I am new to this board, so maybe this has already been discussed here. If so, apologies.
Abe is shown drawing a red circle around the farm house on his map, just before he sees Kid Blue with Old Joe on the monitor. He makes a complete circle, closing the loop (ends touching).
After Old Joe shoots up the place, Kid Blue enters Abe's office and sees the map hung on the wall. The camera zooms in and we see that the circle is not perfectly drawn - ends don't touch/loop is not closed. For some reason I noticed this on 1st viewing and it has stuck with me ever since.

Did RJ sneak that one in or was it a cont. error?

I bet he snuck it in one way or another--either showing it closed and then cutting to show it not closed yet (due of course to eddies in the space-time continuum). However, since you're new, you should also read this for background.

You win the prize for being the first person to point this out on the forum! The prize is this post, with me acknowledging that you won. Exciting!

But seriously, folks. Knowing Rian, I feel like it could easily go either way.

Fuck, now I need to rewatch the whole movie. Thanks new guy.

But seriously it's obvious symbolism and I'm pissed I missed it.

It wasn't obvious, since none of us noticed it. I kind of hope it isn't even intentional and that it was just an amazing coincidence.

He doesn't post here as often as he used to, but he checks it out on occasion. You could always tweet at him with a link to the thread if you want to try getting his attention.

Thanks

OK I've owned the Bluray for a while and watched this movie waaaaaay too much probably; but the level of detail RJ put into this continues to amaze me.

The first time Joe falls off his fire escape there is a strange clicking noise at the end of scene (screen is blacked out at this point). Finally figured this out:
During the second iteration of this scene, when Old is on street level trying to shoot up at the gat man, his revolver jams. The clicking is a result of him fiddling with it just prior to picking him off, as we see in the second version of the scene.

Mr. Johnson PLEASE STOP MESSING WITH MY MIND! And I still want to know if the two red loops were drawn differently on purpose!
