Re: Is Kevin Smith's career over?

The version of his career where he continued to grow as a film maker and build on the potential seen in Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Dogma died a long time ago.

That being said, I would say his career thriving at the moment, he has always been out in front in the podcast/digital space, and he seems to have found the path that makes him happy, which is all that matters.

So no, career is not dead.

I was talking about Tarantino.
