    Peter Weir is physically incapable of making a bad movie, it seems. This isn't his best - it's just too poncy and aimless and slow in parts - but it's got some great moments and the ending packs a punch. This is probably where Mork first dipped his toe into those inspirational-cum-maudlin waters that led to his decline in favour. But he's nicely balanced here, and used sparingly. It's all about these ivy league boys, debunking the tract that those pompous schools are just about rugby and buggery. Not JUST anyway...

    Inspiring, moving and very joyful, "Dead Poets Society" is a sweet movie about, basically, "seizing the day". Robin Williams and the students all give terrific performances as Williams reflects the perfect teacher and the students feel like actual students through their emotions and conversations. The cinematography is beautiful and the way how the screenplay ties in all of the students' stories make it more of a powerful experience, showing how much Williams' character made them feel like they could do…

    Listen to ScreeningNotes and I discuss this film and much more on our podcast, Movies Now and Then.

    I found this film to be a moody and surprisingly effective drama about a boys boarding school in 1950’s America. The story is about how a passionate and unorthodox teacher awakened the inner artist in a group of students, and disrupted the ridged framework of stilled excellence of the institution.

    I was not surprised to find out that this film was directed…

    This hit me like a ton of bricks. I think because Robin Williams was in it I assumed it wouldn't be that emotional of a movie, but obviously it was. This was one of the first serious movies that made me appreciate film in general, but I'm not sure why. It was one of the first realistic movies I could sit through and enjoy. This movie seems pretentious at some points nowadays, but I still remember my first reaction to it.

    Of the 20,000+ movies I've seen in my lifetime this is still my worst movie of all time. I thought is was back in 1989 when I stumbled out of the theater scoffing "Man, did that suck." ----------->(26 years later) ------>and it still does....hard. Fucking stand on table hypocrites.

    "Oh Captain, my Captain"

    Si pudiera definir Dead Poet Society en una sola palabra diría que es genuina. Pero no puedo definir un trabajo tan maravilloso de esta manera.

    Y lo que sustenta a ese único adjetivo que le di a poco más de dos horas de metraje es como usa la poesía como pilar argumental para transmitir las pasiones y exponer las inseguridades de la adolescencia, siendo simple y encantadora al mismo tiempo, creando optimismo en cada uno de…
