Matrix, The - Magic Sunglasses
In the part of the movie where Morpheus takes Neo into the construct to inform him of what the "Matrix" is, he finishes his speech on AI and the machines, (blah, blah) there is a shot of Neo, standing, with his arm holding himself up on the chair, looking at Morpheus disbelievingly. But the reflection on Morpheus's glasses do not match. The image on the glasses is of Neo standing up straight, not leaning on the chair. Nor does it look like Neo is even wearing the same clothes! In the image, Neo appears to be wearing the same outfit when he was going to visit the Oracle. Is this just another bit of magic from Morpheus's glasses or just a special FX mistake?

LOL, I've noticed that quite a bit in various parts of the film. I believe some of the reflections were added digitally - I know the red pill / blue pill scenes were, anyhow. They could've just taken footage from a different take.

This is just another referral to the fact that what is on the outside does not reflect our true inner selves. This is a major theme in The Matrix and should be scrutinized carefully.
