Clerks captures this life very well — the drudgery, the unfulfilled promise, the “characters” . . . is this really what I’ve been doing for two decades? In fact, it is, in large part.

Kevin Smith used his work experience to propel himself into a creative enterprise, into a job he really liked, you might say, whereas I seem only to have made myself the more fiercely ensconced.

This is my first time seeing one of his movies and I intend to watch them all now. Mallrats should be coming soon.
