    We have to enjoy life, every day. Seize the day, or Carpe Diem. That’s what “Dead Poets Society” wants to tell us. This movie doesn’t only teach us a wise lesson, but also gives us goosebumps.

    John Keating is a new teacher at the Weltons Academy, a school for boys. The teenage boys are all pushed by their parents,…

    This movie hits me harder every time I watch it. I was a total mess with this re-watch. lol Such a brilliant film though. Inspirational, heartwarming, heartbreaking, with great performances especially from the late great Robin Williams. Probably one of my favorites.

    "We don't write and read poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, Law, Business, Engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."

    A lire le synopsis, on se dit qu'on va tomber sur un énième film où le professeur est détesté par ses collègues et l'environnement scolaire de par ses méthodes bien qu'il parvient à se faire adopter par une classe d'élèves difficiles ... mais en fait cela va plus loin que cela !

    Le film dégage une certaine poésie dans les textes bien sur mais aussi dans la contemplation de la nature, les thèmes abordés (l'amour, les rêves, ...) et la…

    Conformity is one of the most influential factors in life. Some rise about of it and others simply follow what the rest are doing. Dead Poet society and the Truman Show, both directed by Peter Weir, show the main characters breaking from that conformity that they were subject to their whole life.

    Just last week, I finished my junior year of college now facing my senior year. During my second semester, I had to take a U.S. history course, with…

    Another favourite actor dies. But this death hits closer to home because Robin’s role as Mr Keating was the closest to a mentor I ever had and because the film Dead Poets Society changed my life. It may sound dramatic and exaggerated but it’s utterly true. There is a before and after Dead Poets Society me, and if anyone could trace my lifeline, he could see the exact point where the me that I am today came to…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A life lesson of a movie which works thanks to the performances, the traditional direction, the smart script and the wonderful score, not to mention the bagpipes. But it's mainly down to Robin Williams. He puts in a sublime performance here. Perfectly balanced and even more poignant now, especially with his introductory scene here. It's surprising the movie works as well as it does given its ostentatious setting. But even if the setting is not that conventional the story and…
