Reservoir Dogs

Other mistake: During the post-robbery flashback where Mr. White has just killed two police officers, there is a shot of Mr. White saying, "Let's go." after determining that Mr. Brown is dead. As Mr. White & Mr. Orange leave the scene, you can see 3, maybe 4 men standing perhaps 20 feet away, lounging in front of a dark blue truck. For all the car-crashing & gunshots easily within earshot, those witnesses seem awfully nonchalant. (01:25:40)

Other mistake: When Mr. Blonde is torturing the cop he is listening to the radio (Stuck In the Middle With You). However, when Mr. Orange shoots and kills Mr. Blonde the radio mysteriously shuts off.

Suggested correction: The radio doesn't shut off, it is just difficult to hear over the shouting in the scene.

No. The music turns off. Soon as Mr. Blonde is executed, there is no shouting. It is almost deathly quiet as we watch Mr. Orange still holding the gun, and Mr. Blonde fall to the floor. This mistake is a valid entry.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. Blonde is pouring gasoline over the cop, the cop's legs are flying around trying to kick him. Later, we see that the cop's legs are still taped to the chair.

Question: Why did Mr. Orange tell Mr. White that he was a cop? Surely he must have realised he would take it badly.

Chosen answer: Having just been shot a second time, he was probably dying by that point. He'd done many extremely questionable things - even murdered an innocent mom - and stood by as other terrible crimes were committed in his presence. He'd grown close to Mr. White, who'd just murdered two friends and taken a bullet for Orange's sake - even as Mr. Orange was betraying him all along. So partly this was about his attachment to Mr. White, and partly a death wish stemming from his own guilt about his actions. He knew full well what would happen but told Mr. White anyway, disregarding the consequences.
