When laziness is a virtue

evening twilight, the heroes are tired. A couple of Kids lurching in the middle of the road on your skateboard, left and right, passing cars, which will bring the adults home from work, the middle lane is reserved for the skaters. These are the prospects for these Kids: you are in the midst of life, but always apart.

Stevie (Sunny Suljic), 13 years old, will not longer stand by and watch from the edge, want to be part of skating. Want to gain the recognition of the Street Kids of Los Angeles, their friendship. Want to defend with you, the Terrain on which to Practice and Demonstrate their art, against the railings of the owner of the store or the security guard, the evil screaming, if the Kids do not want spaces, fenced-in courts.

Fuckshit one of Stevies new friends call him – because he constantly uses the two words – and Fourth non-Grade a other – because he acts more as a fourth-grader, and Stevie is soon Sunburn. The guys smoke and take drugs, use words such as nigga or bitches, or faggot. It is a world in itself, under the rough surface you can feel tremendous sensitivity. If Stevie goes home in the evening, he changes the smoke-filled shirt.

Long as he lives in two completely different worlds, at home and on the road. The room of his big brother Ian (Lucas Hedges) is off limits for him, it is strictly prohibited to enter it, so Stevie steals into, once the brother leaves the house. It is caves, unlike many Teenagers, incredibly tidy, clean glued pictures on the wall, everything has its place, the CDs and the DVDs. A room of worship.

Jonah Hill, Born in 1983, was socialized in Hollywood. In the troop of rough-and-tumble Comedy master Judd Apatow ("Knocked Up") he learned to lead civil standards to the point of absurdity. That's what he did with the greatest devotion as the "Bad Sitter" in the Film by David Gordon Green, or as a sidekick to Leonardo DiCaprio, the "Wolf of Wall Street" Martin Scorsese. In the case of "21 Jump Street" and "22 Jump Street" was a Hill involved on the script. In "the Mid90s," his first Film as Director, reflects on his own youth. It is a beautiful, restrained, almost chaste Film.

The skating, which is approved for next year as an Olympic discipline, it was in the nineties, Hill recalls specifically, are still very much discredited and despised, and his Film shows, how is it with the Hip-Hop gradually developed. The cheeky self-confidence of the Skater has a long Tradition, extending back to the street boys in the novels of Charles Dickens or Victor Hugo.

skating as a thing in

Who has not much to lose, is free in his Actions. Man always thinks that his own life was fucked up, says Stevies new friend Ray, embodied by the class Skater Na-Kel Smith, but then you would want to but with any other exchange. Jonah Hill is a loving observer, he makes the permeability, the inertia of a creative virtue. He is not a Moralist. The skating is not really dynamic, thrilling art in this Film, it's more piece of work, a loud singular Stunts, which did not unite for the big move, and of loneliness witnesses.
