38 – Mallrats (1995)


Director: Kevin Smith Starring: Jason Lee, Jeremy London, Shannen Doherty, Claire Forlani Running time: 94 mins

Subject: If you can stand the stink-palm jokes and blasé approach to statutory rape, this nineties slacker comedy will satisfy via soundtrack, denim centric wardrobe and a clean hero/villain dynamic. Authority figures are the villains, dudes, and it’s up to fast-talking, deeply-idle defenders of  doing what they want to vanquish them.

Like: A living, breathing comic book with a mall as the universe and Stan Lee as God.

Core truth: When good guys go up against bad guys, God will decide the outcome.
