My favourite things: Rushmore

Rushmore is one of my favourite films.

Surreal, sharp, hilariously funny, tragic at times; it has everything I adore in a movie. Lots of the people I love don't like this film that much, which I normally find a big disappointment. But in this instance I don't mind because my brother finds it just as charming and clever as I do.

I like that we are united in our adoration of this film - it's like being a kid again and being in on a joke that no one else quite gets.

"Dear Max, I am sorry to say that I have secretly found out that Mr. Blume is having an affair with Miss Cross. My first suspicions came when I saw them Frenching in front of our house. And then I knew for sure when they went skinny dipping in Mr. Blume's swimming pool, giving each other handjobs while you were taking a nap on the front porch."

This is no great piece of writing, but it sums up the glory of this film in 3 awesome sentences.


  1. Indeed :-)

    It started a lifelong addiction for me of all movies Wes Anderson...

  2. Rosemary Cross: Has it ever crossed your mind that you're far too young for me?

    Max Fischer: It crossed my mind that you might consider that a possibility, yeah.
