Act Of Faith and Jimmy's End, short films by written Alan Moore and directed by Mitch Jenkins - dreamy, dark, disturbing and possibly NSFW (MLYT)

'written by'... I have a hangover, which as luck would have it is the perfect condition to watch those.

I had no idea he'd finished these.
Now I am afraid.

Jesus christ that was beyond amazing - Please Mr. Moore may I have another?

So Alan Moore's become a trite, predictable David Lynch (welcome to the Black Lodge except this time we're actually going to skip a metaphorical step and call it Purgatory)? I mean, I'm not complaining, it's all good fun and stuff, but did I just see some drunk womanizing asshole go to heaven while a woman is relegated to purgatory for a single instance of poor judgment?

The first film's top YouTube comment: "If anyone wants to make Alan Moore mad, they have to adapt this into a comic book."

Tedious but well done.
That's how I feel about all of Alan Moore's work, actually.
