Several of the police cars in the movie are shown with new LED lightbars. LED lightbars on emergency vehicles did not enter mainstream use until the mid-2000's, and certainly not in the 1990's or before.

In a scene that takes place prior to 1994, the camera pans to show a patient's personal artifacts and photos on the wall. Among these there is a postcard with the ocean liner Queen Mary 2, but in reality this ship did not exist until 2004.

About 5 minutes into the movie, Dr. Kevorkian is browsing through books in a library and the camera shows the book "How We Die" by Dr. Sherwin Nuland. This should have been around 1989-90 in Kevorkian's career. But, Dr. Nuland's book was first published in 1994.

Kervorkian was tried in 1993 in Detroit Recorders Court, which was at the time housed in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice, a brutalist modern building constructed in 1968. When he exits the courthouse in the movie, Kervorkian walks out of the 19th century Roman Baroque old Wayne County building.
