This documentary tells the story of the wonderful mind of Alan Moore from graphic novels to anti-hollywood rants and his life as an artist and magician (not the show magician type either).

“I would have hoped that people would have learned that bringing disowned former ideas of mine to the big screen against my best advice tends to lead to a flood of anarchists stampeding across the world stage dressed as the main character from V for Vendetta. An attempt to film Promethea would almost certainly result in the apocalypse – but that’s probably more a matter to take up with Warner Bros, rather than with me.” Alan Moore
