Director Peter Weir was nominated for an Oscar for this, but I feel that he's done much better work in other movies.

Serves as a reminder of why passion is so important in life, and how literature is much more then words on a page.

If a bit heavy-handed at times, it still generally holds as deep and effective an emotional sway as it did upon release in 1989.

Few films have had such a visceral impact on me as has Peter Weir's "Dead Poets Society".

...we all know the movie was a smash hit and is dearly admired by a legion of fans. But, really, Dead Poets lays it on so thick, it's hard to believe in any of it.
