Clerks







Director
- Kevin Smith

Genre - Comedy


Kevin Smith's debut is a triumph for the indieworld. It's an inspiration for anyone who has ever thought about making a film to just pick up that camera and shoot. Of course, you would also need a kickass witty script like Smith's. Most of the movie takes place in a convenience store to keep the budget low but it's the spitfire dialogue that's the star here. Charming and made with a lot of heart, this is indie at its best.

4 STARS!

this film indeed paved the way for the now abundant indie movie scene. ill be truthful and say that i didnt like this film as much when i first saw it. i came down hard (to hard no that i look back) on the acting abilities of those in the film. but as i look back and see the imprint it made on film as a whole, i can see how monumental it was. now, clerks 2 on the other hand wasn't all that great.
