Like all Wes Anderson movies, “Rushmore” is made special in part by its carefully curated soundtrack. Mark Mothersbaugh, the Kinks, Donovan, the Creation and other artists provide the musical accompaniment to Max Fischer’s coming of age and remind us of Anderson’s artful meticulousness. Courtesy of Kentucker Audley, we now have a new version of the “Rushmore” soundtrack to ponder — and it’s hilarious in its awfulness.

The 100 Greatest Comedies of All-Time, According to BBC’s Critics Poll

After polling critics from around the world for the greatest American films of all-time, BBC has now forged ahead in the attempt to get a consensus on the best comedies of all-time. After polling 253 film critics, including 118 women and 135 men, from 52 countries and six continents a simple, the list of the 100 greatest is now here.

Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.

Ray Donovan: a show that's well, well worth watching

Robb Sheppard Sep 5, 2017

The fix is in. Here's why Hollywood crime drama Ray Donovan deserves a place among the hallowed TV greats...

Breaking Bad. The Sopranos. The Wire.

See related Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

Three of the most popular and critically acclaimed serialised dramas. The Mount Rushmore of TV. Look up any list and you’ll see them there, digging their elbows in and jostling for position inside the top ten.

But if we’re going with the Mount Rushmore metaphor, there’s a blank space on the mountain and an argument for Ray Donovan to have his face carved into the rock, nestled between McNulty, Tony and Heisenberg.

Donovan’s the answer to Hollywood’s biggest problems: Heavyweight boxing champ has a dead girl in his bath tub? Call Ray. Pop megastar bribed with a sex tape leak?

‘Class’ Races to Save the Planet In Its First Season Finale — What to Watch This Weekend, June 2-4
Welcome to PeekTV, your daily look at the best that television has to offer. In each installment, we make three picks for the best shows to watch and…toss in a little extra.

The Weekend of June 2-4

“Class” (Saturday – BBC America, 7:00 p.m.) – The heroes face an impossible choice as they apply what they have learned so far to save the Earth. While Quill prepares to exact revenge on her captors, the friends are forced to fight Corakinus before he takes what he desires from April and Charlie in the Season 1 finale.

Back when the show first hit American airwaves, our Hanh Nguyen described that the show took a little while to find its footing. But as this “Doctor Who” youngster universe expands, it’s worth checking to see how far it’s come in its initial eight-episode run.

“The Leftovers” (Sunday – HBO, 11:30 p.m.) – Answers are elusive in the series finale.

Here's the Otherworldly Beauty Who Plays Wonder Woman's Mom

  • BuzzSugar
While Gal Gadot is undeniably the star of Wonder Woman (it's right there in the title), another Amazonian goddess may catch your eye in the new superhero film. Hippolyta is queen of the Amazons, and she's very protective over her daughter, Princess Diana. Her steely stare could turn an ocean into a series of icebergs, and she's played by a women who you've very likely seen elsewhere. Actress Connie Nielsen hails from Denmark. She got her start in the late '80s, making the transition from Danish TV to American films in the '90s. She scored a smaller part in 1997's The Devil's Advocate, but she probably first caught your attention as Mrs. Calloway in Rushmore, Lucilla in Gladiator (pictured below), or Nina in One Hour Photo. However, if you're like me, you know her best as Dani Beck, the detective who momentarily replaces Olivia Benson as Elliot Stabler's partner on Law & Order: Svu.

Proof That Rushmore’s Herman Blume is One of the Best Characters Ever

I’ve gone on record in saying that one of if not my favorite Bill Murray characters in the history of film is Herman Blume in the movie Rushmore. It’s almost hard to describe the guy but I’ll do the best I can. He’s a lonely, miserable millionaire who can’t stand his sons, hates his wife, and feels he has zero purpose in life whatsoever. But he’s likable. Not only that he’s extremely bright but its as if he just doesn’t care, probably because he doesn’t. The lines that Blume spits out in this movie are legendary but if you want

