The Ninth Gate

Revealing mistake: When Corso is being pushed through the floorboards (into his proper niche) we can see for a good second or two that it is certainly not Johnny Depp. (The stunt-double is Dominique Fouassier). (01:59:25)

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene on the riverbank when the white haired man lands on the pavement, the "concrete" pavement moves.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the end of the film after Depp leaves the castle after shooting Balkin and gets into his car you can see a crew member in the side view mirror as Depp opens and closes the driver side door.

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.
