Dude Poets Society? (See what I did there?)
« on: September 15, 2017, 02:30:30 AM »
Hello Dudes of all ages. It's been a goddamn eternity since I posted anything at all. Not that my participation in this here experiment lasted long in the first place...anyways...the Dude digresses. I'm ashamed to inform you all that I hadn't seen The Dead Poets Society until a few minutes ago. It's quite the film. Not to go on a tangent again but I continue to love Robin Williams in serious roles. He was throwing some rocks back then.

Okay. Back to my point. I need your opinions here. Were the actions of our heroes Dudely ones? I feel like the Dude would be considered a free thinker, but seemed to do it quietly. He wasn't concerned with conforming to society's view of success or happiness or whatever. He just lived his life like he wanted. That was the major theme of the movie, yes?

I haven't seen it in a long time.
The wife and daughter loved it big time.
Which of course spoils the shit out of it for me.
I never want to go there with them. I mean open the can of worms.
But suffice it to say that I refuse to accept Harry Potter as "great literature".
My feelings are similar with the movie.
I remember leaving semi pissed.
And more than a little disgusted.
Half at myself for giving a shit.
It glorifies a type of literary appreciation that makes me want to lose my fucking lunch.
And makes me murmur disgustedly "what's the fucking point"?

Oh and as a disclaimer I likewise completed an education in Literature as my first degree.

I'd point to this.

I enjoy Dead Poet's Society as a movie and Robin Williams's acting in it.

However, that kind of appreciation that they show just comes across as literary masturbation, to me.

I still jerk off manually.

But that's just, like, my opinion.
If at first you don't succeed ... Um ... Yeah. Whatever and stuff.

I have far too much Walter to get past it.
Some things I either avoid or I will draw lines in the sand.

Well that's interesting. Might have to rethink my position. I could just be a sucker for Robin Williams

I loved the movie when I was in my teens and early twenties. There are many great ideas in it and it did make me fall in love with Thoreau at the time. But now that I'm 40 I'm not so sure the movie holds up. It's a movie for young people that will make them think about non-conformity and that's cool, that's cool. I've never seen it as a literary movie though. It's about being young and living in the moment or carpe diem - seize the day.

I think the Dude would dig carpe diem and he loves to read (judging by the books in his apartment) but running around in a circle in a cave and making advances towards women he would probably find exhausting.