The Many Roles of Rushmore’s Max Fischer

Since today is Wes Anderson’s birthday, many people have been paying various homages to him online. Of all the wonderful films he’s made, I still rank Rushmore as my number one. Many might argue that The Royan Tenenbaum’s is the superior picture but to me, no character will ever trump Bill Murray as Herman Blume. And when you talk about coming out of nowhere, Jason Schwartzman absolutely killed it as Max Fischer. Not only did the film explore adolescence in a hilarious way, it also explored friendships, love, work, pressure, you name it so that all of us could look

Wes Anderson’s ‘Isle of Dogs’ Poster Has Lots of Akira Kurosawa (and Dogs)

…Let’s hope the dogs don’t die.

On Tuesday, the first poster for Wes Anderson’s newest feature film since 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel was released. Whilst not much is known about the story of Isle of Dogs, its poster reveals small details about what to expect, and, more importantly, the influence of Akira Kurosawa on the stop-motion animation.

Set in Japan, the poster’s large, red font places the Japanese title at the center, with its English translation held within the script. Wes Anderson’s posters usually have either one clear defining image at the forefront or a depiction of the ensemble cast, so Isle of Dogs is a slight departure from what Anderson’s audience are used to.

The poster for The Royal Tenenbaums places family at the center while Anderson’s classic Futura font title stayed beneath the family as something that was not meant to draw attention. Moonrise Kingdom

Wes Anderson’s Manly Men

In search of male desire in a twee world.

Here’s a thesis: with the singular exception of his animated adventure story, Fantastic Mr. Fox, the movies of Wes Anderson are fundamentally about nice, fiery desire. But while a number of his movies explore this through the conventional terrain of the heterosexual relationship and its discontents — The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom come to mind — others explore more curious expressions of desire, leaving Anderson’s plain and plaintive ladies behind. Shared aesthetic characteristics, from the constantly reprised Cornell boxes to the carefully referenced dead Eastern European novelists, are subject of much ruthless discussion among Anderson acolytes. And, considering Anderson’s diligent cooperation with turning a collection of essays and interviews into a $35 coffee table book, that seems to be the dissection that Anderson embraces. But what are those other, male-centric movies actually about? Most critics, when forced to give something like a serious and meaningful answer, will

Watch: Wes Anderson Talks Akira Kurosawa, Symmetry, Acting & More in One-Hour Masterclass

Wes Anderson is deep into production on his next feature, the new stop-motion Isle of Dogs, and while this extended animation process means we won’t see the results for at least another year-plus, it has also freed him up to other opportunities. Following a Christmas advert, he’s now participated in an extensive, one-hour masterclass while at Arte Cinema. With it being conducted by a pair of French speakers, the translation process means it might not be as smooth as other conversations he has taken part in, but it is certainly one of the most informative about his influences and his process.

“The reason to hide your inspirations is because you are trying to steal them. If you can sneak it in, then you’ve gained something without having to lose something,” he says, mentioning his time at University of Texas when he would go back and forth consuming

That said, the influence of ‘60s European cinema on his work are undeniable. And he’s not shy about that either. In a new talk captured by ArteTV, he took a break from “Isle of Dogs,” his latest, to discuss those influences, as well as “Rushmore,” his love of Christmas specials, his relationship with Owen Wilson, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and more.

Framing Wes Anderson’s Memories

The frames-within-frames Wes Anderson uses in his work show his filmography’s obsession with memory.The Grand Budapest Hotel (Anderson, 2014).

The artist Joseph Cornell took glass-fronted boxes and placed things such as birds, springs, ice cubes, and balls inside them, turning these everyday and otherwise benign objects into microcosms for something bigger than any of us can ever be. These boxes were referred to as “shadow boxes”, “memory boxes” and “poetic theaters,” and with each box the viewer is given an invitation to enter a new world. This world is not unknown to the individual viewer, but instead a collective and shared world in which memories exist. As the artist’s website states: “using things we can see, Cornell made boxes about things we cannot see: ideas, memories, fantasies, and dreams.” The boxes, both tragic and beautiful, present an artist trying as hard as they can to turn something intangible, something
