Clerks

When: Wed., Sept. 2, 8 p.m. 2015

For a generation that now complains of being old (even though people much older than us whine much less), Kevin Smith's Clerks is an important touchstone. Filmed in black-and-white, the dialogue-heavy comedy follows a day in the dead-end lives of convenience store clerk Dante and his friend, Randal, a video-store clerk. Even though in many ways Clerks feels like it's dripping with the '90s, it remains relevant today and still captures that listless space between youth and adulthood. Clerks shows at 8 p.m. at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood) as part of the Webster University Film Series' Strange Brew film screenings (www.webster.edu/film-series). Admission is $5.
