Roman J. Israel, Esq.:
The real enemies aren't the ones on the outside, they're on the inside.
At about 0:49:48, as Roman and Maya are assisting the possible dead homeless person, Maya receives a call on her cell. When she "answers" the call the screen goes to sleep. During the call, the screen illuminates because of movement and reflects on her face. Neither would happen if she was actually answering then using the telephone feature on today's smart phones.
