Clerks is awesome — 5 years ago
This was the movie that lead me to the genius that is Kevin Smith. This was his first movie and I think it’s the second best movie he has ever made. This is one of the comedies that echo truth that exists in you that you can only understand if you have actually worked as a convenience store clerk. The lead character Dante Hicks has to deal with irate customers, a girlfriend that has issues with his stature in life, an nymphomatic ex-girlfriend, and a best friend that almost wants to see him fail.
This is one of the ultimate slacker comedies. I was first aware of because of an article in Details magazine hailing it as one the latest and greatest independent films released. I went out to Suncoast Video (do those even exist anymore?) and purchased the VHS tape for 29.99 and went home and immediately popped it in the video tape.
This is one the best movie for one liners that you repeat to your friends. This is one of the movies where either you get it or you don’t. It’s one of the greatest slacker comedies made. If you haven’t seen this movie, stop what you are doing and go out and get it.
