Criterion's stellar reputation for Blu-ray releases continues unabated by their phenomenal treatment of Wes Anderson's first masterpiece, a sublime comedy about death, ghosts, ambition, and hubris.

[Rushmore] is a wholly original conception that is constructed of familiar parts of other films... that are somehow reassembled into something that feels new.

...a curious little movie that hovers too close and too often around terminal sweetness and repellent meanness.

...simplicity works in the film's favor, allowing writer-director Wes Anderson and co-writer Owen Wilson's fascinating characters to stand out.

Rushmore is a rare comedy that manages to be both hysterically funny and poignant, sometimes at the exact same instant.
| Original Score: 4/4
