THIS IS A SMOKING CINEMA
Mobile Kino presents | Clerks
Shot in grainy black and white and loosely based on director Kevin Smith’s life at the time, this no-budget film follows a convenience store clerk and his video-store-clerk best friend over the course of a single day.
Clerks captures both the banality of service work and a sort of dirtbag-vérité weirdness that would end up becoming a go-to template for Nineties indie movies; just for kicks, he throws in a stoner duo (hello, Jay and Silent Bob!).
Between its foul-mouthed running commentary on everything from Star Wars to dicks and its dead-on sense of grungy ennui, Smith’s D.I.Y. debut captures a certain post-Slacker cultural moment and traps it in amber. AB
