In an early montage, Dorsey can be clearly seen trying to audition for numerous plays where he is either too young or too old, or too short, simply not the right guy for the part (Ebert 780). In other cases people find it very impossible to work with him.

Peter Weir the director of Dead Poets Society has used this element to maximum perfection in this film; he was able to adorn each astonishing scene with an impeccable tune. When Neil Perry is up late at night, just after his dad harshly instructs him to take part in military school and medical school, we don’t know what is going to take effect.

I end up forgetting I have homework and not coming back to it later that night or the next morning to finish it.
