Storyline

It's raining in Northampton and Faith Harrington has Friday evening ahead of her, her favorite outfit and her favorite 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... Written by Anonymous

Just brilliant!
9 February 2013 | by CaligulaAzraelSee all my reviews

A short one written by Allan Moore? This must be something! And it really is... "Act of faith" runs only eighteen minutes or so, but it will certainly satisfy your needs. Of course, only if you like dark humor and irony - this are the key words to this little masterpiece. The tension here is really unbearable, so forget about boredom. I won't describe the plot, because that would ruin the pleasure that this flick is going to give you. I'll just say that it is sexy, a little kinky and very inspiring. I'm looking forward to see another work from Moore and director Mitch Jenkins. If" Jimmy's end" is as good as this one, it's going to be real fun!
