Have Your Own Mindscape Blown

"While I think an objective documentary about Alan Moore is in order, this trip through his current headspace is enough to spark some thought. It divides up into two areas -- first Moore talks about how he got into comics and what inspired his seminal works, but then the interview segues into his current worldview, where it may lose people that aren't his fans. (When he starts talking about magic, both he and the director make oblique references to Promethea, but as a phase of his professional career, it isn't really explained.)
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."
This documentary changed my perspective on life

"Alan Moore is one of the (if not THE) most celebrated and awarded writers in the comic book (or graphic novel) medium. This documentary film is an indepth look into the life, influences, thoughts and musings of Alan Moore. While I had a hard time understanding Mr. Moore's very thick accent (I watched it with subtitles on), it was by no means a distraction from the contents of the film, namely a journey into Moore's mind and his creative process. This film also has had a very strong impact in how I view life, creativity and the medium of literature and art. This film is a must see for anyone who cares about the creative process and our culture in general. Brilliant, poignant and very thought-provoking."
Only for fans of Moore

"I realize that to some people Alan Moore is a God. He is interesting for a bit, but no amount of intrusive music and staged Floyd-like film inserts could really cover up for the sheer pretentious gibberish that barrages the viewer of this documentary. The worst aspect of the endless torrent of laconic speaking ... is how quickly the more interesting and publicly consumable works like Watchmen, From Hell, and V for Vendetta are brushed past.
Seriously, this is only for the true blue fan.
An interesting and insightful tour through the mind of a gen

"I've been a fan of Alan Moore for over half of my life. Naturally, I snagged this documentary up at my first opportunity. I was not disappointed.
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."
