Episode 56- Rushmore

It’s back-to-school week on the pop-culture nostalgia podcast, as we delve into Wes Anderson’s 1998 film Rushmore, starring Jason Schwartzman, Olivia Williams, and Bill Murray. It seemed like a contemporary classic at the time, but has it dated at all in the past 14 years? We also chat a bit about our experiences at the Toronto International Film Festival, including Blain’s impression of Rian Johnson’s Looper and J.M.’s experience at Jason Reitman’s reading of the American Beauty script with Bryan Cranston and Christina Hendricks.

    Love this film! Can’t wait to listen. I hope you mention the references to Heat (“Ready Demolition” and “on the edge where I gotta be”).
