This review is from: When You're Strange - A Film About The Doors [DVD] (DVD)
I am a Doors fan, I have read books on Jim Morrison and because I have done my research this dvd was so disappointing for me. I had such high expectations but couldn't believe how short it was and how biased it was. Until I saw the end credits and the Courson family are credited so don't expect any dialogue concerning Pams Heroin addiction, the financial drain she was on him with her boutique in LA, the Count De Breteuil who was the "drug dealer to the stars" supplying Keith Richards and others who had died, (allegedly supplying the heroin that killed Jim accidently as he took Pams line instead of his coke). She had an affair with this guy when Jim was sleeping with other women too, abortions were had by girls who slept with Jim.
No mention of the OD in the Rock and Roll Circus on the toilet. No mention to why when he died did she ring the Count who came over and broke into the toilet to get him out. No mention of why they didn't tell the police who he was and why they buried him first then released the story after. Jim was put on dry ice in the apartment for a couple of days as they couldn't bury him without his documents from America and it was 4th July holidays over there. Everthing was closed.
It was good to see the Feast of Friends footage and Jims film HWY. But if you want to know about Jim and the Doors then read a book. Don't watch this. Just remembered something else. Jim apparently rang John Densmore from Paris to say he was coming back. Jim hated JD why would he ring him? This has been disputed many times but we only have the accounts of those who are alive now and don't want their association with Jim to be tainted. This film could've been so great.
