I watched the movie a while back but got around to watching it again just recently and noticed something that just didn't sit well with me. This could just a be a run of the mill goof like in all films, but I doubt it.
In the scene where Angier shows his trick for the first time to Ackerman after he disappears, he appears behind Ackerman, to his surprise, and his right leg is the one that is shown to be injured. Yet, throughout the film the left leg is the crippled one. Now, at first glance, this may seem to be just a goof/mistake but when I thought about it, this seems like something that could not be overlooked. For one, I do not think Nolan would overlook something that is somewhat obvious and is a big part of Jackman's character. But more importantly, there is no way Jackman could mess this up. He has taken dozens and dozens of takes (there are numerous scenes with him after the accident) with the left leg being injured so it is not only a HUGE part of the character, but a HUGE part of Jackman who has become this character for the movie. I realized it my second viewing of the film, so how could someone who has embodied this character for the movie and has continually used the left leg as the crippled one all of a sudden make a mistake and use the right.
This leads me to believe that it is not a mistake and possibly have some sort of significance. I could be completely wrong and it could just be my want for more complexity and a deeper reveal but it just bugged me to the point where I registered for this forum (which has had extremely good discussion, btw) and pose the question for all of you, even though nothing has been posted for a while
