Joel's 100 movies in 2015:Tusk

I've been with Kevin Smith since just before the release on video of Chasing Amy. I found Mallrats accidentally, then got referred to Clerks and the soon to arrive Amy.

He hit me just right and I followed him not only into the rest of his movies but into podcasting.

Now here, we get the movie that Smodcast built. It's a feat, no doubt about it. And Smith has found lots of things in his second act that his first didn't offer. But it doesn't have the magic for me, and is just a little too strange for its own good. 

But Guy LaPointe is the business.
