A no holds barred concert with award winning filmmaker and raconteur Kevin Smith. In this special celebrating his milestone 40th birthday, Kevin answers questions from his fans, revealing stories and hilarious truths. In HD.
Kevin Smith is anything but quiet in this new comedy special that was recorded an hour before his heart attack in February. Before he nearly died backstage, onstage he discusses his marriage, his kid and his work (or lack thereof).
An Evening With Kevin Smith documents the director's 2001/2002 speaking tour through 5 stops, including Cornell University, Indiana University, Kent State University, University of Wyoming, and Clark University. Students from all 5 schools ask Kevin about anything ranging from his takes on religion to his relationship with Jason Mewes.Written by
At his performance at Cornell, Smith began by stating that he would stay longer than anyone else in the auditorium, because he didn't have class the next day. In fact, he kept going for 4-5 hours, only stopping when his wife forced him to. See more »
Smith clearly exaggerates and embellishes the interaction his had between individuals in his personal professional, and private life. See more »
That's why you'll never see my name next to Scorsese, Woody Allen, and Spike Lee. Scorsese speaks a lot at NYU, and I'm damn skippy no one's ever been like, "I'll suck your dick for five bucks!"

`An Evening with Kevin Smith' is a series of question and answer sessions between Kevin Smith and various college audiences across the country that is incredibly engaging, informative and entertaining. As a fan of Kevin Smith The Man, and not Kevin Smith The Director, I found it to be three and a half hours of sheer bliss. As a matter of fact, I'm not only not a fan of Kevin Smith's movies, (with the definite exception of `Clerks', both the film and the animated series) I absolutely HATE every film that he has produced since his debut, which makes the fact that I found the questions and answers about some of his film projects very interesting so important in epitomizing the greatness of this `documentary'.
I envision Kevin Smith's future as being this generation's Martin Scorsese a filmmaker who is also a scholar and teacher of film. `An Evening with Kevin Smith' showcases Smith's humility, his sense of humor and his `everyman' quality, all factors that make him an endearing and engaging figure. This film is long, but it is definitely a must-see for any film fanatic, whether you like his films or, like me, simply love the man.
