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.
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.See all Product Description

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