An amazing piece of comedic film and Kevin Smith's best works. Clerks is a must see for all those who have felt inadequate with their day to day work life. The majority of the movie takes place at a gas station and is in black and white, making it unique and interesting from the start. Everyone had been in that phase or job that leaves them feeling unsatisfied and unsuccessful, this movie is about two buddies and how they deal with that stage in life. One of my favorite comedies of all time and in my top 100 movies.

A real zeitgeist movie that defined the slacker generation. Non-Gen Xers however will probably wonder what the all fuss is about though.

Clerks review

A film about a clerk named Dante Hicks (Brian O’Halloran) who is responsible for a local Quick Stop convenience store. He passes time by having hilarious conversations with Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) and constant vilification of customers. Dante’s girlfriend Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti) drops by the store to converse with him. Stoners Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) the whimsical pair tries to influence Dante to join them but declines. One of Dante’s ex-girlfriends died so the pair visits the wake. Despite the lamentation, the scene turns catastrophic, even without a slight harbinger. Randal says something to Veronica which in effect, has broken up with Dante. The vagary of Dante’s life has been disrupted, but is assured by his friend Randal. A few syntax of w...

Perfect Score for The Quick Stop.

Kevin Smith's debut as a director, is much more than it looks. It costed very little, with low production value, and B class acting. That doesn't take away from the fact, the little indie turned into a cult classic film. They didn't spend much, or go to much trying to dazzle their audience, and it doesn't even need it to strive. Not much can be said. It's a hilarious film, with very well done characters, and small everyday problems that we all endure, which is the reason why it is so popular. In the span of one day with Quick Stop workers Dante And Randal, you can see what they put up with in a regular work day, as you might. The music is great, and again, all the characters make it what it is. The black and white film adds a cool effect to it, though it cost much less.

Never seizes t...

Comedy masterpiece!

Clerks is a film that I greatly look up to these days. Kevin Smith did everything he could to create a story that would be both interesting to the viewer, and yet be original enough for people to want to see more than once, while at the same time sticking to the incredibly low budget that he had to work with.
Starting off with the idea of shooting everything in black and white was a great choice, because of the genre of the film and the obvious time setting not being in the era of black and white the colors alone give you the feeling of being an outside entity, as though you are watching them and you are not really involved with their lives.
Dante (O'Halloran) and Randall (Anderson) are two of what seems to be the most stereotypical depiction of what Generation X'ers are like. They ha...
