Today, Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins‘ new film, Jimmy’s End, has been released online, for free. It can be seen, above. I recommend the biggest screen you can lay your hands on.
It’s part of a series of projects from the pair revolving around the same narrative, characters and location. You can also watch the prequel, An Act Of Faith, which will give a different perspective to Jimmy’s End, below.
We’ve all been there: in the lapses after midnight, stumbling down unfamiliar gutters after one too many for the road and looking for inviting lights before they call last orders. James is trying to lose himself, but in a fractured men’s room mirror finds the eyes that have been waiting for him.
Following from the unnerving prelude Act of Faith, Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins unveil a phantasmagoric English dreamtime made of goosefleshed pin-up girls, burned out comedians and faulty lights, with judgement just behind the tinsel
Jimmy’s End pulls back the purple drapes upon an intricate new planet of desire and mystery. We’ve all been there.
