I was disappointed when I saw the film end right where it was getting historically interesting, for us Europeans anyway. The whole story beforehand was way too subjective for it to have that desired effect of explaining how the civilisation was 'rotting from the inside' before the Spanish came along.

i assumed that the slaves were covered in dust from working with stone.

if you've ever been to a quarry you'd know what i mean.

i could be wrong. . .but slaves built the pyramids in egypt and the ancient temples in south america.

they were built of stone. i think that's what the white powder was. . .

the slaves were even seen coughing up blood. i assumed it was from inhaling dust.
