Evidently Smith, who shot the acclaimed movie Clerks on roughly the same amount of money I make in a year and had it blow the roof off everything, recently went on a speaking tour of several American colleges and universities for protracted Q&A sessions. If you're profoundly enamored of Smith's movies, this selection of the best questions will probably be right up your street. If you're even entertained by the movies, as I am, you'll probably see enough to hold your interest, and there are some interesting nuggets regarding filmmaking and filmmakers that will have broad audience appeal.
However, for all but the most dedicated fans, what you're looking at here frequently descends into a lengthy parade of penis and fart jokes, trivial personal anecdotes, and rambling stories that only the most dedicated fans will be able to keep up with for any length of time.
I'm sure the story of the first time he made love to his wife is profoundly interesting to Smith and his fans. Ditto the story of his brief personal feud with Tim Burton or how Jason Mewes came up with his catch lines like "Snoogens." But I'm an adult now, and calibrating penis stories or investigating the etymology of a baby-talk word just goes right past me like a shot.
Dedicated View Askew fans will probably find more than enough material in this to keep them coming back. I find an adolescent appeal to the worst juvenalia that keeps cropping up on college campuses. I should have saved those three hours out of my life for something more constructive.
