Comic creator Alan Moore is no stranger to having his work adapted for the screen, but it’s only recently that the revered artist has started making his own films. Today, we bring you his latest.
Moore has teamed up with photographer Mitch Jenkins to release his second short – a dark little tale entitled Jimmy’s End. If you love Moore’s work, and eerie tales, you’ll certainly want to set aside 32 minutes to check this out.
The follow-up to Act of Faith is a mesmerizing creation – beautifully shot and crafted – but we’re not surprised, given Moore’s other works. Here’s the synopsis of the film for those of you who are curious:
We’ve all been there: in the lapses after midnight, stumbling down unfamiliar gutters after one too many for the road and looking for inviting lights before they call last orders. James is trying to lose himself, but in a fractured men’s room mirror finds the eyes that have been waiting for him.
Following from the unnerving prelude Act of Faith, Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins unveil a phantasmagoric English dreamtime made of goosefleshed pinup girls, burned-out comedians and faulty lights, with judgment just behind the tinsel.
Jimmy’s End pulls back the purple drapes upon an intricate new planet of desire and mystery. We’ve all been there.
