Critic Reviews for Mid90s
Hill is too smart to mistake nostalgia and signifiers for storytelling. Instead, he makes Mid90s resonate with universal poignancy and electric energy; his kids are the best, messiest kind of real, and they're alright.
The cast is mostly skaters, not actors, but they're persuasive as pals, and Hill is clearly having fun.
The best thing I can say about Mid90s is that Hill gets what it means to want to be cool. It's ironic that this is his debut's greatest liability.
Hill comes straight out of the gate here with a minor masterpiece.
The first feature from writer-director Jonah Hill shows some of the best qualities of veteran actors who step behind the camera, with nuanced performances so real the characters practically fall off the screen.
