Closer

Other mistake: When Alice asks Dan to make her some tea (after he tells her about him and Anna), he walks into the kitchen for just a moment, and comes back to find her gone. He also doesn't see her as he runs downstairs and looks outside. She couldn't have quietly gone down the stairs and out of the building in the short moment that Dan was in the kitchen. If she had moved quickly, there should have been a lot noise from her footsteps.

Factual error: When Julia Roberts takes a photo of Natalie Portman crying she uses a 35mm camera. The final photo in the gallery is from a Hasselblad type camera shooting a square format. All the prints show the full negative and the outside area of the negative. Also when she uses the 35mm camera sometimes she advances the film manually and sometimes you hear a motor drive. It would be either one or the other. Last she doesn't focus the lens when she takes a picture.

Other mistake: When Anna takes her first picture of Alice, she lifts the camera to her face, then the shot changes to faraway, and she lifts it to her face again.

Question: How did Larry find out what club Alice/Jane works at? Did he just find her there by coincidence?

Chosen answer: It appears so. Nothing else suggested he knew where she worked. More that he was just going to different clubs and drinking and camed across the club Alice was working at.

Question: At the scene with Anna's art show, what does Anna mean when she tells Larry that he is the cat who got the cream?

Chosen answer: The saying, the cat who got the cream, means that someone is proud of something that they have done.

Question: Why did Alice tell Larry her real name, but she never told Dan?

Chosen answer: Probably because she knew Larry wouldn't believe her - would you believe someone as mysterious as Alice was actually called 'Jane Jones', especially when you think you know her name is actually Alice? Larry thought she was mocking him so it was safe to reveal this about herself, but her whole relationship with Dan was about keeping a part of her separate from him.

Answer: Every time she had pink hair, like in the beginning of the film and during her club scene, she was her true self. The other times were guilted facades of who she really was.
