Kenneth More essays the central role of Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller, and he's the reassuring presence throughout a film that breaks down the incident in powerful fashion.

A restrained, nearly austere ensemble drama that manages to intertwine a dozen different stories without tripping up on any of them, it relies on real-life survivor testimony for almost every line and incident, to immensely moving and dignified effect.

Baker cuts to the chase - the iceberg strikes 30 minutes in - and maintains tension with consummate skill: not an easy task when the outcome is already known.

Forget about Kate and Leo in 3D, the best Titanic movie, like the ship itself, is Belfast built by a legendary Irish filmmaker.

The clearest, most honorable cinematic depiction of the Titanic disaster… a classy depiction of how human beings in 1912 faced life and death in the fabled tragedy.
