The documentary style film about the Doors is a look into the lives of what fame was like on the road for the mega rock stars. It has previously seen footage as well some rare, unseen clips. There are some real gems for Morrison and Doors fans here. Narrated by Johnny Depp the story is told of how the band came together, how Jim manifested his own background, the drugs, the trips, the fame, the good, bad and dark times. It holds the notion that this one off front man was a new breed of rock star. Not only did he have the look, the presence and charisma but also the intelligence to use this to his advantage which turned out dangerous at times.

There are some great clips compiled in this film. Alighting from airplane each member walks down the stairs and up to a camera, they are asked to say there name and occupation. Jim is last and he finds it amusing and doesn’t give an answer.

There is footage of Jim mingling with fans before a concert during which the Doors supported The Who. He is relaxed and inquisitive to fans as he flicks through a programme magazine.

Its strikes me as crazy that these guys were so young and actually the biggest and most exciting band in the world. I couldn’t imagine what that must have felt like. Something of true rarity. This enforces that the age of the rock star is truly deceased for there are no legends that walk among us that hold there own along side the likes of the Door or any other band from that era.

Included in the film is restored footage of Morrison’s short film HWY in which a youthful Morrison stars. The scenes are of Jim driving a Ford Mustang along a highway in the desert, there’s an eeriness and uneasiness about it all. The documentary opens with this footage and returns to it throughout the film.

 A must see for all music fans.
