Moulin Rouge - Dead or Not?
Right after Nicole Kidman (Satine) dies in Christian's (Ewan MacGregor) arms at the end of the opening show, Christian is so taken aback, he brings her closer and holds her tight. You notice her eyes are indeed open, the camera focuses in for quite sometime, but right when he brings her up right, she blinks quickly and opens her eyes back up. It ruins the whole effect.

Alright, the problem with this is her eye makeup. That's the only reason it looked as though she blinked. Her eyes look downcast because of the black, when, in fact, they're still open. Watch a bit more carefully.

OK. I'll admit I haven't looked for these slipups. But I do know from a well source (my cousin is a mourtician) that after the body has died, even DAYS after, that the body can twitch, blink, even moan. So whether or not it was an actual slipup, it can happen. So it still works with the movie.

Nicole Kidman also moves her arm just after Ewan McGregor pulls her towards him. He gets her arm at a weird angle and she moves it out of the way. And no matter how much you love this movie, Satine, there are mistakes in it no matter how much you deny it.
