    Err....what does this film try to say? Carpe diem? That's it? Okay....

    I think it's overrated. It's just a feel good film for me.

    I am not yet qualified, and so are my words, and so I cannot give justice to Peter Weir and his great mind. (See, great cannot even make up for it.) So I won't even try.

    I am not really the type of person who re-watches a movie, because I always wanted to be surprised, and also, I have an attention span of about 7 minutes. But I still re-watch this movie.

    Okay, that's the best I can do. I mean, just watch it.

    "Oh Captain, my Captain!"

    What I found most interesting about this film is that it involved rich private school kids instead of the cliché lower class,those of which are highly predictable. Seeing the student's lives being controlled by their parents and having absolutely no say about their future,sets a tone of desolation and hopelessness.

    Unlike other films such as Stand and Deliver or Freedom Writers, the teacher,Robin Williams' character,does not play a significant role in changing the students' lives. Instead…

    The themes of "dream/ideal" and "art" has been overly abstract, the messages corresponds with background of that time(in America), but is it really fun to watch all those cliches?

    Not very subtle, which makes it very effective.

    Review In A Nutshell:

    Dead Poets Society is the story of young men who were impacted by the unorthodox methods of a new teacher.

    This is one of those films where it isn't about the plot but instead about the ideas and the messages it is trying to convey. This was an approach that was also found on another film by Peter Weir entitled "Witness" which so happens to be a personal favourite of mine. The film's themes of expressing…

    After having heard about it for many years, two friends of mine finally convinced me to watch this classic. Although I do concede that the film was truly inspiring in its most emotional moments and able to shed light on the beauty of literature, there was something about it that I disliked. Perhaps it was the slightly contrived plot, the tragedy's lack of build-up, superfluous romantic subplot and heavy-handed direction that annoyed me. Nevertheless, its final moments and fine performances from its cast managed to melt my cold, dead heart.

    Robin Williams. Now there's a quandary.

    Is he the most underrated actor in Hollywood? Nay, the world?

    Is he anyone's favourite actor? And if he was, who would admit it?

    In Dead Poets Society, he comes to act. Not to cut some comic riffs. He. Gives a premium performance. In fact the whole film is hampered by the fact that he is just not given enough screen time. But it is testament to the Oscar winning story, and beautiful direction…

    Eu imagino que haja um concenso quanto a qualidade do filme em si. A diferença é que, para mim, não se trata simplesmente de um filme agradável, antes de tudo, trata-se de uma fonte de inspiração. Qualquer pessoa que sonhe em ser professor pelo ideal de transformação assistirá a este filme com um olhar especial, como se estivesse sentindo a materialização do próprio sonho.
    Sociedade Dos Poetas Mortos nos instiga a reflexões importantes. A enfemeridade da vida é um dos…
