i liked the cast but i got freaked out over the scene where a young native boy is killed, and the consequent close-up of his body as he is being handed up to somebody. to this day, i don't know if he really died or was just a good 'dead' actor, jejune. either way, i did not like the visual, just as i did not enjoy the overhead-helicopter shot of michael jackson being loaded into an ambulance outside his mansion. he was on a stretcher before they loaded him into the vehicle for transport to the hospital. i said to myself, 'why? i've never seen anyone look so dead, outside of a morgue.'/ For THE DARJEELING LIMITED, there had been a lot of silly interaction between the lead actors, which was at least mildly enjoyable, but after the young fella was killed, these interactions fell flat for me.
