Lucky Number Slevin

Deliberate mistake: In the parking lot at the horse track, the old cars are so huge, they don't fit properly in the tiny modern spaces. They are hanging over the backs of the spaces so badly that the drivers would only have about two feet to try and get their enormous cars out of the spaces.

Continuity mistake: When Slevin is in Nick's apartment the second time, eating the sandwich, the way he holds it changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Slevin is eating the first sandwich he eats in the movie, it changes from being half eaten to having only one bite taken out of it.

Question: Why does Slevin make Goodcat break his nose?

Chosen answer: When Slevin first tells Lindsey about his time in New York, he told her he was mugged and got his nose broken. We later find out this isn't true. To make his story seem valid, however, Goodcat breaks his nose.

Question: Did Slevin actually suffer from Ataraxia? He lied about most things, and I couldn't be certain about that.

Chosen answer: No, like the rest of his "cover" (being mugged, being a friend of Nick's) he made it up. It was simply a way to plausibly explain why he was so calm through everything, when in fact he was calm because it was all part of his plan.

Question: Why does Slevin tell Lindsey where Goodcat is going to shoot her? I take it that he wants to save Lindsey's life because he loves her, but if Goodcat wants to leave no witnesses, why would he disclose to Slevin where he would shoot her?

Chosen answer: Goodkat didn't say "hey, Slevin, I'm gonna shoot her here and here. Y'know, FYI." Slevin has been trained by Goodkat. Slevin knows where Goodkat is going to shoot Lindsey because that's where Goodkat always shoots people when he's assassinating them.
