A bi-racial couple embarks in the Titanic with their two daught I think there must be a thousand books about the sinking of the Titanic, fiction and non-fiction. A bi-racial couple embarks in the Titanic with their two daughters and their third child on the way, with hopes of finding a better life across the ocean, only to be pulled into a horrible tragedy that will destroy their family and future.
Needless to say, this is a heartbreaking story that brought tears to my eyes more than once. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. About Sylvester Murray.
Cameron neatly gives Jack his central speech at a first class dinner he has been invited to where he is dressed in a tuxedo with slicked back hair. Despite the alienating effect of a framing device involving a modern day expedition to the wreck and a year-old survivor narrating the story in flashbacks, Cameron intends not to distance the audience but to go straight for the guts. The opening moments of the film consist of sepia-tinted moving pictures of the Titanic as it departed from Southampton with passengers waving goodbye to well-wishers.
This is fabricated footage — a fictive historical construct — but the mission of the film is to recreate living, breathing history. As her story begins, the corridors of the wreck we are navigating through begin to regain their form and colour and the Titanic, with a flourish, melts into life. It is a splendid, magical and enchanting technique.
This collapsing of the past and present, perhaps imitated unconsciously from the closing sequence of The Godfather Part II, is at the essence of the tragic note that Cameron is hoping to strike. It is used a second time when the ill-fated lovers are reunited. They exchange their first kiss on the bow with the camera soaring around them rapturously and the score swelling up.
This is perhaps the defining moment of the film. Gradually, their bodies disintegrate into ghost-like forms as the image dissolves to the wreck below. Cameron is emphasising the melancholy of their doomed situation. At the end of the film, the same technique is again employed to powerful emotional effect.
As it is brought back to life, we find Jack waiting at the top the Grand Staircase. The lovers embrace to the applause of the cast. The juxtaposition of past and present enhances the sense of loss.talsingtakto.ml
A replica of the Titanic was constructed for the making of the film. After the boarding of Rose, Cal and Cathy, we cut to Jack, who wins his ticket in a card game. Jack tells Rose, as they bob on the freezing Atlantic, that winning his ticket was the best thing that ever happened to him because it brought him to her. The exhilarating sequence, involving the departure of the Titanic, with synthesiser music being pumped out to adorn the ship, climaxes as Jack and Fabrizio lean over the bow of the ship.
This often makes for heavy handed and automatic social satire. Cal Hockley would not be out of place as a stage villain in a nineteenth century melodrama. Such modernity invited the hubris that has become part of Titanic lore. Even after the ship has struck the iceberg, one passenger tells another that he has missed the fun as he chucks him a souvenir of ice. The iceberg is merely an object of curiosity. The fate of the Titanic and the lovers is also inextricable here. And Cameron adds a new twist.
When Titanic begins to sink, the film becomes what it was destined to be all along — an action picture.
