really liked it
Read in January, 2001

The absolute best part of this is the introduction by Kevin Smith. How honest he is about the entire process of starting "Clerks" was really interesting and eye-opening, the kind of thing that makes you say, if he could do it...

I especially liked the part about after getting bashed for making "Mallrats" how one movie reviewer that honestly tried to interpret and understand what Smith was doing was able to elaborate that within the overall issues with the movie, that there were elements of truth and beauty. How Smith was able to channel that feedback into "Chasing Amy" is probably the turning point of his career.

So, read this for the scripts (Clerks probably works better in your mind than it does on cheap filmstock anyway) but enjoy also the cool commentary from Kevin Smith at the beginning.
