#630: Rushmore / FS Madness Champ / Charlie Siskel (American Anarchist)

Wes Anderson’s RUSHMORE was a minor indie hit during its initial run starting in late 1998, but it marked the arrival of a significant new directing talent, and established a brilliant new stage of Bill Murray’s career. Adam and Josh – who joins the show from Ebert Interruptus in Boulder, CO - give Anderson's film the Sacred Cow treatment and unveil your 2017 Filmspotting Madness champion. Also, Adam's interview with Charlie Siskel, co-director the Oscar-nominated "Finding Vivian Maier" and director of the new doc AMERICAN ANARCHIST. Siskel also shares his Top 5 Most Influential Docs.
