Continuity mistake: During the diner scene, once Leilani covers the imaginary bodycam and starts talking about his murderous beard, her hand position keeps changing between shots, together with the phone's position, sometimes close to her body, other times closer to the fries. And the phone is in an entirely different spot in the close-up when it starts vibrating. (00:16:35)

Continuity mistake: Leilani and Jibran are at the diner. No booze is served there, so they get milkshakes instead. In the establishing overhead shot there are no spoons in the shakes, they appear in the next shot. Which would be fine, but Leilani is playing with the spoon in that shot, and once he says that they should go to the police, her hand is gone. A few seconds later, Leilani's shake just moves entirely out of the way and is replaced by a plate of fries. (00:15:55)

Continuity mistake: When Leilani and Jibran are breaking into the Biker's apartment from the fire escape, Leilani has her high heels in her hands and uses them to help Jibran break the window. Just after they break the glass, she steps through the broken pane with no shoes in hand and is then seen wearing flats once they make it inside.

Continuity mistake: First argument. Leilani shouts "Why are you being so loud right now?", with a hand behind her neck. She does not start the next shot in that position, she puts her hand there only a second later. (00:04:05)

Jibran: Two.
Diner Waitress: Two what?
Jibran: Two alcohols, please. Thank you so much.
Diner Waitress: We don't serve alcohol.
