TITANIC: The Final Word with James Cameron @ The Flicks 1 + 2
(120 mins, documentary)
Excellent documentary has director James Cameron sitting down with eight experts as they try to discover what really happened that tragic night when over 1,500 died.
The nine men are basically locked in a room where they look at updated data, new animation, actual photos and various other bits of information. The group basically want to know why the ship sank so quickly, why it broke in two and at various speeds that all of this happened.
People can say what they want about the attitude or cockiness of Cameron but there’s no denying that he knows how to make a movie. This documentary was meant to be his final word on the subject and it’s clear that he wanted it to be the final word on what really happened that night.
We also get some beautiful diagrams of the ocean floor and we get to see where everything was located. The documentary ends with some very interesting segments including one where they debate what could have been done to save everyone on board.
History buffs and those just curious with the romance of Titanic should really enjoy this documentary. Who knows if it will really be Cameron’s final word on the subject but it’s certainly a terrific document of the events.
