  • Trivia

    • Goof: Sarah steals a video tape from the stack at Agent Ellisons' apartment and brings it into her kitchen where John took the tape from her back and watched it. We see an "overshoulder shot" of him watching an interview tape with a time-code burn in. It reads 02:09:14:00 and counting until the cut-away at around 02:09:20:00. On the next morning Sarah gets suspicious about John's behavior and checks his room. The tape is ejected and Sarah pushes it right back in and presses play. The burn-in time-code reads 02:09:21:00.
      First: if the tape is ejected but not took back in place in Sarah's bag one can assume John watched, fell asleep, the tape run throughout, got rewound and ejected. In that case it should start at the very same time-code as we see when John watches it the first time. Second: if John watched it and rewound it manually so he ejected it as well but why he didn't put it back in Sarah's bag? Third: When John watches the tape right from the point it was cued to when it came to their house in the first place we can see a steady-shot of two - the interviewer from the back and Sarah facing the camera. At whatever continuity Sarah watches the tape the other day we can see the subsequent timecode but a dolly shot with the interviewer entering the frame from the left hand side, taking a seat at the table and starting the interview.
      Why is the tape ejected and at what point but not put back in Sarah's bag?
      Why is right at the point Sarah is starting to watch the tape still some material on it, i.e. wouldn't John have watched it all?
      Given the upper thoughts: why is there a subsequent time-code both times we can see the tape's content but the picture are obviously not continuous?
