Check This... Alan Moore's Short Films 'Act Of Faith' & 'Jimmy's End'

 On this check this... is Alan Moore & Mitch Jenkins short films 'Act Of Faith. and 'Jimmy's End'

'Act Of Faith: It’s raining in Northampton and Faith Harrington has Friday evening ahead of her, her favourite outfit and her favourite face, her top tunes shimmering on the CD player: “When the lamp burns low on the bureau, even though I’m far from you…”

In a curtain-raiser prelude to their forthcoming short film Jimmy’s End, Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins, with Siobhan Hewlett, introduce us to a world of unfamiliar atmospheres, precarious entertainments, and insidious detail. Act of Faith unveils an isolated corner of the modern night, where carrion crows become the only comforters and it’s a quarter to eternity…

'Jimmy's End': 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.
