Interesting.....Well, in the movie, the old woman who does the voodoo puts a spell on the person she displaces, causing that person to become catatonic...
The explanation you just gave provides a reasoning for why the voodoo woman cast that spell...

"The Self" is not a permanent phenomena, thus there is nothing that can be defined as a "Self". The "totality" is made up of aggregates, or parts, that are ever changing, so it is impossible to definitively label it as anything. It seems it is a misconception of many people to relate this word, "Self", as something to identify with, egoically/personally, which is why the Buddha never acknowledged this Hindu idea as true.
