Kevin Smith's directorial debut, Clerks, brought a new energy to low-budget comedies. The DVD release, which is simply a reissue of the comprehensive laserdisc, offers a fine version of the film along with a bevy of goodies. The image is a widescreen 1.85:1 transfer that charmingly reveals the film's low-budget roots. The Dolby Digital Surround mix is quite fine. The highlight of the supplemental material is a chaotic, rambling commentary track featuring Smith, his cinematographer, and a handful of cast members and journalists. They share numerous funny stories about the making of the film. Jason Mewes' snoring can be heard at one point. It is one of the funniest commentaries ever recorded. A batch of deleted scenes that are introduced by Smith are interesting, none more so than the original ending of the film. A video by Soul Asylum, directed by Smith, gives the viewer the chance to see the Quick-stop in color. This entertaining movie has been given an entertaining DVD release.
