American Beauty - Angela's Head
Just before the scene when Angela kisses Lester in his fantasy and he pulls a rose petal from his mouth, she peers around the doorway of the kitchen, the right side of her face is showing. In this shot her face is partially concealed behind the wall. The next shot show Lester framed between the door on the left and her head on the right. Her head has jumped a foot to the right from the last cut, an impossibility.

I have the Awards Edition of American Beauty, and Sam Mendes(director) talks about this scene. It is a slip-up. It is very clearly stated by him.

It's not impossible. She was just standing in the wrong spot. I guess they just didn't have the time to line her up with the previous shot.
