I only saw DPS in early December: I should have viewed it earlier, but it remains equally beautiful and inspiriting. Bravo, Dave, on your marvellous DPS pages. After reading your guestbook and your site, I do not feel as insane about DPS as some people ave told me. DPS does not deserve the dismissal it has received from some critics. Vive "La Société Morte De Poèts!" Carpe Diem!

Hey. I just wanted to say that Dead Poets Society is the most beautiful, the most touching, the best film ever made. It is simply enchanting and, besides, everyone of the actors performed exceptionally well. My favourite character is Todd (Ethan), because with me being almost as shy as him, he's the one I can relate to most. I haven't found yet my own Mr. Keating though!!! I would love to get in touch with other DPS fans, so PLEASE e-mail me.

Just a note - since I don't think Dave mentions it in his News section. Here in Sydney the director's cut of Picnic at Hanging Rock has just been re-released. Haven't seen it yet. I read somewhere Weir joked he was going for the Guinness Book of Record i.e. by releasing a Director's Cut that was shorter than the original release. Must see in order to find out what he decided to ditch.

Jake - 12/23/99 21:28:01

I've just been informed that there is a book called,"The Murders at Hanging Rock". Supposedly, this book tells the "true story" behind "Picnic at Hanging Rock". I am under the impression that "Hanging Rock" was total fiction. Does anyone know anything a out this book ?

I am a 23 year old aspiring filmmaker and Weir is my hero. DPS is my all time favourite film and on my 18th birthday Peter Weir sent me a reply to a letter I sent him 2 weeks earlier. He encouraged me, inspired me and even said I reminded him of himself when he first started out. He gave me the best advice on filmmaking I've ever received and it's not at all surprising that the letter is the first page you see in my portfolio or that at every filmmaking school or workshop I've ever attended, the teacher reads the letter out to inspire other students. A friend at the American Film Institue even asked for a photocopy! Peter Weir's storytelling is what I aspire to do. If I can have just a tiny piece of his talent I'll be a success. He's not just the best Aussie director - he's the ALL TIME best director. Thanks for this very deserving site! Fleur Nelson.

Congratulations for having an (unfortunately) only page dedicated to one of the greatest artists of our century. Peter Weir is so good at what he does, his films all seem to be so effortlessly made, that people don't think to give him enough credit. He' one of the few directors working today who's output has been marked with startling originality and diversity. Plus he doesn't make any bad films. So this apparent lack of contrast from other directors makes him an almost invisible entity for the public Thanks for the terrific page. Keep up the great work and good luck!!! Dan

To Peter Weir Witness is pretty lame. Although you present the viewer with some interesting themes that do relate to Americans society it would have to be the dullest, most unbearable film to watch. Including Amish people was probably your biggest mistake. They are a v ry boring people. Why didn't you pick some crazy cult or something that would make the film slightly interesting. Poor effort Pete!!

In response to Jake's question regarding "The Playmaker", I think the maker's of the book had been a little presumptuous. After "Fearless" was completed, Weir mentioned "The Playmaker" as his next project. However, that was back in 1993. Whether he scrapp d the idea or simply set it aside for later, I'm uncertain.

Jake (again) - 10/22/99 21:45:10

I recently bought a book by Thomas Kenelly called, "The Playmaker". It's a supposedly true story about a group of convicts in early Australia who put on a production of the play, "The Recruting Officer". On the book's cover it says that Peter Weir is go ng to make a film of the novel. Does anyone have any more information ?

Jake - 10/22/99 21:38:27

Does anyone out there know whar happened to the young actress's that appeared in "Picnic at Hanging Rock" ?

This is most likely the greatest film ever produced. It has greatly affwcted my life in too many ways than I can mention, but one small example is that because of Keating and his take on the power of language, I am majoring in English at Rice University. Whenever you're feeling bored or a little down, just watch this movie for instant inspiration--CARPE DIEM!!

I just finished a gut-wrenching book called Outerbridge Reach by Robert Stone (author of Dog Soldiers, which was made into a movie starring Nick Nolte). The only person I think who could do this book justice in film is Peter Weir. I wonder if he's read i .... ccg PS: Fearless is one of my favorite films of the 90s. It deserved several Academy Awards.

Mr. Weir has explored some very interesting subjects. With Fearless, DPS, and Truman, I was especially enchanted with his use of specific philosophic references. I am very interested to know more about his upcoming projects/scripts. Perhaps a Persephone Hades thing would be good.

