Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Judy Stone Sure, the heroes and villains are arranged in a convenient moral gallery. But the performances, Weir's adroit direction and John Seale's superb cinematography take care of that banality.
New York Daily News - 9/10 by Hank Gallo On the surface Robin Williams appears to be giving his standard performance as Prof. Keating - witty, sincere and lovable. But there's much more here.
Screen It! - 9/10 by Rory L. Aronsky Watch "Dead Poets Society" and you'll see the efforts of a filmmaker who has his own loving style in making movies.
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.
Empire Magazine - 9/10 by Angie Errigo Beautifully directed and with an Oscar-winning story.
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.
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.
USA Today - 8/10 by Mike Clark Not the worst of the countless recent movies about good kids and hidebound, authoritatian older people. It may, however, be the most shameless in its attempt to pander to an adolescent audience.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Michael Wilmington It's a literate though strained uplifter. - 8/10 by David N. Butterworth The film makes us, the audience, take a long hard look at what inspires us, what governs our motivations and determines our actions. It emotes feelings rarely felt in the movies these days. - 8/10 by James Plath As consistent and nearly as understated a performance as Robin Williams would give later in Good Will Hunting. - 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.
