In part 4 of Lee Stanhan’s interview with Kevin Smith, the filmmaker talks about the dark side of the internet. Most director’s I know subscribe to the google alerts for their name and pay attention to what is said about them online, but they don’t interact back with the fans or critics. Smith has invested more time on the internet than most of the people in Hollywood, taking it to an extreme. Kevin was the first filmmaker to build a website community around his films. But outside of the fandom exists a lot of hateful criticism. It’s interesting to hear about this world from the side of a filmmaker, and to learn about Smith’s changing views about this world. Watch the video interview after the jump.
