Mid90s


California, the mid-90s: CDs has not yet replaced the audio cassette, skate bojisti still didn't show up on MTV, and little Stevie still hold for baby and mom, and older brother. Everything changes when Stevie take the adult crowd of skaters renegades, and to prove his coolness, he makes one ridiculous madness for others. The boy did not notice how in a series of walks, hip-hop get-togethers and parties entertainment cease to be innocent, and his childhood inevitably is heading towards adolescence as the slope of the Beverly hills.

The film was released in "Mid-90s", writer and Director of which was Jonah hill. The once charming comedian of the teenage comedies in his directorial debut showed a Mature picture of growing an era whose the tenets are as relevant this is depending generation geography.

I might say that rose the street, however, all the delights of a domestic life is not passed by me. I wanted to look better and older than you are really. Remember that a burning desire to be friends with the cool kids, sneak a kiss out that beautiful girl, she love to all, her like nobody. The feeling when the sea according to knee there is nothing more important, about than the day before agreed with each other. All it to the pain is familiar to many of us. Thirteen year old Stevie, the protagonist of "Mid-90s" — fine collective image, which looks like mirror.

The boy lives in Los Angeles mom (Katherine Waterston), who's always on work elder brother, Ian (Lucas hedges). The relationship between the brothers strained and reminiscent of the cold war: open conflict no, but if the case is not miss a chance to stab each other, pobolney. For the most part the hero himself provided yourself in search of a friend acquainted with the older guys. Avid skaters suddenly take Stevie to pack accept with dignity — the first small victory — at this point I recall about their own. For drawing the characters of teenagers Jonah hill used a momentary attributes, avoiding the backgrounds and other details, in the course of the nicknames and habits. Such superficiality in this case seems to me to be appropriate the end, in his youth, any relationship between boys or germinate in a deep affection, or forever remain a little more durable than a nodding acquaintance. It really is closer to the second option, even though new people start in the Steve's life important stage.

All once happens for the first time: the kiss, first puff, hard fight. All this happens in the life of the protagonist and looking like actor Sunny Suljic home is on the screen, unwittingly projecting on themselves, remember their funny situations and highlights of the past. Now on they can talk to smile and fourteen years it was very serious. When waking up this nostalgia — this is a good indicator of the narrative.

I don't know how autobiographical the film for Jonah hill, but I would suggest that between the lines is true. Outside depends on how it many, the final gesture between Stevie and Ian made on me big impression and put a fat point in an imaginary dispute with myself about whether it's a lifetime movie.

"The mid 90s" this bold debut, in which hill was able to connect the global picture of the era and the quotient of the life of a teenager. In the speakers played music of the time, on the streets chasing skaters. A moment later, the film makes parts for brackets, leaving only the timeless for any generation: jigger, burning throat, cigarette, her own seem older, first kiss — his eyes darkened, and in my pants...however, you and they themselves probably remember.

The "mid-90s" as time about this beautiful portrait of a bygone era, in which each we had our own place.

Rare films that is hitting me in the soul, probably one of the hundreds and of the thousands of films really remains in memory for a long time and leaves a residue inside, and the film is exactly one of those are rare.

A simple story, about a child families problems feelings. Such films are many, but it has its own spark, something that it's hard to describe it just felt and all.

The film tells us about a young teenager on the name of Stephen, who most of all wants to find friends, my company. Once walking he saw a company of street skaters, as they have fun, joke, ride, laugh and its the head appeared a dream to be one of them to have such a company, with which you can spend time on end.

And here's chance to he noticed and took a and this was the start of his way to the ordinary street punks from the bottom of society. So in a couple of months of the quiet, weak-willed boy he as someone walk up from and typed in now the equal.

But even if he looks and began to think of others, inside remained the same. Only connection this company tried to interrupt, he actually felt this moment, how the last years of his life (and the whole life) was wrong. What all had this loneliness, isolation, that even his family, he could not find support and when he finally out of my comfort zone, started to move forward, it I want to return to the beginning. Of course he this is not happy. Such companies nor to spend unfortunately, he felt it on your experience. Not in vain he was named the company "sunburn" that is burn, all the lessons life, he gets the way says their own skin and, as said ray. Stevens, in the end of the movie that he got more than all of whom he knew.

