Ep 148: “Dead Poets Society”

May 18, 2021

We seize Robin Williams’ “Dead Poets Society” and discuss:

  • cinematography, spinning cameras;
  • story and writing, what’s in a name?;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;”
– John Keats
