U.S., 1994, 92 min, 2K DCP, Dir. Kevin Smith, Rated R, Park Circus
“Within the limitations of his bare-bones production, Smith shows great invention, a natural feel for human comedy, and a knack for writing weird, sometimes brilliant, dialogue.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
It’s hard to get more indie than Kevin Smith’s debut film Clerks, made on a $27,575 budget and mainly funded by 10 credit cards Smith had to his name and the extensive comic book collection he sold. Thanks to his ingenuity and aptitude for telling a story about regular Joes, what resulted is one of the funniest, most charming, and quotable films of the 90’s indie boom. Dante (Bill O’Halloran), already living a miserable life, reaches a new low when he’s called into work on his day off and has to put up with shoplifters, wakes, break-ups, and debates about independent contractors working on the Death Star. 25 y ears later, Smith’s debut is as fresh ever.
