When Harry Tuttle escapes from Sam Lowry's flat, he is wearing a hood covering his head. When Harry starts to zip-line off the precipice, he is replaced by a stunt double wearing a baseball cap.
The "Trucking" magazine behind Jill's head during the truck chase is first folded, then open.
Holly's hair has a big gap in her front bangs when she says her one line, whereas before her bangs were intact. Holly Gilliam did this on purpose in an effort to avoid working on the scene again because she despised the process of filming. It didn't work, and the result is the continuity error.
When Sam is in Helpmann's office looking at the printer, pre-printed text can clearly be seen on the feeder roll.
When Harvey Lime goes to use his computer to look up Jill, as the camera moves forwards it hits Lime's desk and makes a loud audible thudding noise.
When Sam Lowry is overwhelmed by the incoming cylinders coming through the pneumatic tubes, he connects the "incoming" pipe to the "outgoing" pipe with a short U-shaped hose. The bend in the hose is far too sharp a turn for any of the cylinders to make it to the "outgoing" pipe.
When Sam is talking to Jack in the latter's office for the second time, there is a barely noticeable jump cut right after Jack says "We have a report in that Tuttle ..."
Crew or equipment visible
At around 11 minutes, a shadow of the camera crane can be seen on the wall and automated clothing rack as Sam steps inside the bathroom.
When Sam enters the small room behind Mr. Helpmann's office, a moving shadow on his coat sleeve reveals either a crew member or equipment moving off-screen.
While Tuttle repairs Sam's air conditioning, Sam approaches him and the cameraman's shadow is visible over him.
Sam is looking at his newly-issued badge upside down during a stressful encounter with security forces. He simply reads that badge number backwards. Quite an intentional element of the script.
When Sam Lowry first gets into Jill's cab, he says that he is number is D Zed stroke 105 (DZ-105) when in actuality his number is D Zed Stroke 015 (DZ-015).
