In The Mindscape of Alan Moore we see a portrait of the artist as contemporary shaman, someone with the power to transform consciousness by means of manipulating language, symbols and images.
The film leads the audience through Moore s world with the writer himself as guide, beginning with his childhood background, following the evolution of his career as he transformed the comics medium, through to his immersion in a magical worldview where science, spirituality and society are part of the same universe.

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

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.
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.
