Just watcched Rushmore again for the first time in at least a decade. Still holds up. Great music and pretty much everything Max and Herman do is hilarious.The secret, I don't know... I guess you've just gotta find something you love to do and then... do it for the rest of your life. For me, it's going to Rushmore.
There are 3 specific movies that I believe I am going to take heat for bringing down the ranking in the top 15. As I said, keep two things in mind - this is why I thought the collaborative list would be the best way to go, and a few years ago none of the 3 would have made my rankings, or if they did it would be way closer to 100. This is the first, but I think the one with the least anger attached. Yes, for the most part I hate Wes Anderson movies, but this is the exception. This was my #34, and 80s' #17.
So I guess we both have dead people in our families.
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.
Rushmore is awesome! Tough to choose between that and Bottle Rocket. Royal Tenenbaums is clearly number three imo.
