Rushmore ★★★★

I cannot believe I spent years acting as if I was somehow "too cool" for Wes Anderson when suddenly I cannot get enough of his early films. Though I don't think Rushmore is as good as The Royal Tenenbaums (I don't think anything will beat that movie for me), it definitely comes at a close second. And just like the Royal Tenenbaums, the writing, soundtrack, performances, and set design in Rushmore is very very good. Loved this.
