Titanic will go down as one of the biggest films in the history of entertainment. No other film received as many accolades as Titanic did. The film was a blockbuster and after it ended, everyone was in tears.
Amidst all the tears, we had one very valid question in mind. Why did Rose let Jack die? I am sure even you wanna know that, right?
the film won a lot of Oscars and the Director Cameron tried putting light on the question.
“Obviously it was an artistic choice, the thing was just big enough to hold her, and not big enough to hold him. I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we’re having this discussion 20 years later. But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die,” Cameron explained.
“Whether it was that, or whether a smoke stack fell on him, he was going down. It’s called art, things happen for artistic reasons, not for physics reasons,” Cameron added.
A Happy Ending
Cameron stood with his script firmly and stated that the Mythbusters crew were “full of s***” for their scientific determination that the door was large enough to hold two people.
Whatever the reason is, we’d loved a happy ending here. Or would we?
