Editorial Reviews

Review

If you aren't careful, Moore might actually drop a theory or two into your head that just won t go away no matter how hard you or the Illuminati try ... as for this documentary, one could say Vylenz pulled the curtain back on Moore and gave us a glimpse. --Newsarama.com

Not many people can sustain interest for an hour and a half simply by articulating their world view. Alan Moore pulls it off.

The reclusive British comic book writer behind 'Watchmen,' 'V for Vendetta,' 'From Hell' and other ground-breaking bleakfests, lays it all out ... The two-disc package from filmmaker DeZ Vylenz focuses on Moore, who stares straight into the camera as he expounds on everything from fascism and Swamp Thing to Reagan-era politics, celebrity, surveillance, pornography and magic. --Wired.com's Underwire

Strange but excellent 'The Mindscape of Alan Moore' documentary ... Famously reclusive, cantankerous and interview-averse, Moore actually cooperated in the making of this documentary, which makes it a singular achievement right out of the box.

Director DeZ Vylenz has made some kind of crazy art-film gem here, stretching a single sit-down interview with Moore into a full-length feature on comics, creativity, mysticism, quantum physics, and the meaning and structure of the universe. According to Alan Moore, anyway. --The News & Observer

3.0 out of 5 stars Have Your Own Mindscape Blown September 8, 2008
Format:DVD
While I think an objective documentary about Alan Moore is in order, this trip through his current headspace is enough to spark some thought. It divides up into two areas -- first Moore talks about how he got into comics and what inspired his seminal works, but then the interview segues into his current worldview, where it may lose people that aren't his fans. (When he starts talking about magic, both he and the director make oblique references to Promethea, but as a phase of his professional career, it isn't really explained.)

Along the way, the director stages pieces of Moore's work -- a chilling moment from V which is far more effective than the Wachowskis, the diary of Rorschach and repeated imagery which seems to be meant to evoke Swamp Thing and John Constantine.

Moore has a lot on his mind, and it's interesting, though director Vylenz could have culled a bit of his repetition. The second disc consists of interviews with some of Moore's artistic collaborators, which does make this a must-have for discriminating comics fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars This documentary changed my perspective on life December 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Alan Moore is one of the (if not THE) most celebrated and awarded writers in the comic book (or graphic novel) medium. This documentary film is an indepth look into the life, influences, thoughts and musings of Alan Moore. While I had a hard time understanding Mr. Moore's very thick accent (I watched it with subtitles on), it was by no means a distraction from the contents of the film, namely a journey into Moore's mind and his creative process. This film also has had a very strong impact in how I view life, creativity and the medium of literature and art. This film is a must see for anyone who cares about the creative process and our culture in general. Brilliant, poignant and very thought-provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended !! October 28, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I didnt have much knowledge of Alan Moores work. I saw the watchmen movie, even though I had never heard of the comic book. I never saw V is for vendetta. I was still very impacted by this DVD. The whole thing is just him sitting in front of the camera and talking about his work and his thoughts on magick, spirituality, and the role of the artist in society, and it is enthralling!

5.0 out of 5 stars love this December 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So the first part is just his comic book history, but then he gets into more intellectual subjects and its very interesting how he summarizes the universe. I love this DVD a must have for every conscious being.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imagery, Language and a Viewpoint October 20, 2010
Format:DVD
I was absolutely entranced by this. As much as it was interesting to hear him talking about comics and his career, I was actually far more interested when it went beyond that and really became about Moore's Mindscape. How he views the world and what drives him. From comics, to pornography and magic, it gives insight into how one of the greatest writers of the last 50 years sees the world.

I've been a fan of Alan Moore for over half of my life. Naturally, I snagged this documentary up at my first opportunity. I was not disappointed.

The film combines in-depth interviews and monologues with/by Alan Moore with related (although at times, psychedelic) imagery. If you're open-minded enough to read Alan Moore, this documentary should most definitely be up your alley.
