Still inspiring after 30 years - Dead Poets Society review by Cliff

Spoiler Alert
17/09/2018

This film has lost none of its power since it was made nearly thirty years ago. It took me nearly a week to get over it, repeating "They're only actors" to myself, over and over. It poignantly demonstrates the tragic consequences when the unstoppable force of imagination and creativity meets the immovable object of the establishment. You watch this and you think of the four students shot and killed in a peaceful demonstration at Ohio University, you think of flowers placed in the guns of armed soldiers, you think of the hopes of so many young talented sons and daughters dashed on the rocks of indifference and militarism. This is beautifully and sensitively played out. What a great soul we have lost with Robin Williams.
