is there anyone else with me on this?
and the mini series?
it was on tv last night here in New Zealand.
you see its not so much the cinematography, or the costumes, because i adore them
its the subject
and the disturbedness of it all
once they hit the ice berg
i cant watch
i’m so disturbed i even feel like throwing up
and i am certain i wont sleep for the night
i first saw the movie after been on a 12 day beach mission with a bunch of young people from church
me and the carload of people that drove 6 hours back home decided to go to the movie, it had just come out
so before going home to shower or even to eat
ended up in row 3 on the end
i was cold, hungry and peed a lot
yes all factors that contributed to my instense dislike of the movie
but it got to that point again in it
when they lock the lower class into their lower levels
and they fill the life boats with the rich, the few rich
and when it all goes pear shape
the children, the mothers, the fathers, the newly weds, the HUMAN BEINGS
the injustice stinks, reeks, disturbs
but really its more than that
what i feel most
when i watch titanic
that we’re on the boat ourselves
and its going down
and we know the way of rescue and are at the lifeboats
but are we taking the other people with us
or locking them out and shoving them out of our way or indifferently not caring
the gospel is the way, the rescue
the boat is going down
will i share what hope i have, what certainty i have?
