Probably one of the best tragedy love-stories ever shot with a camera lens, Titanic was released in 1997 under the brilliance of James Cameron. Commenting on the script, Cameron quoted, “The story could not have been written better...The juxtaposition of rich and poor, the gender roles played out unto death (women first), the stoicism and nobility of a bygone age, the magnificence of the great ship matched in scale only by the folly of the men who drove her hell-bent through the darkness. And above all, the lesson: that life is uncertain, the future unknowable...the unthinkable possible”. (Source: Wikipedia).
