Beauty vs Beast: School's Out Forever

Jason fromMNPPhere with our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"-- tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of Wes Anderson's filmRushmore,and so you celebrate the battle between Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) and Herman Blume (Bill Murray) we shall.This was Anderson's second film (afterBottle Rocket) and an instant cult hit - it only made 17 million dollars in theaters (itranked 97that the box office,betweenThe Big Lebowskiand54) but I was in college at the time and believe you me,us youngins loved it right out of the gate.

Now it's rightly heralded as a classic - you're not going to hear an unkind word from me on the hermetically crafted direction that Wes started taking his film-making after this (Moonrise Kingdomis my favorite of all his films,after all) butRushmoredoes feel airy in a way that he's moved far far away from (especially with the to the millimeter specificity of his animated efforts) and it might be nice to see him sample some of this looseness again?

PREVIOUSLYI'm real glad that Judith O'Dea got to beat back the zombie horde this one time withlast week'sNight of the Living Deadanniversary edition- poor Barbra has had enough to deal with.SaidNick T:

"Without getting into details,I'd say this answer was a NO BRAINER!!!Hyuk hyuk hyuk"

This should've been Bill Murray's first invite to the Oscars.亚博主页That reaction shot when he discovers the tube feeding bees into his hotel room is a tiny rollercoaster,and my hands are all the way in the air as it drops down the track and his smile curdles and evaporates.Team Blume.

Team Blume only because Max is so annoying (even though they're both annoying,and Blume in some ways has less excuse to be so immature)!

Really,the beauty here is Olivia Williams,whom I found very appealing in this,if a little softer-edged than in her later roles.She's still one of my favorite slightly-below-the-radar actresses out there today.
