A Return to Smith Greatness?
Kevin Smith conducts a Q&A session about the aftermath of his latest film, Red State (2011).
Smith's films had been going downhill for a quite a while until "Red State" completely redeemed him. I think the same can be said for this film. He has a whole series of talking DVDs, and they went downhill. But now, we again have a winner. (And, for better or worse, it is not a three-hour ordeal.)
I learned a good way to walk into Affleck's "Argo". And I also learned why Smith wrote this film as separate parts, which I think was brilliant. That movie kept us on our toes, and I am glad it did -- it was the best film Smith has done in a decade, or perhaps ever. And, yes, I learned about the scripted ending that was never shot. Wow.
And yes, Smith has put on a lot of weight.
