Kevin Smith launched the careers of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. His film "Chasing Amy" is part of the Criterion Collection. He has done some very cool stuff.

They were absolutely ground breaking, and knowledge of them is ubiquitous around the world.I would assume you're familiar with who Kevin Smith is(Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma, Red State).
