Dead Poets Society is one of the best movies I have ever seen. In a society where most movies have trite, ambiguious, or assinine plots, this movie does what Mr. Keating does, it breaks the barrier. Producers, actors, and the like should all be envious of those envolved in the screen play and acting of this movie. I first watched this movie in the early 1990's, and didn't quite understand it because of my young age. I had forgotten about it, until my Junior year of High School, when my AP English III teacher (who constantly reminds me of the charector Robin Williams portrays, for which I am truely faithful) showed DPS to our class before going into Realism Literature. As I watched it, I fell in love with one of the best movies of all time. For those who will never have a teacher like I have, who does her best to 'strike out and find new ground,' as Mr. Keating says, I truely feel sorry for you.

I've watched Witness in my school, in Film Studies 11 and it was very good for the 80's, and was pretty suspensfull. Peter Wier is an excellent director, usage of light, all the "director's hints" in the movie... it's all good!

Hello I just watched your the movie DPS and i feel that it was a good one to say the least. I came to this site looking for answers to quetions such as "Who is to blame for Neil Perry's death?" athough i feel that Mr.Keating was a powerful influence in Neil's l fe he was not to blame. As of now Iam doin a report and i feel that Mr. Perry , Mrs. Perry and Neil himself are to blame for his death. Without support, understanding and communication Neil felt he had no other choice then to take his own life.

This movie is my favorite movie of all times. It provides everything a quality movie should. Laughter and tears. love and happiness. it provides a sense of closeness to the characters. and of course, it makes you feel as though robin williams is teaching ou the divine secrets of poetry too. i recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. it will forever be stacked away on the dusty shelves of my tv movies.

Dear Peter: In a society littered with trite screen plays, gratuitous violence in film, and just plain stupid movie dialogue, Dead Poets Society a refreshing deviation from all of that other crap. Thanks for making an honest film.

Dead Poet's Society is mirror of my all fellings. It really helped me to understand how a little body like mine can be full of love and poetry. The world needs action and we're aldeady action. We're humans, we're not products, we're not stone, we're not b x. We're just like rivers that's always bringing new water, clean water for everyboby. This river can not stop , our feeling can not stop either. I'm brazilian and I'm just 15, but I can see how life is fast and how we need life and how the world needs ourlives. It's the best film I have ever seen. Thank you.

Dear Mr. Peter Weir, My husband has written a beautiful screen play. It is one of those stories that will bring out tears and laughter. It is a story in Cuba and the characters are colorful, and it will certainly leave a very warm feeling in everyone's heart. Can you please get a chance to read it?

I am an American English teacher in Japan. The pressure put upon schoolkids here is similar to that in DPS--and sometimes kids seek suicide as the only way to die with some remnant of honor in their lives. We are studying this movie and its messages and parallels. So far, the students are responding well, and are picking up much much more from it than mere entertainment value and/or internationalisation. Thank you for making this film. Incidentally, my mother recently confessed to letting me make MY o n day instead of trying to live vicariously through me when the film was released-- (I was in college at the time) and because of her change of heart, I was free to live my own life, which ultimately brought me to Japan in the first place. There has to b some poetic irony in that. Just wanted to drop a word of thanks here, so thanks.

The dead poets society is one of the most amazing films i have ever seen. Most films we see them once and then forget about them, but this one touches me deeply every time i see it... probably because it touches lives greater issues, and the hard quest of being ourselfs in society. So thank you soooooooooooo much for this webpage.

Answer That you are here--that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse." The "Dead Poet's Society" was and is one of my ultimate favorite film that I have yet seen. The theme of not neccesarily living a life already planned for you is a recurring one. Encore to Mr. Keating and Neil Perry.

Hey you all out there!!! "I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberatly. I wanted to live free to suck out all the marrow of live", to seize the day and to make my life extraodinary, but I found out, that it's a hard way to go. First you have to know what you want, wha could give your life a special meaning and full fill it. I think, before you go out and express yourself to otheres, you have to go inside yourself, because there you'll find the way you have to go. "Two roads diverged in a wood. And I - I took the one less travaled by. And that has made all the difference..." Keep on believing in your dreams and Carpe diem!!! Your time will come, just follow your heart... Peace&Love

Dear Crazy Dave - What makes you such a die hard fan - does he pay you or appreciate all this work? Also, your page inspired me to do a report on his movies and him as a film maker. Can you tell me what you think makes his films so distinctively differe t from others? Settings? Attention to scenery? costumes? what can I say to make my report dazzle my professor?

I first saw DPS when I was about 14 yaers old. I'm 19 now and I have seen the film dozens of times and I can still watch it over and over again. To me it is one of the best movies ever made, with brilliant actors and it has really taught me important thin s about life. 'the powerfull play goes on and you may contribute a verse.' This is surely something to remember!

Firstly thankyou! This site is by far the best DPS society site I have enjoyed exploring.The movie has always intrigued me,puzzling me age 13 when I first saw it,to rediscovering and making more sense of it a second time round now aged 19. having the aid of a highschool ed cation behind me. I love this beautiful movie,it inspires us to fight on,to find meaning and good in our lives to look beyond what we think are our limits. Words can't be used to say how much this film means to me. I was searching for meaning to life.I found alot in Dead Poets Society.

