Requiem for a Dream: Most movies contain 600 to 700 cuts. Requiem for a Dream contains over 2,000.

The Shining: During the making of the movie, Stanley Kubrick would call Stephen King at 3:00 a.m. and ask him questions like "Do you believe in God?"

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: Many extras were authentic mental patients.

Todo sobre mi madre: Agrado's monologue was based on a real life event. When the electronic system of an Argentinian theater failed, the director suspended the show. Actress Lola Membrives decided to give the news to the audience and make them an offer: if they'd stay, they could listen to the narration of her life.

A Clockwork Orange: Stanley Kubrick deliberately made continuity errors just before the author worked out who Alex is. The dishes on the table move around and the level of wine in the glasses change between shots to give a feeling of disorientation to the viewer.

L'Auberge espagnole: "L'auberge espagnole" (the Spanish hotel) is the house in Barcelona where the Erasmus students live their adventures in the movie.

The Matrix: The glyphs on the computer screens, with the exception of the call traces, consists of reversed letters, numbers, and Japanese katakana characters.

The Usual Suspects: Throughout the movie, 'fuck' and its derivatives are used 98 times.

The Silence of the Lambs: The butterfly in the posters for the movie appears to have a human skull at its center. However, upon close inspection, this "skull" turns out to be at least three naked women (clearly seven in some versions of the poster) and is very similar to a 1951 photograph by Philippe Halsman, inspired by a 'Salvador Dali' drawing and gouache painting. Upon even closer inspection, the moth's wings appear to have a re-colored image of William Blake's Great Red Dragon, which is creased and folded.

Se7en: One version of the script contained a few scenes following the final confrontation between the detectives and John Doe. In one, Somerset is recovering in the hospital after being shot by Mills, and the captain delivers a letter to him from Mills which reads, "You were right. You were right about everything."
