Bill Murray making a comeback in Rushmore is only one of many, many reasons to love this film. Olivia Williams aptly plays the understated love interest of Rushmore Academy's king of extracurricular, Jason Schwartzman, in this even more understated work of art. Genius. Peculiar. Hilarious. Intelligent. Such describes most all of the characters and the movie itself.
Not surprising as it just pours out of the director, Wes Anderson, in all of his movies from the beloved Bottle Rocket and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou to The Royal Tenenbaums and The Darjeeling Limited. Most are difficult titles to remember, but all are truly memorable films with a mastery of quirk... just watch the trailer.
FilmBender is Funny Movie Reviews. Owen Wilson co-wrote it with Wes. But only brother Luke Wilson sits in front of the lens on this one, and it happens to be Mr. Anderson's masterpiece -- all the way down to the handpicked British Invasion soundtrack. Crank it up, mellow out and giggle at the charm of every single endearing f-ing frame of this film.
