Soundtrack Pick : Rushmore (1998)

Posted on the 14 October 2014 by Ikzidna @InspiredGround


Sometimes you got so overwhelmed with the amount of movies you should watch, with such minimum time to watch anything. Somehow I picked Rushmore (1998). I thought maybe a movie by Wes Anderson could give a little fresh feeling. I was surprised how Anderson can make a film a little less about beauty and the chaotic days of being a teenager. I got the feeling that the story was based on his own experience, and it is half true, the fact that he wrote the story with Owen Wilson (and his own experience too). I find it a little bit strange how in the story, a guy can be such an overachiever while failing his grades at the same time. But I still find Rushmore entertaining to watch. It was the days when Anderson was less acknowledged and before he used grander music like he did today collaborating with Alexander Desplat.

The oldies music somehow works in my ears. I hope you find it pleasant too :
