Focus On The Geek: Wes Anderson’s “Rushmore”

Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) is a poor student but a very bright, nigh adult go-getter at Rushmore Academy, the geeky hero of Rushmore (1998), the second of Wes Anderson’s filmic oddities.  The movie follows the boyish love for an honorable school as it gives way to the boyish love for an appealing female . . . but one for whom Max must bitterly, zanily compete.

The film exists for its plot and its characters, who remain unexplored.  Characteristically Anderson provided no theme, so what we have here is a unique, even delightful if superficial little comedy.
