James Cameron wanted to make the world perfect and to scatter away the ideals of bureaucratic society. Rose and Jack are two poles apart, but Cameron managed to show that there is much humanity and patience in the inner world of Rose and presenting Jack as an open-hearted young man. We can read in the lines of their dialogue that these two beloved ones are fits. “JACK: Rose, you’re no picnic … you’re a spoiled little brat even, but under that you’re a strong, pure heart, and you’re the most amazingly astounding girl I’ve ever known and—You’re amazing … and I know I have nothing to offer you, Rose. I know that. But I’m involved now. You jump, I jump, remember? I can’t turn away without knowin’ that you’re goin’ to be alright” (Movie Script). Jack wanted to instill hope in Rose’s heart. He had no doubts that this girl is a diamond in a big mass of bureaucrats. She was made of different dough…That is why JACK said: “I don’t think so. They’ve got you in a glass jar like some butterfly, and you’re goin’ to die if you don’t break out. Maybe not right away, ’cause you’re strong. But sooner or later the fire in you is goin’ to go out” (Movie Script). Rose did not want to be subjected to this young arrogant man, but she realized that he wishes her no negative feelings and emotions and he just wants her to be happy. The scene, where Rose wants to jump in the ocean’s abyss and is stopped by Jack is one of the most emotional and impressive in the whole film. Jack Dowson is presented as a light color on the background of a grey mass of such people’s society. He is imprisoned with people from a lower social class, but he wants to scatter those differences off and develop his own positive and peaceful world for people with no class differences. In accordance with Marxist’s perspective, this episode illustrates a dominance of a working class over the class of authorities. Jack has more phrases and he tries to persuade Rose to give up her subjection to the rules of her world and leave independently. Reality of this episode in particular and the film in general can be interpreted through prism of a class struggle. Cameron showed that upper-class passengers did not only live under a perfect conditions on the upper deck and were bathing in luxury, but were also “above” all other patients from the lower decks. With a strong outburst of a catastrophe passengers from lower class were locked on their lower decks and they had to sacrifice their lives in the name of the upper-class passengers’ survival. Cameron was thinking about the difference between the classes in a broad sense and every details of the picture illustrated that people from poor class are not worse than people from upper class. Marx wanted to change the society with the help of his doctrines and theoretical developments, but he was always thinking that the class can exist independently and the individuals cannot change class relations to the greatest extent. The individuals are defined by their social system of their existence. Marxists underline that their system of class exists as the objective fact. Jack Dowson had nothing more to do but just to change his ideas and break through a centennial wall of worn-out stereotypes. A capitalist disaster can be compared with a great catastrophe of Titanic.
