Great making-of -- comprehensive and engaging
29 September 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

For those unfamiliar with the reference of the documentary's title, please see "Clerks." Be warned, its meaning is somewhat risqué. For anyone who's seen the film (which basically means: everyone), they'll know what I'm talking about.

The title is the key to this documentary because essentially it is "so" CLERKS. Everything about it is fit in nicely with the film, told from the same perspective, i.e. it's very Kevin Smith-ish. Smith is a fanboy like you and me so he's always willing to invest time in DVDs and fan interest (even more so than Tarantino) -- his interest in the CLERKS X 3-disc DVD is astounding and admirable.

He seems like a nice guy and he certainly has some interesting anecdotes here. I particularly enjoyed the separate "Q & A," also included on the DVD for those interested in buying. It's essentially viewers asking the cast questions about the movie, ten years later. Some of it is hilarious.

Overall, the DVD is a must-buy, if only for the third disc full of features. But it gets better, because the other two discs are just as good in terms of movie-related stuff (trailers, commentaries, etc.).

A lot of work went into this documentary and DVD. It's overwhelming, in a very good way, and one of the best I own.
