* DoingItForTheArt: This is one of the most expensive Independent Movies ever made. Of course it would count as this.
* FakeNationality: Too many to count. Just to list a few, Chinese Zhou Xun plays a Korean waitress, Australian Hugo Weaving plays a German composer, American Tom Hanks plays a Cockney gangster and so on and so forth.
* HeyItsThatGuy: This comes with having an AllStarCast. In this case, it's unique in that "That Guy/Girl" probably [[ActingForTwo plays more than one character]] in the film.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The Japanese dub is a good as the original English version in the AllStarCast department. For the sake of simplicity, only the actors who played their group of characters will be listed here:

* ActingForTwo: In the movie, the AllStarCast plays one role in almost every timeline, in a type of invocation of NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize. It would probably be easier to list who ''doesn't'' play multiple roles.

It would probably be easier to list who ''doesn't'' play multiple roles. Some of the lesser recognized dual roles are Brody Nicholas Lee as both Javier Gomez, Luisa Rey's neighbor, and Zachry's nephew in the 2321 storyline, and Robert Fyfe as a crewmember on the ship in Adam Ewing's story and Mr. Meeks.

* ShoutOut: Many and varied, since Mitchell writes in just about every genre going. Each genre is more or less explicitly compared to what inspired it:
** In the film, Cavendish compares Knuckle Sandwich to Moby Dick, an attempt to pacify Dermot about the former's lagging sales.
** In one story, ''The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish'', the protagonist quotes [[spoiler:''Film/SoylentGreen'', which becomes horribly relevant in the next story]].
** The name of one story's title character, Luisa Rey, is an apparent [[ShoutOut reference]] to the book ''The Bridge of San Luis Rey'' by Thornton Wilder.
** When Dermont [[spoiler: kills the critic who gave his book a bad review]], the scene brings to mind [[Creator/ConanOBrien Conan O'Brien's]] death in ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut''.
** Sonmi~[[Literature/{{Fahrenheit451}} 451]]'s number.
** Fabricants? Disposable clones employed for inhuman tasks without regard for their dignity? Sounds like [[Film/BladeRunner Replicants]].
** Sonmi mentions reading the works of "optimists" Huxley and Orwell. This is a reference to Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, best remembered for their respective dystopian novels ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'' and ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]''.
** In the film, the fighters used in Sonmi's segments look like [[Franchise/StarTrek The Klingon's Bird of Prey ships]].
** Unsurprisingly, the way Hae-Joo Chang looks like in the film kind of evokes [[Film/TheMatrix Neo]]. Likewise, the Unanimity forces kind of look like not only resemble him, but also the police from the [[{{Film/Equilibrium}} Tetragrammaton Council]].
** The cops chasing Sonmi~451 and Hae-Joo Chang are authorized to use [[Film/TheBluesBrothers "excessive force."]]
** During Sonmi's speech, some of the [[spoiler: Union and Unanimity forces]], seem to be using the same submachine guns used by [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 The Combine]].
