Serge X wraps "Boy With Apple" in brown paper and slips an envelope in the back of the painting. This envelope presumably stays in the same place until the end of the movie.

It is an extremely common mistake. People think the writer's imagination is always at work, that he's constantly inventing an endless supply of incidents and episodes; that he simply dreams up his stories out of thin air.

He just doesn't quite seem to match up with the rest of what's going on. Same with Ed Norton, although he's less of a sore thumb. But they aren't problematic for the whole movie. Just very very minor distractions - for me, anyway.
I just loved it. So much!
