Atmospheric, but incredibly agonizing!

"I believe in a long prolonged derangement of the senses to attain the unknown... Although I live in the subconscious, our pale reason hides the infinite from us."

Acclaimed and controversial director Oliver Stone has yet again tackled heavy subject matter and trodden on dangerous ground with this rock biopic. The Doors is a film that takes a look at the band of the same name and th... read more

"Ray Manzarek turned down Stone's many requests to help in the movie. Manzarek has since said that the movie is a horrible account of the history of the band." --FROM Internet Movie Database trivia

Gee, I wish he had participated.

Oliver Stone's "The Doors" is a film that loves "the lizard king's" stage presence. And the poetic a... read more

“On his first lesser outing as director, Oliver Stone's disjointed biographical music film centres on the rise and fall of The Doors, one of the more successful genre-bursting rock bands of the 1960s, but in actuality targets their larger-than-life frontman, Jim Morrison, and therein lies the first of many missteps in the attempt to maximise on such a wealth of material. An opportunity wasted, in my opinion, whereby subtlety falls victim to the pursuit of pretentious self-indulgence and bombastic flair tailored for the MTV generation. Stylistically staid and historically inaccurate, Jim Morrison's early life is barely explored, with Val Kilmer's showy, disconnected performance failing to capture any component of his true personality. Instead of the sensitive poet he probably was, Jim Morris” read more

"Re-watch - Dec. 8th December 8, 2018, would have been Jim's 75th birthday so I figured I would revisit The Doors in his honor. Kilmer really disappears into character as Morrison and comes as close as possible to resurrecting Jim. It's great. The movie does a great job of capturing the energy of The Doors and the fact they were often kind of a circus, not to mention a trainwreck whenever Jim went off the rails. Morrison could be an asshole, but also charming, and that's all present. My proble"

A good movie

“To be honest, even though this movie doesnโ€™t have a really stellar reputation, I always had a weak spot for ย the damned thing and it is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. The point is that, when this movie was released, I was just about 12 years old and there was this huge revival around The Doors (in fact, mostly thanks to this flick). Like many other teenagers at the time, my sister and I fell in love with this music and, therefore I thought at the time that this movie was just awesome. Of course, since then I sobered up and I came to realize that this movie was not so amazing. The main issue, in my opinion, is that Oliver Stone never really figured out what he should really do with Jim Morrison. Was he a pitiful drug-addict, a circus act or a misunderstood genius? Still, in spite” read more
