Audience Reviews for The Mindscape Of Alan Moore
This doc was going along fine until it took a nosedive with Moore droning on about his interest in the occult.
My only problem with the film is that it's not really a documentary, it's more like a long interview. Anytime Moore is not speaking, there always seems to be some boring montage or pointless shots. Other than that everything that Moore speaks about is really fascinating, he has a unique look at the world and is very engaging. If you are a fan of Moore or just interested in philosophy I'd recommend a watch.
"The Mindscape of Alan Moore" is a first person documentary about legendary comic book writer Alan Moore that is underwhelming, despite its subject's captivating presence. Moore starts off by detailing his origins as a working class lad in Northampton, England, followed by a series of menial jobs, eventually hitting rock bottom as a comic book writer. It's at this point that the documentary loses any forward momentum, randomly going from one book to another. There is some insight into his inspiration but there is nothing new about the politics behind V for Vendetta or Watchmen that I have not read about before. What would have been much more interesting is a closer look at how Moore views the medium of comic books since he has spent so much of his career deconstructing them in his stories, outside of how they are adapted which is always a tricky business.(I disagree with him and think comic books are ideal to be made into movies since they are both primarily visual, the only drawback being budgetary.) Instead, there is a lot of personal philosophy towards the end which has no relation to his writing which is why we are here. However, his healthy attitude towards sex does lead to him writing some very provocative sounding pornography.
