Amazing making-of doc
26 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A really entertaining and thankfully in-depth look at the road to CLERKS, taking the journey with Kevin Smith from birth to high school sketch comedy to working odd jobs with no direction post-high school to seeing SLACKER to making the movie to getting it seen to getting it in Sundance to finally finally getting it sold. This is a refreshing departure from a lot of DVD making-of docs which are loaded with clips and halfhearted praise from the participants about everyone else on the film. The CLERKS story is one of the great underdog tales of indie film, and this doc really lays it all out carefully, clearly, and amusingly for fans and wannabes alike.
