5.0 out of 5 stars His name is Sang? As in past tense?, 2 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Clerks (3 Disc Steelbook Collector's Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I first saw this film more than a few years ago on filmfour and was so impressed I tracked down and bought the only available copy which was a £17 VHS tape. Though I thought it a worthwhile purchase at the time, had I known that just a couple of months later they'd bring out a 3 disc special edition I probably would have held out a little longer.

What you have on the first disc is the theatrical cut (basically the 'final' version) of Clerks complete with commentary and some other fun bonus features (audition footage, additional scenes), then the second disc houses the original version which was shown at festivals. This cut is probably most notable for its shock alternative ending, though its somewhat less pacey that the later version.

The extras-packed third disc was just brilliant, especially the "Snowball Effect" featurette. It really unravels the underlying structural elements of the film and takes you step by step through the production process. As an aspiring film-maker I found this very insightful, but its great viewing material even if you're just curious how one of the 90s best comedies was made.

Overall, I'd say this package is a must buy for any fan of offbeat comedy or independent films.
