Love. Expulsion. Revolution.
Max Fischer, a precocious and eccentric 15 year-old, who is both Rushmore's most extracurricular and least scholarly student; Herman Blume, a disillusioned industrialist who comes to admire Max; and Rosemary Cross, a widowed first grade teacher who becomes the object of both Max's and Herman's affection.
Dirk Calloway is really the only one here with a decent head on his shoulders.
Probably the movie I've seen more than any other, and it still reduces me to a soggy lump by the ending every single time. Wes Anderson's funniest, sharpest, most deeply-felt film, this indelible portrait of a true American dreamer resonates across all boundaries and transcends, even now, its retrospectively-familiar exquisitely composed visuals and snappy soundtrack. Whatever your opinion of later Anderson stuff (I'm wishy-washy on some of it myself), Rushmore's unique magic is irresistible.
I find that the older the Wes Anderson film, the easier it is to review...
This was a time where Anderson's warm and vibrant art style that almost made his film look like plays had yet to develop itself. The Royal Tenenbaums was the best mix of style and substance where Moonrise Kingdom was a little too much quirk and colors for its own good. I had an awful time trying to review both of those because it was hard to pinpoint exactly what I loved with Tenenbaums and what I hated with Moonrise without sounding too generalized or short. I just simply liked one and disliked the other. It was very hard to express why, but I still felt…
This is probably one of the few films I enjoy that I have a strong personal history with. A complicated history that makes me feel unreasonably attached to the film. Most movies I liked when I was younger I rewatch and don't like. I don't have a lot of respect for my taste as a youth, especially as a teenager. This is a film that I have liked, more or less, ever since I saw it. I loved it as a teenager when I first saw it (I think it was the first Criterion DVD I ever purchased), I liked it just fine in my early-to-mid twenties (even as my viewing of The Life Aquatic caused me to question Anderson…
"The secret, I don't know... I guess you've just gotta find something you love to do and then... do it for the rest of your life. For me, it's going to Rushmore."
The Royal Tenenbaums has always been my favorite Wes Anderson movie and I always thought it was because it was the first one of his that I had seen, but it can officially move over now because I have a new favorite: Rushmore. This film was so charming, the soundtrack so cool, and the characters so well developed that I was completely in love with it once the credits started rolling. Not only is it my favorite Wes Anderson film, but it also belongs on my all time…
Max Fischer is THAT kid from high school. The kid that is in every club photo on the wall. The kid that is in so many extracurriculars that it takes up three pages in the yearbook (which he is the editor in chief of as well). Max Fischer is just a high school kid with incredible drive and passion. That is his main flaw. He can put an incredible amount of work into a simple high school play, turning it into a broadway budget sellout, but he gets 30s on math tests. He can save Latin to impress a cute teacher in his school, but when she doesn't reciprocate he pretends that he got hit by a car during the…
Singlehandedly popularising the quirky comedy, Wes Anderson hasn’t ever over his now decade spanning career endeavoured to really step out of this protective genre shell, or you must count Fantastic Mr. Fox count as a breakaway because it’s an animation — I think we can all agree that it doesn’t. As lukewarm as my general opinion on quirk as a genre is, Rushmore undeniably passes the feeling it’s a pioneering work within cinema, or at least an epitome of it. The heavy art direction and way with the camera that have come to dictate Anderson’s trademark style are relatively subdued in this early effort within his steadily increasing oeuvre. The Budapest Hotel has topped everything that went before it in…
This movie is just laugh out loud hilarious.Its a laugh riot. I loved every single bit of this movie. The writing is so sharp,precise,funny & on point. Its one of the 10 best comedies ever made.
Rushmore is one of the very best of Anderson's fantastic lineup, making a star out of Jason Schwartzman and offering yet another showcase performance from Bill Murray.
“I saved Latin, what did you ever do?”
Bottle Rocket was a safe and promising debut for now indie-darling Wes Anderson, but already with Rushmore – his second full length-feature – he was basically almost in full bloom with his trademarked style both visually as well as tonally. Much like most of Anderson’s films, Rushmore is such a though out piece of art, the comedy feels methodically timed and it’s scattered over the film without ever being either too boring nor laugh-out-loud.
This amount of thought is probably put into the visual ideas as well, the framing of the film may not be as pitch-perfect as say The Grand Budapest Hotel, but still with such well-thought out placement and camera…
Hilarious for the most part...kind of gets a little too strange in a slightly repetitive/disjointed second act. Bill Murray is better than he's ever been. Wes Anderson pulls out all the stops in an impressive and satisfying finale. Saw on an original 35mm reel and it looked awesome.
