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
