that Corso encounters at the end of the film, meaning that Rodero played four digital-effect roles in this movie.
