i haven't seen The Mindscape of Alan Moore, but the NY Sun's review of it sounds like a fair criticicm of all previous attempts to represent Alan on the small screen:

Mr. Moore's interview is great stuff; with his droopy eyes and bushy beard, he looks and sounds like a talking British bear who spends his days fixing car engines and his nights philosophizing. But the film spends too much time worshipping at his feet, rather than expanding on or challenging his views, and it embarrassingly reproduces scenes from his comics in bargain-basement eruptions of misplaced fandom that are mortifying to watch.

I haven't seen it because I met the director. I thought that was a fair representation of what was to come.

Hey, Eddie! When I was over in London for the week I picked up Monsieur Leotard in Gosh-absolutely loved it,after From Hell tis one of your best. Great stylistic uses of the form, (somersalting over sheet music)and that talking bear was a standout.
You should watch Mindscape, though.Lots of little gems like John Coulthart's Asmodeus animation,the Kev O'Neill interview...some FH snippets too.
