5.0 out of 5 stars When Wes Anderson ruled the world, 27 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Criterion Collection: Rushmore [Blu-ray] [1998] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
My favourite film. Maybe. My favourite Wes Anderson film. Definitely. Before his obsession with whimsy eat up everything in his creative wake, Anderson's film about one teenager's crush (brilliantly played by Jason Schwartzman - he too has never been better) on his high school teacher (Olivia Williams) is a joy to behold, and that's even before taking into account the hangdog perfection of Bill Murray's millionaire love rival. A superbly chosen soundtrack accompanies set piece after set piece, which together with excellent dead pan dialogue makes this film a delight. Whimsical? Yes, but whimsical with a heart and thank god not whimsical for whimsical's sake (see the rest of Anderson's oeuvre in ascending date order).

4.0 out of 5 stars “Rushmore” on BLU RAY – Compatibility Issues For UK and EUROPEAN Buyers…, 28 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Criterion Collection: Rushmore [Blu-ray] [1998] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
It’s bizarre after all these years to think that Wes Anderson’s anarchic “Rushmore” is only available on BLU RAY in the States – and on a much-praised release too (no UK or European issue). But therein lies a problem for UK and European buyers…

The US issue is REGION-A LOCKED - so it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK Blu Ray players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't). Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.

Until such time as someone on this side of the pond decides to give “Rushmore” a long-overdue REGION B and C release – check your BLU RAY player has the capacity to play REGION A – before you buy the pricey Criterion issue…
