For Wes Anderson's first breakout feature, subduing the quirky sense of humor that would be a hallmark in his filmography works to "Rushmore's" advantage because the plot is scaled to a level of intimacy where you sympathize with the main character roster. Max may be an overly ambitious smart-aleck and can often be petty, but it's his insecurities and fantasies at his age that adds a layer of relatability.
sinematografisi şahane. ölümlerin geride kalanlarda bıraktığını boşlukları kompulsif ilişkilerle doldurmaya çalışanları konu alan film. fakat herman için durum başka, o oğullarının neden olduğu hayal kırıklığını max ile takılarak bastırmaya çalışıyordu. film ayrıca aile kavramını hem yüceltiyor hem de yeriyor. her şeyin tatlıya bağlandığı -ya da öyle gösterildiği- son dışında göze batan bir klişe yok
It may not have the most eclectic colour palette of some of his other films, but Rushmore marks the first time you can see Anderson's signature style, as well Schwartzmann's debut performance being a ranged expression of the actor's talent. This film is lightening in a bottle and maybe even Anderson's best.
Being a fan of Anderson's aesthetics, I may be biased, but I loved this film so much. There is otherworldliness to its everyday school life. Max is an unforgettable character, and I feel that most of us know someone like him in our lives. Lessons to be learned? Extreme self-confidence can drag you down but it can also get you far ahead.
Wes Anderson, albeit in less refined form than his later efforts. Music is way too hipster-trash for my taste, and it isn't done subtly. MC alternates between endearing, creepy, clever, & annoying. Bill Murray runs the show, what a treat. Cinematography is fun, if a tad muted, while showing some early ex of WA's style. Enjoyable sophomore attempt, gets into irritating MC territory too often
