USA 1998, 93 minutes
Dir. Wes Anderson
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy / Youth


Aroview: Bamboozling minds everywhere is this oblique comedy from Wes Anderson (BOTTLE ROCKET), re-envisioning that Hollywood mainstay, Highschool USA, as a cross between Ferris Bueller and PeeWee Herman.

Events are centred around student Max Fischer, a precocious yet emotionally arrested smart aleck, who's caught in an absurd love-triangle with a teacher and rich school-trustee (Bill Murray in his best role in years). His antics including forming a Beekeeper's Club and doing school-play versions of RAMBO, Fischer is a truly original creation that will leave you scratching your head in bemusement (and amusement) long afterwards.
