Overview

The Doors were very much a band of their time, a group whose music reflected the social and political upheaval of the late '60s and early '70s, and yet their appeal has endured thanks to the hypnotic music of guitarist Robby Krieger, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and drummer John Densmore as well as the magisterial power of lead vocalist and lyricist Jim Morrison. The group's moment in the spotlight was short -- their debut album was released in early 1967, and Morrison would die in Paris in the summer of 1971 -- but their music and image continues to fascinate music fans, and filmmaker Tom DiCillo explores the Doors and their times in the documentary When You're Strange. Featuring rare footage from the archives of Paul Ferrara, a filmmaker who struck up a friendship with Morrison when they were both attending UCLA, When You're Strange also includes excerpts from HWY: An American Pastoral, a short film Morrison directed in 1969. When You're Strange was an official selection at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

When you're Strange shows the turbulent period from 1965-1971 when the Doors were formed until the death of Jim Morrison. Tom DeCillo does a great job of using footage from news/media,concert and some of Morrison's own movie he had produced in the late 60's. Narrated by Johnny Depp, who sounds eerily similar to Morrison himself, all make this a great tribute to one of the influential bands of the time. If you're a Doors fan, this DVD is a must have item.