A pretty interesting character older brother Steven — Jan. The film begins with with him then he in principle, does not disclose, only after a full viewing when re-viewing slips one thought. Its character for here to show, no matter what was Stephen, if neither was moving forward, nothing changed. Just live alone as he would become about the same — introverted, lonely and angry the whole world, for that and have not found their place and no one not accepted, he not even tried to build with someone relations, in contrast his younger brother.

Also note that this is a film in 2018, and he is cleared. There are no image widescreen or surround sound, picture in places with noise. The film is called the mid 90's and it really feel the atmosphere of the time. All here his place if electronics, it only that, what was then, the clothes, the music that plays in the film — all was the mid-90s. Here these small details and make the whole movie a holistic and the icing on the cake — the decision to shoot the film exactly on the old camera is only played the movie on hand.

In conclusion, the film is worth it to see.

+1 my favorite.

CA. The mid-90s. the Social network is still not replaced people, live chat, and iPods apply not yet have conquered the world, skateboard — still attribute renegades of disadvantaged areas, and the teenager Stevie does not can find common ground with his mother and older brother. Radical changes in this boy's life brings familiarity with a gang of skaters, idly killing time in the parks summer in the city. The guys at the surprise quickly take Stevie in your company gradually reveal him not the good side of teenage life.

That Jonah hill — a talented actor, everyone knows. It memorable game in "the Man who changed everything" and"the Wolf with wall street" was duly received two nominations for the Oscar. However, available in the colorful actor directorial ambitions knew few. With the release of his debut work, partly based on autobiographical material emerges a promising directorial career trajectory of ex-comedian.

Not to say that  the"Mid-90s" — a new word in the world cinema. For a trivial story dramedy, filmed in a retro manner, hides a quite ordinary story of a young man, included in the controversial stage of adolescence. Here you and constant pressure from the part of relatives wishing to impose to the child the correct values of life, and a youthful desire to stand out on the background of their peers, and the first timid attempts to find himself in adult life.

Using a limited, if not to say meager Arsenal of artistic means, hill makes a bold attempt to play on the sentimental feelings of a modern audience, suddenly went down in stage a wild nostalgia for the last two decades of the twentieth century. In that time, as Steven Spielberg in last year gusto was studied in "the First player to get ready to" influence people to pop culture and video games of the ' 80s, hill carefully explores the influence of the street on the fragile mind of teen 90.

There, the outside the apartment, in which Stevie with difficulty to get along with his small family, lies a myriad of possibilities and dangers. Hill deliberately openly demonstrates how this dualism "able-danger" combined with the symbol of the last decade of the twentieth century — maps.

On the one hand, says hill, skateboard — is a dangerous occupation, coupled with the need to perform dangerous stunts and time of time to get away from the police, otherwise you will be punished for skiing the wrong place. With the other blue — it is an opportunity to break out of the people, but you need a lot of train hard to get noticed and invited to serious competition. And factors that may not allow promising skater to climb up, quite a lot, and hill hesitate to divulge to the audience and their, stuffing their heroes are suspicious of pills and soldering them in the alcohol.

In the movie the line between a promising career and dim prospects highlighted so clear that even flashed the thought: "Mid-90s" not only not so much about little Stevie and his daily discoveries, but about the choice of difficult and sometimes very painful that we are forced to do it new friends.

Each type of the author captured the local skate community on the interesting. The fourth class (an obvious reference to not the most brilliant character) — quiet, introverted, at which, however, has the talent to the movies. Faxit (the nickname is derived from the two swear words of the English language) — handsome, for which wither all local starlet; the meaning of life, he sees carbon parties with booze and cigarette smoke. Main this company — ray. He does the most difficult tricks, it respects the local subculture and he has a dream — become a professional, learn to do on Board the most incredible thing. But this for likely need to part with his friends losers.

Someone will accuse hill in the surface material and the lack of directorial finesse. And probably some will be right. However, this is probably venial directed by debutant but managed with special care and care for bit to recreate the atmosphere of the epoch. Here the main character wears a t-shirt with a picture of characters from the video game "Street Fighter", carefully rewrites itself in pad video from collection of the elder brother the names of cult movies, stuck in the video games, idolized figure of basketball player Michael Jordan embroidered on sneakers. Parts, inevitably causing a nostalgia for the 90th, in the film is not counted. And if be able to recognize feel not trying to see in the film Director's claim to do conceptual morality tale, and just a vivid sketch, a fair sketch of his childhood memories, then we can say that it turned out very worthy.
