Rushmore

Wes Anderson’s RUSHMORE was a minor indie hit during its initial run in early 1999, but it marked the arrival of a significant new talent in Anderson and established a brilliant new stage of Bill Murray’s career. RUSHMORE is the subject of this year’s Ebert Interruptus in Boulder, CO - a weeklong, frame by frame screening of a single movie. An event hosted by Filmspotting’s own Josh Larsen. This week on the show, Adam and Josh give Anderson's film the Sacred Cow treatment AND unveil your 2017 Filmspotting Madness Champion. Also, Adam's interview with Charlie Siskel, co-director the Oscar-nominated "Finding Vivian Maier" and director of the new doc AMERICAN ANARCHIST. Siskel also shares his Top 5 Most Influential Docs.

This episode of Filmspotting is presented by go90 / Squarespace.
