Rushmore is one of my favourite films. If you haven’t seen it before you really should. It was directed by Wes Anderson, who went on to do The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic. Like both those films, Rushmore is a comedy with dramatic elements to it. The humour is quite subtle, though I think this is much more the case in Anderson’s later films. The story is about a young student Max Fischer’s crush on his Teacher Rosemary Cross and friendship with Herman Blume. Jason Schwartzmam, Bill Murry, and Olivia Williams are all excellent in the film. I think Anderson is an amazing director. The visual style of the film is excellent. Owen Wilson and Anderson wrote a great script together. I can’t recommend this film enough. It may well be Anderson’s best film.

Reviews of Rushmore at Rotten Tomatoes



  1. I wrote a hit play!

  2. I watched the movie again with Ahilan a half hour after I just finished watching it. It was still really, really, good.

    I was going to title this post, “Oh My God. I wrote a hit play!”

  3. I would be unable to resist titling it O.R. they?
    best line of the movie, hands down.

  4. As much as I love that line Dinu..That whole sequence is amazing..especially when he screams “Oh my god!” as Ram has said….Wes Anderson is a mad man! Looking fwd to whatever he does next..

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
