Career best from cult director
Clerks. Eat your heart out. For me, the gateway drug to Kevin Smith was the hilariously funny and oh so heathen comedy Dogma. The old couple of Affleck and Damons (when they still appeared in pal Smiths flicks) plays the two fallen angels Loki and Barthelby who finds a loop hole in the dogmatic law and sees their opportunity to get back into heaven. A small but not insignificant problem is that this little plan would stop the universe from existing. Ouch.
Never, before or after, has religion so open heartedly been spoken about as here. The difference from a lot of other religious comedies is that faith never is ridiculed here, Kevin Smith himself went to catholic school. Instead this is his way to ask all those questions he as a man of faith, obviously, should have. For an atheist, it's hilarious! In the opening scene Matt Damon converts a nun by comparing religion to Alice in Wonderland
Dogma is the highlight of Kevin Smiths career where the pop culture icons Jay & Silent Bob (the latter played by Smith himself) fits the best in with all the other fantastical characters such as Jason Lees demon, Salma Hayeks stripping muse and George Carlins thinking-out- side-of-the-box cardinal.
