Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Judy Stone Hurrah! Poetry and passion, comedy and tragedy are fused into one absolutely marvelous affirmation of independent spirit in Dead Poets Society. [2 June 1989, Daily Notebook, p.E1]
Variety - 9/10 by Variety Staff Story sings whenever Williams is onscreen. Screen belongs just as often to Leonard, who as Neil has a quality of darting confidence mixed with hesitancy. Hawke, as the painfully shy Todd, gives a haunting performance.
The New Republic - 9/10 by Stanley Kauffmann Nothing about this film sounds, as described, novel. Yet it grips, because it has been made with plentiful feeling and vigor. [June 26, 1989]
TIME Magazine - 9/10 by Richard Schickel Williams, who has comparatively little screen time, has come to act, not to cut comic riffs, and he does so with forceful, ultimately compelling, simplicity.
LarsenOnFilm - 9/10 by Josh Larsen I can't help but melt underneath this movie: it chisels away the cynic and gets at the sap.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Dennis Schwartz Falters when it goes for too much heart-tugging manipulation.
Empire Magazine - 8/10 by Angie Errigo Beautifully directed and with an Oscar-winning story.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Michael Wilmington Commands respect and affection. [2 June 1989, Calendar, p.6-1]
USA Today - 8/10 by Mike Clark Williams is impressively restrained as well as funny, so fans need not fret. It only means that instead of Good Morning, Preppies, we're given a bittersweet, even eerie Goodbye, Mr. Hip. [2 June 1989, Life, p.1D] - 8/10 by Jason Zingale Tom Schulman's heartfelt script takes the main character's relationships with Keating above and beyond the usual student-teacher connection.
Combustible Celluloid - 7/10 by Jeffrey M. Anderson It's not so easy to dismiss Dead Poets Society. For all its faults, it still has as much power as it ever did.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 6/10 by Emanuel Levy Though sentimental and contrived, this valentine to charismatic, dedicated teachers is extremely well acted (even by Robin Williams) and it does make you feel good about loving literature and poetry.
