Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Judy StoneSure, 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 GalloOn the surface Robin Williams appears to be giving his standard performance as Prof. Keating - witty, sincere and lovable. But there's much more here.
Variety - 9/10 by Variety StaffStory 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.
Screen It! - 9/10 by Rory L. AronskyWatch "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 SchickelWilliams, 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 ErrigoBeautifully directed and with an Oscar-winning story.
LarsenOnFilm - 9/10 by Josh LarsenI can't help but melt underneath this movie: it chisels away the cynic and gets at the sap.
USA Today - 8/10 by Mike ClarkNot 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.
rec.arts.movies.reviews - 8/10 by David N. ButterworthThe 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.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Michael WilmingtonIt's a literate though strained uplifter.