Comments:
The first great film of the Australian new wave, Weir's 1975 mystery appears at first to be a thin tale of schoolgirls disappearing at the turn of the century when their repressive teachers take them on an outing to a sacred aborigine site near Victoria. On another level the level on which all great movies happen it's a richly suggestive experience that renews the possibilities of cinema at the same time that it challenges our perceptions of reality. Its use of a schoolgirl as visionary seems tongue-i -cheek at first, but it gradually gains resonance. With its expressive use of slow motion, precise compositions, gradual dissolves and lazy flute music, the movie is a voluptuous poem of nature and youthful yearning, as well as a teasing, mock-religious allegory, complete with suggestions of virgin sacrif ce, sexual initiation, mystical deliverance from repression and ascension into heaven. Weir was attracted to the open-ended nature of the story "precisely because it didn't resolve itself . . . That's why I made the film." This version of Picnic at Hanging Rock is a "director's cut" that's actually seven minutes shorter than the original film, which clocked in at 115 minutes. Weir, whose latest American movie is The Truman Show, wanted to tighten the picture, and it hasn't een appreciably hurt by the cuts. What's most noticeable is how gorgeous Russell Boyd's cinematography now looks; did the movie look this wonderful when it was first shown? Look on the German Page: http://members.tripod.de/picnic

alas--a page of enjoyment and wit. I grew up with D.P.S. and still watch it every now and then to rekindle the D.P.S. fervor. this page was sooo funny and so well done. By far, this is the greatest movie of all time. So wonderful. Aaaah,I can go on living now that I know well-deserved tribute has been paid to those wonderful boys of Welton. Knox Overstreet is the ideal male, in case anyone is wondering. But Neil, "oh Neil, oh Neil my son" how can we forget you? The most suave one, is of course--GNAWANDA, ah yes, the risk-taker. Then we have Pittsy, one of the not-so-smart fellas. Pittsy all the way. And now my medley: HI I'M NEIL PERRY--hi, i'm todd anderson...rumor has it, you did summer school...Mr. Keating? Mr Keating? Mr. Keating? O Captain my captain??? BOYS...Then I saw the congo, sneakin' through the black, cuttin' through the forest with a golden jack...be GONE J.Evans Pritchard! RIP! RIP!...She walks in beauty like the night..."NO".....Charlie, why do they swoon?....This desk set wants to fly...Study group tonight, Minx aced Latin, I didn't quite flunk French and...make your lives extraordinarrrry...oh that's R CH Charlie, like you tell your parents off--Mr. Future Lawyer and Mr. Future Banker...OghaaayyZoIdohnlygidanymorethenyoudooo...I'm not LIKE you Neil; you say things and people listen....but father...you're going to med school and you're going to be a doct r...carpe diem...Todd, wake up, Neil's dead...Sucking on the marrow does not mean choking on the bone...Mr. Keating--they made us do it--we didn't want to...O Captain, my Captain. p.s.- If anyone knows where I can meet Know Overstreet, please let me know. :) ahahaha.

Hy. My name is Sandra, a transsexuell woman from Germany. I am a fan of the Film "Picnic at Hanging Rock". One of the best movies i've ever seen. It`is my favorite movie on this World. An engrossing tale, seductive and unnerving, stylish and entertaining. Rapturous photography and ravishing music build a mood that holds you spellbound throughout. Filled with bracing colors, spooky sounds and tantalizing flashes if imagery. I search the original Music "Picnic at hanging Rock" composet by Bruce Smeaton. Can ou help me? Hoo is the "Picnic at hanging Rock" Soundtrack? Look on my German page of "Picnic at Hanging Rock".

I have used the movie for English III classes and have jointly created a video guide which we use. I am creating an Dead American Poet's society allowing the students to have a chance to stand on the desk and recite a poem, or take a field trip down the nature trail where they can recite all the way to our moss covered pond. We're really having fun wi h this! I would appreciate any input or ideas to place this in the classroom.

Sigh.. even just thinking about my favorite DPS scenes my mind wanders. I love the way I laugh at the boys' antics, cry in angony for them, yell in anger and mostly, how the movie makes me think. Everything Keating (Willaims) says in this movie can be a plied to your own life. It's a wonderful movie and I truely love it.

I have just finished watching DPS for an Advanced Comp. class. I must say that it is one of the best, most powerful, most truthful (even though it is fictional), and most beautful films I have ever seen. Although I believe the script helped greatly in thi matter, the script could not have "come alive," as it were, without Mr. Weir. It is plainly evident that he seized the day with this film. Thank you, Mr. Weir, you have given America another great film to cherish, contemplate, and reflect upon.

I did not realise that Peter Weir made soooo many films! I was searching for a chat site to chat about DPS. I watch the film about 1 every 2 days. Its a great movie but a sad ending! The music ohhhh, I love the song when they fisrt go to the woods to open the DPS meeting,( whats it called?)Whats happened to those actors since? I would like to find out. Except RW ofcourse! Im also surprised on how big the web page is! Great Web site but please it needs a chat site! For DPS "Carpe Diem" Thats sieze the day, gather the rose buds while he may. I would love to get to know any other DPS fans out there. I must have first saw the movie about 10 years ago. Please email me if u r fan. "O Captain my Captain."

Just wanted to say how much I like your page. I think Weir might be the most exciting visual and ideological direction working. I recently wrote an article for the local paper and put Fearless on the top 10 movies of the decade, with Truman Show on honora le mention. Fearless was a bold, fascinating movie and might have been stupid, pointless, and divertingly strange under any director but Weir and any actor but Bridges. Great page!

I just can say I love the movie. I watched it for several times and I'm trying to follow "Carpe Diem". I think this slogan is something everyone has to interpretate and find out for his/herself. I'm still searching for the deeper meaning and try to make my life extraodinary. And sometimes it isn't as easy as some expect it to be. For me it's sometimes even hard to continue, but I hope I'll succede and lead a full and lucky life!
