Jaime Decided To Watch Titanic As Many Times As Possible In A 24-Hour Period ― Watch #5
Something that I think is kind of amazing is that, despite the film being centered around Jack and Rose, literally every person is important. It's very telling to me that we see the deaths of every character who's remotely important. Not just the Captain and Fabrizio, even; we see Rose's maid Trudy as she slides down the boat into the sea, and we watch as the girl Fabrizio dances with loses her grip and falls when the boat is vertical. This film is incredibly unsubtle and non-specific in how all the non-Jack and Rose characters are written, but that doesn't make them less important. I'm a giant nerd so I was reading a bit of a coffee table book on the film while watching and in the foreword Cameron talks about wanting to make sure that the audience would feel for all 1,500 people who died, and I can say with absolute certainty that he succeeds.
