Talk about K. Smith's "Clerks." (1994), "Chasing Amy" (1997) & "Dogma" (1999)


Hello Chicago Film Lovers!

It's a new year and what better way to the celebrate the first month of 2014 then to discuss a trilogy, to be specific, the trilogy of Kevin Smith's films in the 1990s: "Clerks." (1994), "Chasing Amy" (1997) & "Dogma" (1999). So please join me January 15, 2014 at 7:30 PM at our usual spot, Argo Tea, to talk about the the three early works of Kevin Smith. (I substituted "Dogma" for "Mallrats" because of it's popularity, four films is too much and does not make a trilogy :) ).

Your proud be to organizer,

Rebecca

      Yep, kinda sucks, really was looking forward to this one. Going to get some more sleep now and hopefully I'll be a 100 percent by tomorrow :)

    As always, great discussion. Really enjoyed revisiting Kevin's earlier works.

    Take a look at the original ending for "Clerks"!

    For all the criticism Harvey Weinstein gets for mangling filmmakers' personal vision, you have to admit he made the right call here.

    Looking forward to talking about Kevin Smith, a fascinating figure whose story reminds me of John Wayne's tale in "The Searchers" or Warren Beatty's in "McCabe and Mrs. Miller".

      Harvey completely made the right call. The alternate ending would have been all wrong.

    I totally failed to catch up, so I'm going to sit out this discussion unfortunately.

      Oh bummer! Just so you know 2 out of the three are on Netflix, Clerks. and Chasing Amy. No worries though, see you next time :)

    Nice picture of "Kevin Smith's Guernica" up there. If "The World's End" finished the "Cornetto Trilogy", what ties these three movies together (besides Jay and Robert the Silent, of course)?

      I think "Dogma" ties them together because it's sort of the world's end.

    I totally love Kevin Smith's work -- and yes, Dogma will have to be part of this discussion. It's one of my favorites ever.

    Oh YES! Heh heh, excited for this one! Might throw in a few Dogma references too (guilty pleasure) ;)
