A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic. (IMDb) ( )
  DrLed | Nov 4, 2017 |
Titanic (Titanic) Regia di James Cameron. Con Brian Aherne, Rian Kathy Bates, Leonardo Di Caprio, Frances Fisher, Bernard Hill, Bill Paxton, Gloria Stuart, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane.
* E' l'ennesimo film "più costoso della storia del cinema": pare 285 milioni di dollari, oltre 500 miliardi di lire.
Mercoledì 10 aprile 1912, il Titanic la nave più grande, ricca e sicura mai costruita, intraprende il suo viaggio inaugurale che da Southampton lo porterà a New York. Alle 23,40 di domenica 14 aprile la nave si scontra con un iceberg che le apre uno squarcio di novanta metri nella fiancata. In tre ore e mezza il Titanic affonda.
Dei 2228 imbarcati se ne salvono 705. La vicenda centrale del film è l'amore tra Rose e Jack, lei di famiglia aristocratica, e lui pittore che viaggia in terza classe. Dice Cameron che il Titanic rappresenta il grande sogno umano non realizzato: la tecnologia fallita, le gerarchie sociali che determinano le precedenze di salvataggio. Nella storia c'è anche il mistero di un prezioso messaggio e gioiello scomparso e il dramma della gelosia del nobile fidanzato di Rose. Grande spettacolo non inquinato, per fortuna, dai troppi effetti e dal montaggio isterico applicato solitamente ai catastrofici.
* Drammatico; col; 194'; Usa, 1998
Golden Globes 4 pr 8 nom; Oscar 11 pr, 14 nom.

Twenty years later, this movie remains awe-inspiring. It certainly makes A Night to Remember (1958) look awfully dated and dowdy, like a frumpy old maid hopelessly hitting on indifferent gentlemen callers. And to think some people have accused Jim Cameron of plagiarising this dusty dinosaur! This is like accusing Herman Melville of plagiarising Captain Marryat.

Jim Cameron is that rare bird who is at once an accomplished screenwriter and a brilliant director. It’s a small flock. How many filmmakers can you think of who excelled in both of these rather different fields? Quentin Tarantino, Woody Allen, Frank Darabont, Oliver Stone. Impressive company of capable people, but Jim Cameron can easily stand comparison with any of them. Titanic is his best work after Terminator 2 (1991).

The direction is masterful from start to finish, from bow to stern, from keel to funnel and from the epic to the intimate. Jim Cameron is a visual poet. I don’t mean all those glorious vistas of the ship. This is more to the credit of his production design team. The sinking, of course, is a spectacle never seen before or since on the silver screen, but, again, something that many directors can do with a budget like this. I mean unique stuff like, for instance, Leo’s smoking on deck against the starry sky, the shocking contrast between the first- and third-class quarters shown in quick succession (several times), or the scenes in those flooded and claustrophobic corridors towards the end. It’s all visually smart, stunning and spectacular.

But make no mistake! Unlike some other of Jim Cameron’s wonders (e.g. Avatar), this one is a lot more than eye candy. The screenplay is a minor masterpiece of story-telling and characterisation. It was a bold idea to have the main plot told in a flashback by the old Rose and an even bolder one to exclude more or less completely Carpathia and Californian. The drama is intense, indeed titanic, and it covers every deck and every class, but there is some charming humour to relieve the tension now and then. Mr Ismay wins the gold medal with the immortal line “Freud? Who is he? Is he a passenger?”

The romance between Jack and Rose was a stroke of genius. It has been venomously denounced by men and women who want to look so tough; or they are simply emotionally crippled, poor souls. They should remember that sentimentality, like most other things, is bad only when excessive. Abusus non tollit usum. Romance is a difficult thing to write convincingly, even more so when it must be coupled with a class clash and an epic disaster. Jim Cameron has done it as well as anybody, and better than most (say, Pearl Harbor, not to mention Pompeii). He’s also managed to integrate the romance into the disaster very smoothly indeed. A few lines do fall flat and one or two coincidences are rather neat, but nothing to make fuss about.

