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.
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.
Dirk Calloway is really the only one here with a decent head on his shoulders.
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…
"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 a nasty little shit. Good thing he's a funny little shit, too.
A few thoughts: For some reason I didn't have this marked as watched - maybe because I was actually smart enough to realize I hadn't offered it my full attention the first time around. Huge mistake (the not-paying-attention part). Murray, as funny as he and his character are, feels a bit wobbly here, as if he's still attuning himself with Anderson's sense of humor (or the other way around). Though leaps and bounds more 'Andersonian' than Bottle Rocket in terms of aesthetic, it feels like the filming schedule for outdoor shoots was determined only to occur on the most overcast, dreary days possible. Very grey.…
Take a bunch of delightfully eccentric characters speaking and behaving in outrageous but mostly endearing ways, then present them to the audience as perfectly real and natural. To me, that's a typical Wes Anderson film. Somehow he has the ability to make you feel as if these are the same sorts of people that you see every day, that you live with and care about, while at the very same time making you feel as if you've just visited some sort of alternate universe.
Rushmore is one of Anderson's first films and as much as I've come to admire his work, somehow I kept missing this one. Maybe seeing the later ones first got me used to his style, or…
Ver una de las primeras películas de Wes Anderson y compararlas con las más nuevas solo te lleva a decir una cosa: "Wes Anderson nunca cambia y por favor, no cambies nunca".
Recomiendo juntar Rushmore con The Grand Budapest Hotel y analizar las muchas similitudes entre el personaje de Max y el de Gustave.
One of my top favorite films ever.
Not my favorite Wes Anderson film, but I've never disliked anything I've seen from him. By the end, I was teary eyed and felt my time was well spent. It'll be awhile before I watch it again, though.
I saved Latin - what did you ever do?

That feeling when you lie and mess with the boys that are bigger than you
That moment when you choose to lie , kick and run
That completely sucking moment when you get rejected by your loved ones
The fear of not knowing where you're going and enjoying it at the same time , doing whatever you like to do , doing what you're good at
That awesome sense of adventure that breathes in you when you're a calm but hot-headed teenager full of interesting ideas ...
And oddly wakes up in you when you're a depressed of school and father of two sons you can not feel more far from them .
“ Rushmore “ is a story about…
what a damn surprise.
first things fuckin' last: i remember watching this movie a year ago and being furious after the viewing because i hated it. Why? because i loved every other Wes' work. Not this one.
I couldn't get it out of my head, i was mad myself, maybe i was missing out something. I did. I missed out on the perfect blend of typical Wes Anderson comedy and drama. That's it.
The montage, the quick cuts, the music and the characters, all hit the right notes. However, i can't say i was in the shit.
Wes Anderson is a film maker that has a vision, right down to the smallest details, everything is how he wants it and the brand sells itself.
Rushmore is the epitome of everything I have just written, but on top of this, Rushmore is a really great, enjoyable movie with a really killer soundtrack.
Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), student at the prestigious Rushmore Academy isn't exactly the most scholarly student they have, he's extracurricular activities seem to fill the majority of his time.
Enter Rosemary Cross (Olivia Williams) a recently widowed teacher who arrives at the academy teaching the younger children. Max falls for her immediately and begins to try and charm her, resulting in an obsession.
