Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • In at least two scenes taxis are shown with an advertisement on the roof hoarding depicting a brand called "Red Mullet" - the name of director Mike Figgis's production company and it's his face in the ad.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Yuri is supposed to be swearing in Latvian on the phone. In fact, he speaks gibberish.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): The level of liquid in Ben's glass when he's packing to move to Sera's place. Ben is emptying bottles in the glass and drinking from it while he packs, which explains the different levels.
  • Ben doesn't eat a single thing during the entire film. This reinforces his dependence on alcohol as chronic alcoholics usually forget to eat or can't force food down. During the restaurant scene he puts spaghetti on his fork but doesn't eat it. And when Sera fixes him rice, he eats an ice cube instead.
