    Once I heard the devastating news of Robin Williams’ untimely death, I, like many others, wanted to dive back into the man’s work. I started with Dead Poets Society because it had been years since I’d seen it and the film had been on my mind lately. I’m glad to say it still holds up.

    We don't read and write 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. And 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. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled…

    It's too bad for Robin Williams that Daniel Day Lewis starred in "My Left Foot" in the same year as this movie came out because he kills it in this role. After over twenty years it's still a moving and effective reminder to "carpe diem."

    Some of the cultural appropriation (the tribal dance and such) by the boys in the club and the scene where one of them feels up the cheerleader at a party while she sleeps on the couch leave a bad taste. But this movie still tears me to shreds. A little Peter Weir, a heartbreaking Robert Sean Leonard and one of Robin Williams' best performances go an awfully long way.

    Esta es una de las películas que no se debe dejar de ver.
    Te enseña a valorar la poesía, ver las cosas parado desde tu escritorio, con otra perspectiva de las cosas, encontrando lo que de veras te apasiona aunque mueras por ello.

    Carpe Diem, nunca tan bien usado.

    After his death, the world went back and praised all of Robin William's films. And what tends to happen when a celebrity dies, the public loves everything about them. Now, I'm definitely not here to bash Williams or his films, all I am here for is to tell you how deserving this movie is of that praise. Ultimately when you see a movie, you want it to spark an emotion. This film is an emotional roller coaster the whole way…

    This film kindled my love for poetry. They don't make movies like this anymore.

    At the Oscar ceremony in 1990, Dead Poets Society was nominated in four categories, winning one. Director Peter Weir was nominated, but Rob Reiner (for When Harry Met Sally...) wasn't, despite having helmed a genuinely funny, sweet and intelligent romantic comedy. The film itself was nominated, and yet Crimes and Misdemeanors - one of my favourite films of all time, which explores existential themes such as guilt, morality and self-expression - was not. Dead Poets Society's Tom Schulman won Best…
