When You're Strange: A Film About The Doors
With so much iconic musicthe kind of music that many have not actively sought out to hear, but through films and radio remain completely familiarThe Doors' place in rock history is already cemented. When You're Strange: A Film About The Doors provides a concise and compelling window into The Doors' equally rapid ascent and descent, with the background of the 1960s (Robert Kennedy, Vietnam, Charles Manson) creating a visual and sociological context for a group that couldn't have emerged or succeeded at any other time. Director Tom Dicillo's wrapping conceitan actor, clearly intended to be Jim Morrison, hitch-hiking and taking over a carfeels more than a little forced, but doesn't detract from the film's honesty and factual accuracy, painting a complete picture of The Doors for all its good...and all its bad.
Production Notes: 96 minutes. Extras: exclusive interview with Jim Morrison's father, Admiral George C. Morrisonm USN [Ret].
