Comments Off on TX – Clerks II Screening
Brian O’Halloran, star of CLERKS as the legendary Dante Hicks, appears on Saturday August 6th at 4pm, courtesy of Austin Books & Comics. Special animated CLERKS shorts from Powerhouse Animation.
This unconventional sequel to the cult classic CLERKS takes an awesome approach to the convention; it’s twelve years later, and the film visits the characters with that real-time gap. The two witty slackers from the original film are now older, fatter, and their somewhat temporary jobs as convenient store clerks has reached a pathetic level as they approach their mid-thirties.
Things get even rougher when their place of employment, the Quick Stop, burns down, leaving them jobless as well as aimless. As they settle on a fast food gig, both characters evaluate their lives. Amid this crisis of ambition and masculinity, director Kevin Smith injects his characteristic wit and humor, bringing what is perhaps his most sophisticated and heartfelt comedy.
