On the 35th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Kris Krainock and I discuss a24’s mid90s, the directorial debut from Jonah Hill. mid90s is a slice of life… 1990’s skateboarder life to be precise. With virtually no known actors except Lucas Hedges, it shows the life of a young kid as he tries to make friends with a bunch of skaters. The authenticity on screen is somewhat of a nostalgia overload, but Jonah Hill does an amazing job of balancing it into a touching, funny film. Puzzle pieces include Kids, Clerks, Barry Lyndon and the NES Classic.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for mid90s (and any other movies we discussed)!
