Revealing mistake: When Brooks is carving his name, "dust" seemingly like plaster dust vs wood dust is shown falling on the table top, his shoes etc. When they cut to the view of Brooks looking at his work and closing his knife, there is no "dust" on his hand or knife. That much carving with that much dust falling on the table would have left his knife covered with dust. It was clean.

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the film when Akim is being awoken, he gets out of bed and rose bearers can be seen from above dropping rose pedals on the floor, but they are fairly sparsely scattered. When it's cut to them walking out of the bedroom, you can see in the background, a LOT of rose pedals in the floor.

Other mistake: At the beginning of the film when "C" witnesses Sonny shooting the guy over a parking spot, Lorenzo quickly shuffles C upstairs. They are in their apartment not more than 10/15 seconds when a detective knocks on their door. There's no way the police would have shown up that quickly, let alone the detectives.

Other mistake: In the beginning of the film when the stage coach is approaching Minnie's haberdashery, a well-worn horse path when approaching the haberdashery but it's been snowing a long time, and there is not a lot of traffic going to the haberdashery so this path should not be so worn.

Character mistake: At the very beginning of the film, when Hannibal Lecter is serving dinner to his guests, one diner asks "what is this divine looking amuse-bouche" when she and the other guests have a full plate of food. An amuse-bouche is a single bite of food meant to be served at the beginning of a meal, not a plate full of food. Lecter's guests would be better educated.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the beginning of the movie when Carrie's mother puts her in her "praying room" the room is pitch black. When it cuts to an overhead shot of Carrie in the room, the room is lit either by a window or something else. This is before she lights a candle.

Other mistake: In the scene where Frank Morris first starts to dig using the nail clipper, he stands up in his cell, turns off the light then bends down to start digging, however the only light coming into the cell would be on his right, but the shadows from his head and bars appear to be from a light directly behind him.

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie when Salieri is first talking to the priest asking him if he recognizes some of his songs, they cut away to an opera. A woman can be seen descending stairs where there appears to be smoke falling down the stairs, which would have to be dry ice. While it was first discovered/observed in 1825, it wasn't commercially available until 1925.

Factual error: In The Bonnie Situation when the white kid busts out of the bathroom and empties his "canon", there is absolutely no recoil on the weapon. The gun is either a .357 magnum or .44 cal and would have a huge kick after firing. In this scene, he fires all the shots with barely any recoil at all.

Factual error: When Meryl Streep is walking outside and talking to Mrs. Miller about the potential abuses of her son, you can see a basketball court in the background and on the court is a 3-point line. The movie is supposed to take place in 1964 and the 3 point line wasn't introduced until 1979/1980. (01:10:20)
