When You're Strange: A Film About the Doors DVD Review

When You're Strange: A Film About the Doors DVD Review



Synopsis: When You re Strange, written and directed by the award-winning Tom DiCillo, is the first feature documentary released on The Doors. Graced by the narration of Johnny Depp, it carries the audience through the journeys of vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore. This 90-minute presentation features never-before-seen rare archival film, pulled from their inception in 1966 to Morrison s passing in 1971. These snapshot scenes of the band s history is as much an intimate experience, as it is revealing. After being featured at the Sundance, Berlin, Deauville, and San Sebastian Film Festivals, music fans who didn t catch this in theaters can now relish in this extraordinary documentary. It celebrates the collaborative power of this illustrious rock quartet and their revolutionary fusion of creativity and thought-provoking rebellion.

Review: We're big fans of the Doors here at the Legion.  They were one of the first rock bands that really got my attention as a kid.   I remember going to see the Doors movie starring Val Kilmer back in the day, it was this great biopic.  Now, we get something even better.  This is an actual documentary about the band.  The narration by Johnny Depp is appropriate, since he's such a counterculture icon.  

The documentary features the story of the band, which doesn't include a lot of new insights, but the amount of new and rare footage that has never before been seen by the public is astounding!  This is an amazing documentary about a classic band.  Its definately a must-see!
