Cinema Purgatorio: This is Sinerama #1

May 15, 2021

Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill follow up their vaunted League series with a collaboration that plays to their strengths. Taken from the pages of the Cinema Purgatorio anthology, this collection features dreamlike episodes in which a narrator visits a macabre and disturbing revival theatre. The films she and we watch are both familiar and alien. Weaving together Moore's predilection for cultural history, the dreamlife surrounding ‘reality', and human accountability through O'Neill's unique sensibility and craft, this slim yet satisfying volume is searing and sanguine in its salutation to sin – a fitting capstone and counterpoint to the League work.
