008 Rushmore by Wes Anderson

We enter the "slightly heightened reality" of Wes Anderson in his breakthrough 1998 film Rushmore. Beyond its illusionary comedic mantle lies a darker film that explores the limitations of youthful hubris and the facade of success. Jason Schwartzman, at the age of 17, offers an outstanding performance as the punkish Max Fischer, while Bill Murray plays his foil as only Bill Murray truly can. Enjoy!
