Cult comic book writer Alan Moore, best known for “Watchmen” and “V for Vendetta,” has just debuted the first film he has scripted, a 30-minute short called “Jimmy’s End.”
Like a lost fantasy sequence from “Twin Peaks,” “Jimmy’s End” sees James/Jimmy (Darrell D’Silva) explore a fantastic afterlife of burlesque dancers and thugs. The film, directed by Mitch Jenkins, features music by Andy Broder (Fog), Adam Drucker (doseone) and Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio).
Several of Moore’s works have been made into films; “V for Vendetta,” “Watchmen,” “The League of Extraordinary Gentleman” and “From Hell” are all based on Moore’s work, though he has what can generously be described as a complicated relationship with the adaptations and has publicly distanced himself from them.
The film is a part of Vice Magazine’s Motherload.tv YouTube channel. Check it out below:
It just so happens that Indiewire parent company SnagFilms has a biographical documentary on Moore, “The Mindscape of Alan Moore” in their library. View that film below:
