Storyline

A view of the afterlife which reveals a dream-like truth to how people subconsciously face their end.Faith Harrington makes a few phone calls then proceeds to dress up for a night out. During her ritual, she falls into a closet that guarantees her ticket into the Matchbright & Metterton Night Club. The protagonist, James Mitchum, jumps into the door-frame of a gentlemen's club to escape the pounding rain. There, he interrupts a smoke break by one of the club's dancers. She suggests that James go into the club to grab a drink while he's waiting for the weather to pass. When James enters the club, he notices that everything is a bit removed from societal norms. Each guest looks as if they too have sought refuge in the club to escape a personal hell. James is disturbed by the sad and depressed atmosphere. His reactions are clues that his surroundings are displaced. At a table next to the bar, the proprietor, Matchbright, buys James a drink. Matchbright is accompanied by Faith.

A disappointment
17 August 2013 | by octagon79See all my reviews

First off, I am a big fan of Alan Moore's writing, I own about 50 of his books, as well as his spoken word CD's and the excellent documentary film, The Mindscape of Alan Moore. Needless to say I was expecting great things from this film, but all I got was a clichéd storyline with the most overused of all twists. The acting is great, the characters are dull and one-dimensional archetypes and the fact the entire film is shot in one location makes it feel extremely cheap. The other reviewer who called Eraserhead pretentious must not have understood it, because Eraserhead is a masterpiece, one of Kubrick's favorite films to boot; Jimmy's End and its prequel film are clearly post-Lynchian and inferior to that director's work in just about every way.I wouldn't draw such a comparison if Moore didn't make snide comments about Lynch's work when confronted with the fact that Jimmy's End uses startlingly similar imagery to some of Lynch's films, the most obvious being the focus on red drapes. So in conclusion, I'd recommend avoiding this film, as it's pretty ugly and has poor sound design plus not a single likable or relatable character. The scene with the phone ringing as a lame attempt to create tension was a direct ripoff from a Takeshi Miike film called Audition which did it much more effectively, in Jimmy's end it's just annoying, like an alarm clock you can't switch off. So yeah, avoid it if you can.
