Product Description

Product Description

Oliver Stone directs this film biography of Jim Morrison, lead singer of the celebrated 1960s rock group The Doors. It traces the group's road to success, from their first rehearsal sessions through to their sell-out live concerts, and follows Morrison on the self-destructive path which would eventually take him to an early death. Starring Val Kilmer as Morrison, Meg Ryan as his girlfriend Pamela Courson, and Kyle MacLachlan as Ray Manzarek, the band's organist.

From Amazon.co.uk

Thanks in large part to its meticulous re-creation of the late-1960s and early-'70s rock scene and the uncannily authentic performance by Val Kilmer as legendary Doors frontman Jim Morrison, Oliver Stone's hypnotic film biography is standing the test of time. Capturing the carefree mood of the Age of Aquarius, the film charts the meteoric rise of the Doors on the California club circuit (including a memorable scene showing the creation of the hit "Light My Fire"), and chronicles the band's exploits with hallucinogenics and Morrison's battles against charges of public indecency on stage. Kilmer's performance is hauntingly perfect, and performances by Meg Ryan, Kathleen Quinlan and Kyle MacLachlan are similarly impressive. The movie doesn't fully probe the depths of Morrison's character, but as a portrait of excess it is vividly true to the spirit of the self-destructive poet known to his fans as "The Lizard King". --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There's a lot of disparity of opinion here about whether the film is great or terrible, and the truth is that it really is pretty good; not mind bendingly brilliant, but a really honest artistic attempt at recreating the life of the Doors and Jim Morrision at the time. I was afraid it would be a shameless rummage through Doors hits, and an excuse to plaster them on screen, exploiting the Morrison myth, but it's really not. It follows Morrison from the beginning of the 60's up until his death, and along the way gives a perspective on the wayward ride there. It is not a definitive account, but how could it be? It will not satisfy everyone's 'expectations', but then again the myth surrounding Morrison is so prolific and varying that no film ever will do this. Also, people looking to mindlessly venerate Jim Morrison might want to reconsider buying it, or change their perspective. It is not a hallowed hall of shining glory all the way through, and if it was, it wouldn't be a very accurate depiction of Jim's life, or the Doors' music.

What it is, is a really good attempt at rendering a subjective look at the Doors and Morrison; part myth, part fact, and at times as listless as Morrison's own mind must have been. It's helped on by Val Kilmer who, as the official review up there says, does a frighteningly good Morrison singing impression. He looks the part and acts it well, and is follwed by great supporting actors. There are some reviews here deriding Kilmer, but I think from looking at them, they mostly have to do with people projecting their desire to have the 'real' Jim Morrison, and that's not going to happen.

Oliver Stone has captured and era and tells the story of The Doors. Val Kilmer has the most convincing voice with actually singing, sounding like the voice of Jim Morrison - this is no lip snyc act, which makes this performance just believalble.

Love or hate the Doors, or Jim Morrison, those were the days and this film caputures the zeitgeist of the time.

I first owned this film on video (remember those?) and it reintroduced me to The Doors. It has dated a little yet that feels alright as it makes it seem authentic. I have all The Doors music and books of Jim Morrison's poems and they tweak my heart as I miss my youth and it echoes in films such as this. Jim Morrison was flawed whereas the rest of the band were fairly level headed, but the naive compexity of his lyrics are still rather obscure in meaning. I love this film and think Val Kilmer is quite brilliant. 4 stars because it is open to debate as to accuracy, but worth an archive spot in anyone's library.

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.

This is a good film. I don't know how close it could be to the "real story" but it's well acted and realistic. Like the Pink Floyd in their time carrying on with a messed up Syd Barrett, this looks like Morrison needed some help and wasn't getting it. For anyone that fancies being a pop star, maybe this will cure that idea - that doesn't look like fun at all.

This was a less compelling experience than I had hoped. It feels like a big-budget excessive trip of a film, yet is oddly cold. Consisting very largely of scenes with groups of people, if not masses, it allows us to witness countless examples of ugly behaviour. There is a kind of boredom, almost, about endless girls parading naked, and high, on stage, while Jim does his thing. It really doesn't look as if anyone was having that good a time, which I suspect is a wrong impression, but to try to recreate the mood of the late 60s with the pressure to produce a Hollywood hit film, that takes itself very seriously as a cultural statement, has led simply to an impression of rather tawdry humanity letting it all hang out. The other problem, which compounds this, is the fact that Jim Morrison is seen very much from the outside; at no point is there any real insight into a human being. Val Kilmer's performance just seems to be about mugging attitudes, really, and a convincing imitation of a rock star on stage - but it needs to be more. In other films of teeming characters around a central star - Velvet Goldmine, for instance, where Ewan MacGregor's Kurt Wild really was brilliantly charismatic, or Bette Midler in The Rose, or Cillian Murphy in Breakfast on Pluto (not that he was playing a star, but the template was similar) there is far greater warmth and tenderness, whatever else. This no doubt has to do with the script as well as the acting - also with the direction - but in The Doors, it feels as if this is a paper-thin portal to a bit of phony voodoo, and lots of extras losing their balance. The band members are all well played - it was good to see Kevin Dillon and Kyle MacLachlan making something of their roles, and hairstyles and clothes are generally quite cool - and Dillon's moustache, almost a touch of Village People ...
