Alan Moore Goes Behind the Scenes in His New Film

In the short documentary embedded above, comic book writer Alan Moore talks about his new ”surrealist-noir film series” he wrote for Vice’s Motherboard.

Moore has seen his work adapted into film, but has always been unhappy with adaptations of V for Vendetta, Watchmen and From Hell. In the video embedded above, he goes behind the scenes of Jimmy’s End, the first installment in his new series. In the process, he explains what he doesn’t like about most contemporary storytelling.

Below, we’ve embedded the complete 30-minute film that Moore wrote.

Here’s more about the video: “Many of Alan Moore’s comics have been adapted for the big screen, but it’s no secret: not many of Hollywood’s takes have met with his approval. So he went and wrote his own screenplay, the first one he’s ever written, which turned into the film Jimmy’s End. Along with director Mitch Jenkins, Moore’s created an experience not unlike his celebrated Watchmen–a rich, multilayered film with a narrative that will reward repeat viewings and will live on beyond the rectangular box of the screen, spilling out into the real world.”
