Critic Reviews for Titanic
Surprisingly fact-based at times, complete nonsense at others, yet ultimately inextricable from the evil regime that created it. A fascinating case study in how propaganda bends facts to suit its own agenda.
Neither the first nor the best film telling the story of the doomed ocean liner, the 1943 German version is nonetheless fascinating.
As filmmaking, it's not much to get excited about, but as a curio, it's something else again.
Audience Reviews for Titanic
The Nazi propaganda film Titanic is incredibly bizarre yet imminently fascinating. Aside from a few names, the ship, and the iceberg, there's no resemblance to the real people and events. In this version greedy president of the White Star Line, Bruce Ismay, pushes the Titanic's speed in order to set a new world record in hopes of raising the company's stock price and winning a prestigious Blue Ribbon; meanwhile the ship's only German officer, Petersen, attempts to warn passengers and crew that an impending disaster awaits if the ship isn't slowed down before they reach the ice fields that lie ahead. The film is appalling on so many levels, yet it's rather interesting to see how things have been distorted to fit the anti-British narrative. An obscene piece of propaganda, Titanic failed spectacularly (forgotten almost immediately after it was released) and sank into obscurity.
