Wonderful doc about the movie that started Kevin Smith's career
18 February 2014 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

Being a huge Kevin Smith fan, it is hard to not get all the information regarding everything he does. We all know how much he shares with the world via his Q and As, podcasts and tweets. When I was given the assignment to do a presentation on how he funded 'Clerks', I told my teacher that I could do the assignment from memory without doing research because I already knew. However, I decided to beef it up and looked for additional information. I got some good stuff off the internet but then was reminded of the documentary on the 'Clerks X' DVD. Being a DVD collector, I own so many that I forget to watch the bonus features. How I managed to never have seen this is beyond me.

Finally watched it and I was afraid I would have heard it all before. I was wrong! There was so much additional information that I hadn't heard before. Info from Mosier and other sources that I hadn't even heard their names before. Great watch! ESSENTIAL for any TRUE Kevin Smith fan.
