    Although the storyline is a bit podgy at times, you can't deny how unbelievably perfect that ending is.

    A fitting tribute to Robin Williams. He was best we'd ever seen, and he left us too soon. Just like Mr. Keating. (OCMC).

    I re-watched Dead Poets Society for an upcoming Grading the Teachers column, and my bland critique is that it's "really easy to watch." As an adult, I was still minimally inspired by it, and I definitely didn't catch all the gay subtext being wielded around with the Neil character when I saw it before. Even if the Josh Charles subplot feels a lot smaller than anything else going on, this works, especially as an anti-nostalgia piece.

    I was wrong. This movie works.

    I had very mixed feelings about it when it opened. And while I now find the script to be a bold and beautiful thing, I do think it's a step down for Peter Weir as a visual artist. (It has none of the riveting imagery of Picnic at Hanging Rock. And it overreaches a bit in its finale. ("MUST. MAKE. EVERYBODY. CRY.") But my original objections to the film were about a sense that…

    This movie was not all that complex but it captured friendship perfectly and drew you in with genuine and relatable characters as well as some very powerful emotional situations. Robin Williams being his usually likeable self does an excellent job playing a charming and charismatic teacher that anyone would be lucky to have. Ethan Hawke in one of his first on screen roles shows early signs of greatness and does an excellent job here delivering a nuanced and emotional performance.…

    I have a confession. This is my first time watching Dead Poets Society. I can't believe it's 25 years old. I have been meaning to watch it many times, but it wasn't until Robin Williams passed away that I got around to it. Well, I'm really glad that I finally watched it.

    Megragadó felnövéstörténet, erős karakterekkel, jó kor ábrázolással, az első szerelemről és a különböző nézőpontok bemutatásáról. Ó kapitány, kapitányom!
