Mid90s
Jonah Hill USA, 2018
An accomplished debut feature from actor turned writer-director Jonah Hill. It’s affecting, loose, sharply observed, emotional but not sentimental.

Hill seems to have been more concerned with finding the perfect vintage Ren & Stimpy shirt than developing the film into something more than a vehicle for said nostalgia signaling, but he’s not without promise as a director.

The film has a sketchbook quality, but Hill does something very difficult: he sustains the alternation of intense claustrophobia and release.

Hill comes somewhere in between Scorsese’s and Tarantino’s pop-smarts; so it is his lack of understanding — the smug, self-satisfied simplification of the songs that underscore Stevie’s life — that is offensive.

The strength of “Mid90s” lies in its small observations about a very tight sub-culture, and what that sub-culture provided its most devoted adherents.

Mid90s never quite manages to make an impact, in part because it gives us so little to hang onto with the characters onscreen.

The drama is heartfelt but thin; despite some sharp and swift dialogue, the characters are bound to a defining trait or two, and there’s little sense of style to lift the action past obvious intentions.

The overall effect is a film where the personal and the packaged are difficult to parse out, because Hill seeks (and often achieves) the unvarnished feel of rootless street kids, but comes at the material from the conspicuous vantage of a popular Hollywood actor.

Maybe Hill doesn’t want to moralize, or for his movie to become an editorial on white-guy rage—understandably, perhaps. Or maybe these standout morsels are just rote idiosyncrasy, the kinds of colorful quirk—albeit dark—that gets an indie movie sold these days.

Like its hero, “Mid90s” struggles to figure out what it wants to be, and the struggle makes it interesting as well as occasionally frustrating.

Hill could have trusted his hurricane kid to carry the film with a charming and ballsy performance all on its own, but thanks to the sharp, electric attention the director gives every aesthetic inch of this uplifting time capsule, he launches it into the stratosphere.
