#065: Rushmore

criterion65WES ANDERSON

1998

I loved school, and like most kids spent more time on extra-curricular activities than I ever did on my actual studies, but I certainly never knew the kind of contradictions in achievement that Max Fischer accomplishes in Wes Anderson’s second film and first masterpiece.  Rushmore is one of those movies that catch you by surprise, marketed as studio trash but surprisingly turning out to be an eternal art house classic.  For this episode, I had the pleasure of talking to Shaun Sayer, a long-time fan of the film who shared his thoughts with me.
