Critic Reviews for Mid90s

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (12)

explores the violent initiations of boys into manhood against the backdrop of a laid-back LA skate shop crew... quickly, this coming-of-age film becomes body horror.

October 17, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It's a movie about making choices in tough circumstances, and for the most part Hill makes pretty good ones.

Hill may well turn out to have a growing talent for directing. But he needs to match his subtler insights to a script that feels less derivative.

October 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Jonah Hill's directorial debut, from a script he wrote himself, rewinds back to Clinton-era L.A., where a young kid gets an education in sex, drugs and skaterat culture. The result feels rough-hewn, hands-on and totally irresistible.

October 16, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Mid90s is more than an exercise in refracting the nostalgic radiance of its cultural touchstones. It's something both rougher and more tender, and still a little bit unformed.

October 15, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

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.
