With the launch of his new web showing, Spoilers, Kevin Smith has once again propelled himself into the spotlight with plenty of controversy, complaining and humor. The indie director has gone from being a darling of the indie scene to one of the most outspoken directors out there, especially when it comes to film critics. Whether this is for better or for worse is up for debate, and that's a debate we'll be having this week.
All week long we'll be posting articles on Kevin Smith and dissecting who the director was and is, and what he means to the industry as a whole. We'll be doing everything from a look at his earliest films to discussing whether his current attitude towards film critics and journalists is really warranted. So stick around, it's definitely going to be a fun time.
