Starring Val Kilmer, in one of his best performances as the late poet/musician Jim Morrison, the movie is director Oliver Stone's view of what seems to be the shortest, but also one of the most legendary, careers in rock n roll history. The movie not only focuses on Jim's obsession, and eventual flirtation, with death and constant dive into a haze of alcohol and drugs, but of the fustration and pain of his bandmates who witnessed first-hand his on and offstage antics that eventually led to the splintering of the band and also to his tragic and untimely death in 1971. However there is a big gap in the film between his childhood and his days as a film student at UCLA which would have given the audience and Doors fans a better insight of this talented, yet also troubled, artist who, along with his three closest friends, created a sound that would change rock music forever

ok jim morrison was swept into the music and he died trying to connect and find a way to get closer to it. its not all about drugs. jim morrison was so in touch with art and he wanted to bring it out for everyone else and all the other members of the band knew this.

I was just introduced to the music of the Doors, and as I listened to their greatest hits album, my friend told me a little about the movie. When I found out it was an Oliver Stone movie, I knew I had to see it. I am not a big Val Kilmer fan, but his performance was outstanding! Stone, of course, puts it down! The movie is filled with 60's drug culture, and makes for a truly mind altering experience.

This movie is great! it may not be all factual, though most ofit is, but its such a great movie. Val Kilmer is so good in it. He's excellent as Jim Morrison and i thought no other person could do as good of a job as Val. It gives you a good dark story. If your a Doors fan i say BUY THIS MOVIE!!

This movie was wonderful. It was very informative. It was like reading a book except it was on a screen. Jim Morrison was the greatest poet!

Personally, I'm a big Doors fan. I've read all the books that are in print today, and own all the documentary movies that they have out. I even have this movie. But to tell the truth, I only bought it because it was $7. And I only paid that so I could have it, not because I thought it was worth $7. It wasn't worth the DVD it came on. Now... where do I begin? For one, I spent the whole movie laughing. Not because of Val Kilmer's performance, he made a wonderful Jim. But because of the script that he was given. Jim would never put Pamela in a closet and then set it on fire. Sure they fought alot, but there is no record of that ever happening. Also, when they were hanging out with Andy Warhol and the other Doors left Jim there all alone, that would never have happened. Ray even says so himself in his biography LIGHT MY FIRE. Half that book is dedicated to how big of a "bonehead" Oliver Stone is. So to sum it up, I'm not disappointed with the acting, I disappointed with the script and the story line. It was just so unfactual that it is rediculous. I hope that this isn't the only movie that they make about the Doors because Oliver Stone does so little with all there is in the story that it is really disappointing. If you don't beleive me, just read Ray's biography. I'm pretty sure that he would be happy to tell you himself. *~Justin~*

The life and death of the genuis Jim Morrison begaing the film from his youth,the ups and downs of his relationships,the fame and success of his music carear,through the devastating and infamous death he had.Val Kilmer puts on one of his best performances ever from hours of reading,watching,and studing Morrison's every move and even tone of speech is completlly brillant!Take the time to purchus this movie and experiance the good, the bad, and the ugly with one of the most famous song writers/poets Jim Morrison.

I think this is one of the best movies to ever depict Jim Morrison. Granted there are many who feel that it was a much darker version of the dark star but thats the beauty of it everyone has their own depiction of the Lizard King. while i feel they could have made him a little more fun i feel it captured his appetite for destruction and chaos perfectly.
