a great documentary about a great movie-all clerks fans should see this.
30 July 2005 | by (Conn) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this very unusual and engrossing documentary about the Making of "Clerks"-one of the greatest movies ever made in my opinion. This is not your typical documentary. We are introduced to just about everybody who had a hand in Clerks, from Smith's family, to his friends and the cast, plus all the people who helped turn this movie into a major success.

But mostly this is about Smith himself, an incredibly talented, brilliant person who comes across just as witty, non pretentious, and real, as the characters in Clerks. In fact watching Snowball Effect is a lot like watching Clerks itself. It's a great thing when a movie is recognized for just being a good movie.

I can't even count the times I've seen Clerks and I know that for many people, this is way more then just a movie, it's a slice of life. Smith's "Clerks" and his determination in making it was a labor of love and this documentary highlights the way it all came about from the idea, to the actual creation. It is a must see for any major fan of Clerks.
