"This is what wars are; it's not Hollywood"

Interview mit Comic-Mastermind und -Visionär Alan Moore (um das Interview lesen zu können, müssen Sie unter "Free Day Pass" ein paar Werbebanner ankucken und dann das Books-Ressort anklicken, dort finden Sie das Interview nach der Prozedur in voller Länge).

The funny thing is that Alan Moore hates to talk about film and television, because, as he explains later in our interview, both "have a lot to answer for." He's not talking about how they've distilled his densely researched, intricate tales of socio-historical interrogation, like "From Hell" and "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," into narrowcasted popcorn movies. Instead, he means the way they've had such an impact on human consciousness that many people were only able to articulate the horrific reality of 9/11 by comparing it to a disaster film.

Moore clearly believes that the same mechanism has foisted a deadly, unwanted and unnecessary war upon the world. "Television and movies have short-circuited reality," he asserts. "I don't think a lot of people are entirely clear on what is real and what is on the screen."
