If it doesn’t hit you when you’re watching his characters swing back and forth on fast dialogue, it may hit you when you check out his Q & A’s. But, eventually, it should hit you like a hockey player being slammed against the glass; Kevin Smith is not an ordinary filmmaker. He’s sometimes argued to be the independent movie genre’s savior with his 1994 release of Clerks, a film that, to this day, is looked at with a particular reverence. His characters are off-the-cuff, observing, age-captured philosophers who throw pervasive, sexual dialogue into their every day conversations the way you’d salt french fries.

If you haven’t caught on, Kevin Smith is easily one of the heroes of modern day film making and comic book writing. »
