Watch Alan Moore's Jimmy's End

No comments: Links to this post

Been a kid from UK who loved comic books in 1980's I didn't go for the typical Beano, Dandy, Topper,I just loved something a little darker, gritter sometimes surreal like 2000AD, Watchmen and V For Vendetta. It was unusual choices as I first went to primary school in 1980 starting high school 1988. There's one man I have to thank is Alan Moore the British cult comic book writer and his latest story come film Jimmy's End has appeared online in it's entirety.

Jimmy's End is a 32 minute short film which is part of a bigger project revolving around the same narrative, characters and locations. When you watch the film you can see a big David Lynch feel to it, very intense, surreal and full of sexual tension, it's neo-noir ala 1950's style at it's most disturbing. After you watch the film check out the 19 minute prequel Act Of Faith and spend an glorious hour in the company of Britain's finest comic book writer Alan Moore!

Did someone say bizzare?!

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.

Unsettling Trailer For Dutch Drama The Odd One Out (Vreemd bloed)

About 11 years ago whilst at college I had a part time job at a well known British supermarket chain (wont name names but a tv chef in there ads likes his pukka) and how they worked and I was put in the butcher section. I really did hate cut things, blood out of the packaging and I'm not a vegetarian but the funny thing was the person I replace was a vegan! how could the girl work in such an environment!

When you watch VREEMD-BLOED (The Odd One out) who feel for Jere the youngest of a family of violent butchers, he is the odd one out, he doesnt want to be a butcher but he is forced to follow the family tradition. The whole trailer is like Jere's one big nightmare as he learns the cruelity at a young age the surreal trailer glides throug his life and after the openingyou think this will be a gorefest movie but it's not.

As they say never judge a book by its cover, trailer after the break...
