Critic Reviews for Only The Young
An elegant capture of the most elusive story of all: the awkward but nevertheless intense friendship between boys.
If you think one summer in the lives of three skate punks in a sunny Southern California Podunk wouldn't make a fresh, engaging documentary, "Only the Young" is here to prove you wrong.
The helmers find consistently invigorating camera angles and a smooth editing scheme, despite what was surely a raft of footage.
A charming, aimless film about the aimless. It plays like a nuanced MTV reality show (an oxymoron, perhaps, but you get the idea).
Co-directors Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims show genuine affection for their subjects but, despite some evocative visuals, never zero in on an involving structure or narrative.
Audience Reviews for Only The Young
Having grown up in Southern California myself many years ago I enjoyed this piece. Interesting that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Great representation of the American teen with a interesting story of entanglement that is portrayed with beautiful cinematography.