I've been here before but noticed a couple of people wanting to know about PW's childhood. 3 books about him so far - Don Shiach's "Visions of Alternative Realities", Massimo Benvegnu's "Filmare l'Anima", and a third, "When Cultures Collide" which can be got from Amazon.com. The first two each have stuff about Weir's upbringing; I haven't read the third so don't know if it adds anything. See also Sue Mathew's interview with Weir, from her book "35 MM Dreams"; Dave has it in this very Cave, I think under "Interviews/ Articles".

You know, without specifically being a Peter Weir fan, I have managed unintentionally to see the majority of films over the past 17 years that he has directed. All based on the subject matter, so that shows that Weir tackles fascinating, provocative & co pelling stuff! Recently, I've re-discovered the haunting "Picnic at Hanging Rock" which I last saw in college & now have on video. I still have yet to see "Truman Show," "Misquito Coast" (looks like it's out-of-print - will it be re-released on video?) "The Last Wave." "Witness" is very well-done, "Green Card," tho mainstream, has unique moments, and scenes from "Gallipoli" & "Fearless" made me cry - in the latter, he managed to coax a terrific performance out of an actress I thought up to then was HO RENDOUS - Rosie Perez. Since it's been several years since I've seen "Year of Living Dangerously" & "Dead Poet's Society" (tho not one of my favorites, more like a re-hash of "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie"), it's time to rediscover them on video. I may n the future even direct a stage adaptation of "Picnic" for a local theater.

I think Peter Weirs best film was probably Dead Poets Society. For so many reasons this movie should of won the oscar for best picture. But I think those who truly are ably to understand the movie will know why. It teaches you to believe in yourself an that there are no limits, if you set your goals high enough. In the movie Neil proves that and even defies his father. The only thing he did wrong was give up on him anf his father and took the wrong path. But I absolutely loved this movie!

There was an article in the Sunday magazine today that said that Weir hardly ever watches television and picks up the paper once a week. He also prefers to reside in his Sydney suburban residence rather than live in the States- perhaps these elements that "shield" him from the glitz, the mass-produced, plastic realms of Hollywood bring a fresh, more down-to-earth, original element th t's evident in his films. He is, after all, Aussie :) I wish him luck in the Oscars. PS if anyone wants to email me feel free:)

Weir is one of my preferred film directors. One of the few times I have been moved to actual tears and a subdued sob in the movie theater seat was upon viewing the final crash sequence in Fearless. The visuals combined with the specific choice of Henr k Gorecki was almost too much for me. Fearless is one of the most repeated films I watch in my film library, and EVERY time that final sequence begins my heart leaps into my throat, my breathing gets labored, and my fists ball up with anxiety. One of my fondest memories of filmgoing is my first viewing of The Cars That Ate Paris at a small art house in 1982. I'd read about the film four years earlier and was dying to see this early work of Weir's. It's nice to know of other folks appreciative of this man's visions.

I watched the "Dead Poets Society" with my career awareness class , and i was very impressed with the movie. I feel that it really taught me a lesson in life. It taught me to think for myself and always do what i feel is right, and not to let others chose for me. I hope that many other students along with aduts will take this movie into consideration. The "Dead Poets Society" is very highly recomended.

Hello fellow Peter Weir-ian fans. I'm nineteen years old and am an aspiring filmmaker. I draw much of my inspiration from Mr. Weir's work, especially from Dead Poets Society and The Truman Show. What a bold, beautiful statement these films make! And s ch a leap of faith from Mr. Weir, as he takes two highly eccentric and energetic actors; Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. Only the genious of Weir could take these two actors out of their comedic comfort zone, and extract their dramatic talents for the sil er screen. From what I gather, this is not an easy task. I was stunned while watching the trailers for the Truman Show, as I saw the almost exaggerated beauty of Truman's manufactured life. Such bright colors! Weir is the best. Britt King

I was never the same after I saw PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK, and over the years since, Peter Weir has never let me down--never reached the heights and depths of that film, but never let me down. I'm so glad to know there are others like me out there---Weir-d s. In the next few days, I shall be reviewing PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK for my column on Peanut.org (see Rovin' & Ravin'), and I would appreciate any input or ideas. The rock is hanging.

The best thing Peter Weir ever did was join forces with Andrew Niccol for The Truman Show (Gattaca). A near perfect movie and one of the top two of 1998. I review movies on LaserDisc and DVD for Widescreen Review Magazine, so I feel my opinion is a valid ne!
