Continuity mistake: When Bitsey is checking the videotapes at Dusty's house, the last tape, the one with the red label, falls over when she grabs the second last.

Question: What was the purpose of Berlin? What she planted to stage the rape? Or, was she really trying to get revenge? What did the postcard mean at the end of the movie in the money case?

Answer: I believe that she was a plot device to make sure David Gale had nothing to lose by the end of the movie. She then may have felt guilty about casual sex, and tried to get back at Gale. She then later felt guilty about the whole charade, and wrote him a postcard admitting what she had done. Then the postcard is given to the ex-wife to show he was innocent of rape.
