Revealing mistake: In the barber shop scene at the end of the film, Agent Anderson terrorises Deputy Sheriff Pell (who has a full head of hair) with a razor blade. Anderson throws him across the room, but the person being thrown across the room has a mostly bald head.

Trivia: At one point you see a fiery white supremacist leader, preaching to a rally and saying things like, "Every white, Anglo-Saxon, Christian one of us." The actor playing that role is Stephen Tobolowsky - a Polish name, and also almost certainly not Protestant (as the speaker would have meant when he said "Christian".).

Question: Who was the man who hung himself in the end?

Chosen answer: The Mayor (played by R Lee Ermey) who had been told the story of Homer Wilkes and threatened with castration earlier on.
