Kevin Smith is one of the definitive directors of Generation X. His films speak for slackers everywhere, and after spending three quarters of them making us laugh, he always takes time to insert just the right amount of heart to endear them to his audience (in the case of the exceptionally confronting Red State, forget that statement).
So, just what is his best film? While Mallrats has nostalgic value, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is perhaps the ultimate cult film, the four included in the poll we believe are the real options; showcasing his undeniable wit and ability to craft iconic characters and settings like few others. It goes without saying that if you are yet to see any of the films listed, you are certainly now recommended to do so!
Clerks is his debut film, and introduced us to Randall Graves and Jay and Silent Bob.
Chasing Amy is unarguably his most accomplished film, and deals with the drama of human relationships in a refreshingly truthful way.
Dogma features outstanding performances from a star-studded cast, as well as his most intricate and controversial plot.
… and Red State is truly one out of left field, a unique thriller that leaves a lasting and quite devastating impact.
