First Review of Clerks III Kevin Smith Ben Affleck

Like Hamill, Ford and Fisher, Brian O’Halloran, Jeff Anderson and Mewes go back about thirty years of work.

Clerk III is Kevin Smith’s most personal script since his first film and the best executed since Chasing Amy – but now a director with 30 years of experience under his belt.

It’s a treasure trove of many characters to tell one story – all of Kevin’s toys. Instead of a story for new characters back in Clerks days.

Silent Bob the cinematographer as a character is awesome. The jump cuts to the re-creation of Clerks the scenes are great – while Dan Tee has that Harrison Ford utility, though he’s still clearly the Skywalker of this trilogy.

Like Hamill, Ford and Fisher, Brian O’Halloran, Jeff Anderson and Mewes go back about thirty years of work.

The third act builds up a bit of itself where Randal rewrites the ending of the movie, just like Smith himself did with Clerk III script, but then a bit Sixth Sensethe Jedi-like rides for one/two of the characters is pure genius – and dates back to the 90s when Smith was still exercising – and exorcising – his original ideas like Dogmaor the character ending you may have seen in the special features for clerks.

As Jay and Bob strike back More than 20 years ago, it was like a closing chapter for See the asymmetrical universe 1.0, then Clerk III we do as well for VAUL 2.0.

VAU 3.0 is alive and well with TUSK$ (2), Kilroy was there, our friends Moosejaws, and Yoga Hosers Too: Milk Maids.

Say I watched this and Confess, Fletch back to back, and found C:3 (in 37-D?) to be much more emotional and more of a movie than Fletch.

Again, Smith beat Fletch’s itch with Get out of the cop.

Perhaps the only problem is that Smith himself is so approachable – the Clerk III the plot here though solid – is almost non-existent if you’re part of the Kevin Smith Club or a Loyalty Podcast. It feels like it ticks all the boxes. Which I guess isn’t a bad thing.
