Rushmore (Movies)

"I'm sorry. Did someone say my name?"

Logan uses protagonist Max Fischer's first line from the 1998 Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson penned film. Max is a highly intelligent yet poorly performing student, whose extra-curricular activities and romantic ambitions are chronicled in the tale of one who insists on living outside the box and who, in trying to achieve all, achieves nothing. Max's opening scene sees him nonchalantly reading the Wall Street Journal and drinking a cup of coffee during math class before being persuaded by his admiring classmates and teacher to solve an unsolved math problem. It's a dream, of course, for Max has neither the adoration of his peers and mentors nor the interest in applying himself to those matters which might help him succeed in the real world. Logan's opening scene sees him nonchalantly reading a surfing magazine during English class before being announced as the winner of the essay competition. But whilst Veronica might like to think so, it's not a dream and most of Logan's peers are quick to adore.
