One review

  • If you say that it’s Robin Williams’ best film ever, and without doubt one of his best performances, you will not hear me object to it! Cause I would agree. Williams does a magnificent job. Because usually he covers his characters with too much funny faces and joking around, so that it gets a bit tiring after a while. But in “Dead Poets Society”, he masterfully combines his genious comedy-talent with his more serious side of acting and it’s a winning combination.

    Peter Weir’s directing is awesome, and the combination of a great story, excellent acting from all actors involved, solid camerawork and both humour and drama, makes this one of my all time highs! If you want a film where you can sit back and just watch without thinking, then do NOT see this film. However, if you wish to see a film that shows us to never underestimate ourselves and to always strive for the best, this is the film for you. A great inspirational and moving film!
