Burn After Reading

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene when Oz is brought in to be fired, he first approaches the desk and before he sits down, is standing in between the desk and the chair. In the reverse shots from behind him, he is standing behind the chair, not in front of it.

Other mistake: The date on the surveillance footage from the camera in the Russian Embassy says 01.05.08, implying that it is either January or May (depending on which date notation is being used, American mm.dd.yy or Russian dd.mm.yy). However, it is fall/autumn outside, as there are dead leaves everywhere.
