We're talking about the second greatest film of all time here.

In simple terms. Max Fischer (played by Jason Schwartzman) is one of my favorite characters, from any film, ever. Accompanied on screen by Bill Murray (Herman Blume) and directed by Wes Anderson, Max is the epitome of quirky cool.

More than anything, this Wes Anderson, Owen Wilson scribed comedy is about the dysfunctional relationship between the oddly ambitious and overly involved high school student, Max and the dryly depressed businessman, Herman. In a fun way, the film shines a light on the vulnerability of people as a whole. In an intellectual way, this '98 release exemplifies smart, quirky comedy.

I don't want to give up too much. So, just go watch the damn film, but know that you'll inevitably end up excessively quoting tit.

"Like your nurses' uniform, guy." "These are O.R. scrubs." "O. R. they?" I have a hard time determining which I like more. The You Are Forgiven sequence in Rushmore vs. the opening to Royal Tenenbaums -- pretty hard to decide. So if Rushmore is only #2 ... what made it into the #1 spot?

**** out of ****    For the longest time after seeing it for the first time, I loved Wes Anderson's "Rushmore" without knowing what made it so special to me, when compared to say, the rest of his films that followed (and the one that preceded it, "Bottle Rocket"). I absolutely adored the film for its whacky sense of humor, quirky and flawed characters, and elaborate visual style; and it snuck its way, somehow, into my Top Ten list (if there ever was one). Until now, I haven't …
