The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web
Don't be fooled into thinking this is just a stupid perverted film...a lot of clever dialogue is mixed in with all the vulgarity. It's truly a one-of-a-kind movie. Very enjoyable, and extremely funny. It also had a very unique style to it, I can see how it can easily become a cult film.
One thing I enjoyed about the movie was the way the lines were delivered by the characters. It seemed very natural. The lines were said right on time, not a second too late. More lifelike than a lot of films.
The entire movie is shot in black-and-white, and I'm sure you know just how extremely rare that is today. It's the last 'newer' film I've seen in black and white since 1994's Ed Wood (a VERY good film, I highly recommend it!). It's actually kind of refreshing to see black & white...it has it's advantages, such as superior lighting to color productions. Although the film is colorless, it seems quite lifelike and modern.
Clerks is really a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone. It's witty dialogue and unique style make it stand out from the crowd. Undoubtly Kevin Smith's best film to date.
