Rushmore ★★★★

"Maybe I'm spending too much of my time starting up clubs and putting on plays. I should probably be trying harder to score chicks. That's the only thing anybody really cares about. But, it's not my forte, unfortunately."

Wes Anderson just made a step up on his game with his second feature, Rushmore, an exceptional comedy with whimsical characters and a coming-of-age story that resonated well with me. There's so much about this film that's hard to dismiss. The underlying themes about the troubles of adolescence and dealing with loss, though portrayed in the most unconventional ways, were the things that really worked for me.
