Dead Poets' Society
Dead Poets Society review
Viewing this film the second time around have changed my views about my rating. A group of friends who were influenced by the methods of John Keating (Robin Williams) form the Dead Poets Society: Neil Perry (Robert Sean Leonard), Todd Anderson (Ethan Hawke), Knox Overstreet (Josh Charles), Charlie Dalton (Gale Hansen), Richard Cameron (Dylan Kussman), Steven Meeks (Allelon Ruggiero), and Gerard Pitts (James Waterston). Good cast with an impressive performance from Robin Williams. The movie has elegant cinematography and an intellectual screenplay. One of the inspiring films that makes sense that deals with peer pressure, friendship, free thinking and morality (the school system being its biggest antagonist). Some memorable quotes: John Keating - "There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for." "No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world." "Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary." Dead Poets Society is a well executed movie that inspires individualism and choice.
