“This job would be great if it wasn’t for the f***ing customers.”
In 1994, a young writer-director (and Vancouver Film School dropout) named Kevin Smith made a huge splash on the cinematic landscape with his feature debut CLERKS; an oddball, brazen, occasionally filthy (snowball!) yet thoroughly independent effort that centered on a day-in-the-life of a group of Gen-X employees at a convenience store in New Jersey…
The rest, as they say, is history.
“CLERKS is so utterly authentic that its heroes have never heard of their generation.” (Roger Ebert)
“CLERKS remains a defining debut, a symbolic shot into the darkened domain of legitimate moviemaking.” (Pop Matters)

CLERKS (Kevin Smith, 1994 / 92 mins / 18A) Convenience and video store clerks Dante and Randal are sharp-witted, potty-mouthed and bored out of their minds. So in between needling customers, the counter jockeys play hockey on the roof, visit a funeral home and deal with their love lives.
