Knives Out

Visible crew/equipment: While Blanc talks to Marta about how long he has known her to be involved in the case and that he has an opinion on whether she should help the family, a person (most likely a crew member) leaves the house in a stooped position, as all the other inhabitants should have left it by now. (02:04:19)

Visible crew/equipment: Marta and the detective are driving to the 1209 location, and he is talking. During this entire scene, the reflection of the camera is visible on the left side of the glass.

Visible crew/equipment: During the car chase, Marta pulls her car into a dead end and the camera moves up to the window. The top of the camera operator's head is visible in the reflection. Later in the same shot, the camera is visible in the glass left of screen.

Continuity mistake: There's a clear mix-up in editing during the car chase. Marta checks her phone twice for Blanc's calls as she tries to get away from the police. The first time the phone signals 9:36 AM, the second time 9:34 AM. (01:31:50)

Question: How did blood drop reached Marta's shoes, even though it was too far from Christopher Plummer in the suicide scene? (00:53:50)

Answer: To add slightly to the other answer, evidently some of the blood in the scene had to be digitally removed for the film to secure a PG-13 rating, which explains why we don't see any actual spray/gush. But we are to assume that a drop managed to splash onto her shoe when he slit his throat.

Answer: The rationale is that blood can travel quite far from an artery and her shoe therefore got the droplet on it even from the doorway - however it does seem to me that the filmic portrayal is lacking, since you don't actually see any instance of spray. Rian Johnson' script says "Blood gushes." What we see in the scene is that it is trickling down his cut - a bit.
