5.0 out of 5 stars An Extraordinary Thing, 22 Jun. 2012
This review is from: The Doors - Special Edition [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
This is the fourth time I'm buying this movie. 2x VHS and now 2x DVD. My copies keep going missing - and I keep having my moments when I want to watch The Doors The Movie again. That's in a nutshell. Is it a great movie? If you have that whole Doors vibe going and you "get it" it absolutely is. Val Kilmer is mesmerizing on occasions, and does a fantastic job throughout. The director knew exactly what he was doing, demonstrating the coming together, sparking and disintegration process in sound and vision so much so, it hurts sometimes.

I've seen reviews where people are complaining about the wigs, about certain camera techniques, about the artistic licence that was taken to translate what are *lives* in essence into a movie that only lasts for a couple of hours; I can only say, shame you didn't get it, but that's ok. Those of us who do, we know what this is and it's an extraordinary thing which, like the Doors itself, will last the ages.
