The Killing Fields

The Killing Fields (1984)

Continuity mistake: When the protagonists are trying to get to the French embassy they pass a VW beetle whose windshield is smashed by a Red Khmer. The camera angle is not very helpful but if you look closely you see that the window is gone already, and the pieces flying over the hood are from the bit of glass that sticks in the frame.

Continuity mistake: When Sydney is typing a report there are a lamp, a statue, and a whiskey bottle on his desk. In the next shot the number of bottles goes up to two. Then again you see only one bottle, the lamp has changed from straight to bulbous, and all items are totally rearranged.

Revealing mistake: When the village where Pran is hiding as a servant is bombed, you see a lot of stuntmen performing elegant jumps as if they were doing gymnastics, some long after the impact of the bomb would have hit them.

Trivia: Although a plan was made to smuggle Dith Pran out of the country, it was never carried out - as soon as the embassy authorities caught wind of it, they were concerned that it would jeopardize their exit. Understandably, they insisted that he had to leave the compound.
