THE MINDSCAPE OF ALAN MOORE On DVD
As Comic-Con 2008 set records for attendance this summer, much of the buzz centered on Zack Snyder's eagerly anticipated, big screen adaptation of the Hugo Award-winning cult classic graphic novel WATCHMEN, authored by legendary comic book writer Alan Moore.
Now, in the first and only documentary in which the heretofore reclusive, visionary and innovative Moore participates, his hugely-devoted fan base and the soon-to-be-indoctrinated can enter the mind of the world's most famous comic book author, embarking on a fascinating and psychedelic journey through the life and career of the creator of WATCHMEN, FROM HELL, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, CONSTANTINE and V FOR VENDETTA.
THE MINDSCAPE OF ALAN MOORE makes its DVD debut on September 30, only from The Disinformation Company.
Moore -- writer, artist and performer -- is the arguably the world's most critically acclaimed and widely admired creator of comic books and graphic novels, a true original responsible for many of the genre's iconic creations. In THE MINDSCAPE OF ALAN MOORE, viewers are granted a portrait of the artist as contemporary shaman -- someone with the power to transform consciousness by means of manipulating language, symbols and images. The award-winning film, from director DeZ Vylenz, leads the audience through Moore 's world with the writer himself as guide, beginning with his childhood background, following the evolution of his career as he transformed the comics medium, through to his immersion in a magical worldview where science, spirituality and society are part of t he same universe.
