I was a witness to the panic over the HIV/AIDS epidemic and I've seen any number of fads and panics spawned by junk science; I do know how stupid and venal people can be. I still think that this is an instance in the film where Jackson dropped the ball (combined with the issue of the missing day between the company's arrival in Lake-town and its departure). Any indifference over Kili's worsening condition should have been demonstrated at least once.


I didn't really have any problem figuring out why no one would help them, and it felt realistic to me, but there may well be a scene or two in the EE which would help in this regard.