Every great movie begins with a great script, but not every great script becomes a great movie. The great cast is a necessary, though in itself not sufficient, ingredient. Jim Cameron was lucky with his leading couple. Leo and Kate are simply perfect. Both look the parts and make the most of their lines. All sorts of sparks fly between them. The Drawing Scene is just as hot as the Spitting Contest is funny. The first meeting at the stern and the crucial conversation in the gym are gems, very well written and directed, but also beautifully acted. Even the most thick-headed moviegoers must have known even as early as 1997 that Leo was more than a teen heartthrob and Kate more than a plump sugarplum. The Basketball Diaries (1995) and Branagh’s Hamlet (1996), respectively, were enough to prove this. But in case there were still some particularly dense deniers of the obvious, Jim Cameron’s Titanic must have sunk the last debris of their doubts.

The supporting cast is star-studded like the Andromeda Galaxy. Billy Zane, to my mind one of the most versatile and underrated actors of our time, is superb as Cal Hockley, that unstable mixture of icy calm and fiery hysterics. The great Cathy Bates is a riot as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”, aka Molly “New Money” Brown. Frances Fisher is a great character actress and she doesn’t disappoint as Rose’s mightily snobbish mother; note the only scene she is alone with her daughter. Victor Garber is steel solid as the master builder of The Ship and a paragon of mathematical honesty. Bernard Hill has the toughest task as the ill-fated Captain Smith, but he is helped by a sympathetic script that turns him into a victim of the villainous Mr Ismay (the hilarious Jonathan Hyde). The Captain’s chilling line “Well, I believe you may get your headlines, Mr. Ismay” is one of the most memorable in the whole movie. Last but not least, Bill Paxton as the smooth treasure hunter and Gloria Stuart as the witty old Rose are fun to watch, though not without some poignant moments.

Does Jim Cameron tell the whole truth about those “unsinkable” 50,000 tons of Edwardian opulence and complacency which did sink more than two miles in the North Atlantic? I really don’t know, and neither does anyone else. There is no such thing as “the whole truth” in this case. Fact and fiction have been hard to separate ever since 1912. Today, 105 years later, it’s impossible to tell one from the other. Ask ten people about the last moments of Captain Smith or Thomas Andrews and you’ll get at least five different answers. Nor is official documentation any more reliable. At least 14 survivors testified they saw the ship splitting into two parts, but nobody believed them and their testimony was omitted from the official reports. Only in 1985 did Bob Ballard set the record straight.

The lessons to be learned from the Titanic are innumerable. At least those about lifeboats and icebergs, hopefully, have been learned. But the most important lesson has fallen on deaf ears, usually silenced by mawkish melodramas about the victims, the heroes, the tragedy, the ship as a hallowed graveyard and all that jazz. This lurid publicity is what Bernard Shaw strongly objected to in May 1912, enjoying a short skirmish in the press with an indignant Arthur Conan Doyle. Depressingly little has changed for the last 105 years.

The truth is simpler but far more devastating. The sinking of the Titanic was a triumph of human stupidity. No, this is the wrong word. It was something worse than stupidity. Arrogance! Stupidity, like pride, is incorrigible. Arrogance, like vanity, is a venial sin. We, human beings, have nothing to be less arrogant about than our place in nature. Perhaps one day we will learn this lesson, too. But I doubt it.

Meanwhile, Jim Cameron’s Titanic remains a fine way to spend 195 minutes. It sounds long, but it never feels so. I envy everybody who watches it for the first time. If you consider a purchase, this double-disc “Special Edition” is a nice one to have. The movie is annoyingly split between the discs, closer to the stern like the ship, but there are some nice bonuses. My favourite is the alternative ending in which the old Rose reveals she has the diamond, lets Brock hold it for a minute, and then throws it in the ocean. Brock is at first shocked, but then he bursts out laughing – much to the consternation of his colleagues. The so-called behind-the-scenes mode, which you can enjoy either separately or together with the movie, and Jim’s audio commentary (less so the other two) also contain some fascinating insights into the background of the production and the massive amounts of research and sheer toil that went into it.

An engaged woman's fiance doesn't like her new boyfriend.

I hate this movie so much. At first, during the first hour or two, I was thinking it wasn't as bad as I'd remembered it. Terrible writing, but watchable. But then it keeps getting steadily worse. By the time we got to "I'll never let go," it was so awful it made me want to scream. I have watched many a bad movie, but I can't think of any others that are so bad they make me angry. Movies I don't like because they make me angry, sure, but movies that make me angry because I don't like them? It's a weird reaction. I mean, if it's a bad movie, why do I care enough to be angry with it?
