Filthy language, brilliant script!

The very realistically natural look and feel of "Clerks" is due to its legendary small budget, but its genuine feel of misfits, stoners and jerks conversing is all Kevin Smith, who definitely poured a lot of himself into this project. The script uses a heightened language, making the inhabitants of the Quick Shop seem strangely sophisticated, and highly philosophical in their ramblings and rants. As an aspiring writer I view it as an accomplishment, and even though I didn't laugh out loud frequently I nodded my head and grinned a lot at Smith's quiet brilliance.

An amazing indie gem.

Clerks is our first introduction to writer/director/actor Kevin Smith's "View Askewniverse". It's also the greatest film in that series. The characters of Dante and Randall engage in interesting, intelligent, and hilarious dialog while dealing with the boredom, hypocrisy and occasional weirdness of everyday life in a convenience store.
