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…
"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…
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…
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.…
I saw this film the night it opened in Phoenix with a packed crowd. They were laughing uproariously from the get-go, and I've scarcely ever had a better cinema experience. "Heaven and Hell" at the end is an amazing fantasy sequence for any high school drama nerd like myself.
Rushmore is a tale revolving the pompous and elitist character Fischer.
It's a complex and interesting character portrayel as well as an interesting and entertaining story. The film displayed a wide width of emotion with its many themes well executed with the convivial, well-paced narrative and great, effective cinematography complementing the story perfectly. The score is great as well.
Rührend-melancholische Komödie über Freundschaft und Rivalität, Verluste und unerfüllte Liebe, Väter und Söhne. Knüpft ein wenig an "Moonrise Kingdom" an, wenn man so will. Sehr schön gewählter Soundtrack (sieht man von Cat Stevens ab), charmant exzentrische Charaktere (und angenehmer als die "Tenenbaums"), eine Klassenarbeit mit 37 Prozent, Fahrräder, Aquarien, Cousteau und weitere bekannte Dinge aus dem Anderson-Universum. Drehbuch zusammen mit Owen Wilson, dem ewig unterschätzten.
I love him so much and Jason is great.
Dirk vs. Max on Rushmore's lawn was my favorite scene by far.
Man... I can't believe it... I was disappointed with a Wes Anderson film...
Before this, I had seen half of Anderson's movies (Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, Moonrise, and Grand Budapest), and I loved all of them. I'd say that Royal Tenenbaums and Life Aquatic (and possibly Grand Budapest) are some of my favorite movies ever. Wes Anderson had become one of my favorite directors. The characters he created were such excellent characters that I deeply cared for.
So, I went into Rushmore with very high expectations. I've been wanting to see it for a long time now. It is Wes Anderson's second most critically acclaimed movie behind Grand Budapest (going off metacritic and imdb user ratings); I really wish I could…
