The Press Reviews

  • A gem that feels simultaneously informed by its author's adolescence and the product of a serious artist's observational distance. Full Review

  • Mid90s is a scrappy triumph, with heart, soul and a boundless sense of adolescent energy. Full Review

  • A slice of street life made up of skittery moments that achieve a bone-deep reality. Full Review

  • It longs to be received as an impeccable found artifact of its chosen decade, but also as a sly, knowing synthesis of its many obvious influences. Full Review

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

  • Hill is content to coast like Stevie toward a pink-hued horizon, hoping the pavement isn't too bumpy. The movie is nostalgia, pure and simple, unfettered by examination. Full Review

  • Snappy direction and a heady sense of nostalgia can’t hide a frustratingly flat coming-of-age tale that shows an actor struggling to find anything of interest to say. Full Review
