The Mayor: Jack, I'm only an elected official here, I can't make decisions by myself!



After Jack is blown out of the sky and is lying in the graveyard, he has several grey smudges on his face from the explosion. But in the very next shot, a birds-eye view of Jack lying across the angel, the smudges have disappeared.



At one point during the song "Jack's Lament", Jack pops up between two tombstones. The tombstone on the left is a figure from the painting "The Scream" [src], and the tombstone on the right is the horse from Picasso's "Guernica" [src].
