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…
Watched for the first time with the 13-year-old. Strikes me that an underrated quality of Anderson's work is the casual diversity of the supporting casts. Also, it won't be easy, but I will be voting for Wes over the Coens in Filmspotting Madness.
The best coming of age movie I've ever seen
I need to stop trying to watch Wes Anderson movies, they're really just not for me.
Another wonderfully delightful feature from Wes Anderson, is there anything he can't do?!
margaret yang?? you mean the margaret yang?? queen of wes anderson, flyer of planes, actor of poor girls, giver of plants, server of looks, dancer of murray, destroyer of schwartzman?
yeah she did that
Decent comedy. Interesting main character, otherwise, pretty... non memorable.
Bill Murray wants an Oscar so bad, doesn't he? Nothing made Bill Murray's turn toward more Academy Award-worthy roles so clear as his role in the 1998 film, Rushmore. Written and directed by Wes Anderson, Rushmore also stars Jason Schwartzman and Olivia Williams. Rushmore is the coming-of-age tale of a college prep student who does not excel in academics who decides to be involved in every extracurricular activity the school offers. His whole life revolves around his school until he learns he is on academic probation. I understand that many people love Wes Anderson, and consider this film to be his darling, I didn't care for it, nor did I find it meaningful in its desperate half effort to be…
Ojalá Wes Anderson nunca se muera, lo amo.
I have a bad tendency of writing Wes Anderson movies off as "stuff white people like" until I actually watch them. I don't know if I'll fully fall in love with Anderson's twee sensibility, but his use of colour and framing is impressive (especially using parting curtains to mark the passage of time) and makes his blue-blazered prep school world pop off the screen. Jason Schwartzman is great as Max Fischer, a Holden Caulfield figure that I kind of wanted to hate, but my favourite performance is from Olivia Williams as Rosemary Cross, a widowed teacher and Max's object of obsession. Even as I tell myself that I'm not into indie quirk, Wes Anderson still finds a way to charm me.
