Munich

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Avner shoots the first Palestinian, the dead man falls forward onto his groceries, but the next time the body is seen, he is lying on his back.

Factual error: In the final scene with the New York skyline in the background, the new glass/stainless steel Manhattan complex at 731 Lexington Avenue is seen; this building is just being finished now in early '06. The building stands where Alexander's dept store once was. (On a related note, it is a nice touch on Spielberg's part to overlay the Twin Towers onto the skyline in that same scene.)

Revealing mistake: When Avner finds Carl dead in the hotel bed, you can see a pulse in Carl's neck.

Trivia: In this film, the word 'Sabra' is used a few times. Sabra means a Jewish person who was actually born in Israel, and not one born in another country who then later moved to the Holy Land.

Ephraim: We deposit money from a fund that doesn't exist into a box we don't know about in a bank we've never set foot in. We can't help you because we never heard of you before.

Ephraim: That's touching, in a juvenile sort of way.

Steve: Don't fuck with the Jews.

Question: Is this the last movie to be shot, edited and finished on film?

Chosen answer: It's a bit difficult to find out this sort of information as not all films released disclose what they use to edit on. Michael Kahn is perhaps the most famous editor around to edit on flatbed machines and switched to digital editing for time constraints. Many film schools still teach and use flatbed editing so you may still see short films edited on film, just not feature length movies for a variety of reasons.
