Naturally, I'm a sucker for any film that says the establishment is crap, and getting straight A's in school isn't what life's all about.  Dead Poets Society is everything you look for in a film: dramatic, intense, funny, intense and straight from the heart.  This was Robin Williams' role of a lifetime.  Now, when will the world catch up with movies like this, that basically say, "throw the ACT test out the door and judge someone on their creativity and talent, not their ability to memorize mindless facts?"  I long for the day when this movie is no longer a fantasy, but a reality.

I'd give it 9 Juicy squirts out of a possible 10
