Clerks And Chasing Amy

Author:   

Description for CLERKS & CHASING AMY by Kevin Smith:

Here in one volume are two screenplays by Kevin Smith, one of today's most original filmmakers. "Clerks" was the independent film success story of 1994, winning the Prix de la Jeunesse and the International Critics Week Award at Cannes, and the Filmmakers' Trophy at Sundance. Set in the everyday world of a New Jersey QuickStop and its adjacent video store, the film revolves around the obsessions, love lives, and friendships of the clerks. Janet Maslin of the New York Time called it "a buoyant comedy...and exuberant display of ingenuity," and Kenneth Turan of the "Los Angeles Times" raves, "Clerks is boisterous and irreverently funny...an example of what is best and most hopeful about the American independent film scene."

In CHASING AMY, Smith's latest film and a Premiere Selection at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, lifelong best friends Holden and Banky are enjoying success as the creators of the cult hit comic book "Bluntman and Chronic". When they meet fellow comic-book artist Alyssa, Holden's desire for her is immediate. Alyssa, however, has set her roman tic sights elsewhere. In spite of this, a friendship blooms, which presents Holden with a dilemma---feeling as he does, can he merely be friends with this woman? Banky doesn't think so, and grows more and more frustrated at the notion of losing his best friend to emotional adulthood. CHASING AMY showcases Smith's keen ear for dialogue, his no-holds-barred take on friendships and relationships, and above all, his ability to see life a little askew, with a sharp, sometimes confrontational sense of humor that makes him such a singular voice in film today.
