Sic transit gloria. Glory fades. I'm Max Fischer.

"My top schools where I want to apply to are Oxford and the Sorbonne. My safety's Harvard."

The second in a series of Wes Anderson movies, Rushmore, will be shown tonight at Asylum. Bottle Rocket was great, but Rushmore is the movie that put Anderson the map. My map anyway. In 1998 I identified with Max Fisher so much it was scary. Now, I think he's sort of a jerk. And really, who could resist falling for Olivia Williams. No one, that's who. She really is irresistible.

What's your favorite quote from the movie? And no, you can't use "O.R. they?," although that is pretty much the best line in the flick. 8:00pm sharp at 2471 18th Street NW.
