Factual error: In one scene, we Dolores driving back home, after the scene where Vera tells her that accidents can 'happen' to wives husbands every day. The shot shows a huge full moon in the sky.

Continuity mistake: Just before Dolores smashes the window, using the axe, the shape of the hole in the window changes considerably between shots. Also, as Dolores smashes the window with the axe, she is about the hit the top of the window, yet in the next shot she smashes from the bottom of the window. It is also apparent, as the glass smashes in slow motion, that Dolores' reflection is painted on. (00:45:20)

In the next shot, the handle has gone, and the liquid which poured over, down the side of the pot, has gone, and the pot is now clean. (00:28:30)

Audio problem: In the shots of Detective John Mackey standing by the window looking out of the blinds at Selena, while he's on the telephone, as he speaks, nothing that we hear matches up with the movements of the side of his mouth. It is very clearly out of sync, and audio is heard when the mouth is still. (00:07:55)
