Nothing is missing from all the existing documentaries about American high school kids in this post-Cold-War worldbut maybe there's something that could be taken away: agenda and narrative structure (which the directors of Only the Young wanted nothing to do with). It's a movie about two SoCal skateboard punks and best friends who also happen to be evangelical Christians, and so what? Pairing the look of a classic coming-of-age soap with a story cut loose from order, Mims and Tippet depict the reality of growing up and make us recall an aimlessness we have actually experienced.
