Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • The music score was composed by Rian Johnson's cousin, Nathan Johnson (IV), with additional support and music from The Cinematic Underground. The score hearkens back to the style, feel and overall texture of noir films. It features traditional instruments such as the piano, trumpet and violin, and also contains unique and invented instruments such as the wine-o-phone, metallophone, tack pianos, filing cabinets, and kitchen utensils, all recorded with one microphone on a beat-up Apple PowerBook. Since Nathan Johnson was in England during most of the production process, the score was composed almost entirely over Apple iChat, with Rian Johnson playing clips of the movie to Nathan Johnson, who would then score them. The two later met in New York to mix the soundtrack.
  • The filmmakers had filmed a version of the film scene with the playing field all muddy and damaged. When they came back to film more of the scene they discovered that the school had refurbished the field and it was now perfect and bright green. That's why most of the shots in the scene are angled upwards to hide the field from view.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Pin enters his house while Tug and Brendan are talking at the kitchen table, we can see that he is wearing what appears to be white sneakers. Later on in that scene, there is a shot from under the table and we can see he is wearing the big black orthopedic shoe he usually wears.
  • The lack of classroom scenes in this high school film was much commented after the movie's release. While there originally was a scene set in Brendan's classroom, Rian Johnson had to re-write it to avoid a location change. This scene was the one where Brendan goes through the notebook he takes from Emily when they meet; in the original script, this happened while a teacher explains something in the background.
