Rewind. So this is about a thirteen-year-old boy named Stevie (Sunny Suljic). He doesn't have a ton going on in his personal life, so one summer he assimilates himself into a group of skater kids. Now I don't think that I even saw a trailer for this, but the reason why this got my attention was the same reason it got everybody else's: this is Jonah Hill's directorial debut. He has said that this is not autobiographical, but it is still the type of story that feels extremely personal. I think he does have some growing to do in the director's chair, but as a first time effort, I think he shows a lot of promise and he has put together a very human and earnest film. Now this is very much a slice of life movie, which isn't a movie type that I typically go for. It just gives you a look into how life operates for this boy, there are not any major conflicts, and when it wraps up, nothing is really resolved. I think why I did end up liking this movie was because I could relate to this because I grew up through this while in the same age bracket. I did not connect to the skating, mind you, as I never, ever, ever had the balance to pull that off, but I did experience this camaraderie shared by friends, listening to rap music and calling things "gay". It is not something I partake in anymore because I have grown with the times, but if they wanted to stay true to the time period, it would be out of place for them not to do that. At barely 80 minutes long after you subtract end credits, Mid90s does not overstay its welcome. I was concerned when this started in that it would be too in-your-face with 90-isms. That is here to be sure, but it does pull back once you get the past the opening 15 minutes or so. As a directorial debut, this is a mostly solid effort, and I appreciated the 4:3 aspect ratio and the guerrilla style of filmmaking. I would love to see more movies directed by Jonah Hill, and I am sure we will in the future. If you were interested in this, I think you should check it out when you have the opportunity.
