Not bad
2 August 2013 | by the_bloody_awful_poetSee all my reviews

As a huge fan of Kevin Smith, and by extension, everyone involved with Smith, I have spent the best part of the last 15 years consuming everything View Askew/SModcast etc. With that being said, I put off watching this, technically Smith's first film, for some unknown reason. After finally getting round to watching, I have to say, it's not that dissimilar to the linear editing projects I created back in 2004. In fact, had this been produced back then, by a fellow class mate, it would have been the strongest flick in the class. I now have faith that someone in my graduating class will go on to become a filmmaker. Investigating, I looked up everyone involved with the doc, most of which have dabbled every now and then but only Kevin and Scott have gone on to become filmmakers. Ability and natural talent is one thing but I think the elements that will aid you in your struggle are love and dedication for the craft. You have to love movie making, you have to be so in love that the idea of doing anything else for the rest of your life makes you feel sick. That's why Smith and Mosier made it. The foundations were in place when they shot this flick but it wouldn't be until 94, that the due truly found their way.
