5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rock Film March 5 2014
By David
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've always liked this film, since it first came out and enjoyed the special features where the documentaries delve into Morrison's behaviour and pathology.

Well acted, great music.

I love this 2 disc dvd of the The Doors, 2nd disc has lots of cool details & extras. I think Val does a great job, u can believe he is a singer of a rock band. Imagine for a moment if Ian Astbury(The Cult) took up O. Stones offer to star as Jim!! But overall this a rock music movie that u won't get bored of viewing. So press play and travel back in time to 1966 as The Doors become the worlds 1st dark dangerous rock band while the media played up flower power & summer of love. The Doors flashed a light on the darkess that the real social world was living thru day to day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doors half-open Feb. 22 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Calling this movie "The Doors" is misleading. It would be more accurate to call it "Jim Morrison and Those Other Guys In the Band," since that is how it's presented.

It's always tempting to latch onto a rock legend in these rock biopics, and Oliver Stone clings like a limpet to the ghost of Jim Morrison. Acid-soaked scenery and mysticism are in every scene, but Stone seems content to wallow in the rock'n'roll debauchery rather than get into Morrison's head.

It opens with a voiceover of Jim Morrison's poetry, as we slowly fade into a stalled recording session. Then it flips back to 1949, as Morrison's family drives through the desert. The boy catches a glimpse of several Indians by the road -- and one of them dies as the family leaves.

Then it flips ahead to Morrison's (Val Kilmer) years at college -- he crashes a party for a pretty girl, makes arty films, acid-trips, and devotes himself to poetry. Then his pal Ray Manzarek (Kyle McLachlan) creates a rock band, with Morrison's poetry and voice as the centerpiece. Soon The Doors become a fixture in L.A. -- and then a famed band.

But as the Doors become more famous, Morrison increasingly loses himself in the messianic-Dionysian-rocker role that has been set out for him. He weds a witch-journalist (Katherine Quinlan) but loves his fey girlfriend Pamela (Meg Ryan). And when he outrages the authorities with the threat of public exposure, the spiral starts that will only lead to death.

Stone certainly knew how to evoke the golden ages of rock'n'roll. Lots of sex, kinetic concerts, and bizarre behavior where Morrison jumps up on platforms and screams, "I am the Lizard King! I can do anything!" The whole movie just kind of sweeps you off your feet.

5.0 out of 5 stars RELIVING THE PHYCHADELIC ERA June 21 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I must say Oliver Stone and his company did a great job of recreating the atmosphere of the late 1960s.The film looks like a sixties movie.Val Kilmer was the perfect choice for the role of Jim Morrison.Though some of it was rather exagerrated,like the scene where the band performs on The Ed Sullivan Show.Ed had forbid Jim to say"higher"in the song Light My Fire,and Jim said it with an emphasized expression.I've got the actual episode of The Ed Sullivan Show taped.The real Jim did disobeye Ed by saying"higher",but without the emphasized expression.Meg Ryan does a good portrayal of Pamela Courson too.

3.0 out of 5 stars In between are doors June 3 2008
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Calling this movie "The Doors" is misleading. It would be more accurate to call it "Jim Morrison, His Lovers and Groupies, and Occasionally Those Other Guys In the Band," since that is how it's presented.

It's always tempting to latch onto a rock legend in these rock biopics, and Oliver Stone clings like a limpet to the ghost of Jim Morrison, happily dousing him with the worst kind of glamor. Acid-soaked scenery and mysticism are in every scene, but Stone seems content to wallow in the rock'n'roll debauchery rather than get into Morrison's head.

It opens with a voiceover of Jim Morrison's poetry, as we slowly fade into a stalled recording session. Then it flips back to 1949, as Morrison's family drives through the desert. The boy catches a glimpse of several Indians by the road -- and one of them dies as the family leaves.

Then it flips ahead to Morrison's (Val Kilmer) years at college -- he crashes a party for a pretty girl named Pamela (Meg Ryan) who becomes his longtime lover, makes strange arty films, acid-trips in the desert, and devotes himself to his poetry. Then his pal Ray Manzarek (Kyle McLachlan) creates a rock band, with Morrison's poetry and voice as the centerpiece. Soon The Doors become a fixture in L.A. -- and then a famed band.

But as the Doors become more famous, Morrison increasingly loses himself in the messianic-Dionysian-rocker role that has been set out for him (partly by himself). His fame allows him to do all sorts of weird things. He weds a witch-journalist (Katherine Quinlan) but loves his fey girlfriend Pamela. And when he outrages the authorities with the threat of public exposure, the downward spiral starts that will only lead to death.

Stone certainly knew how to evoke the golden ages of rock'n'roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars as good as Woodstock (or a Rolling Stones video)
I think this film is far better than film critic Roger Ebert,who gives it 2 1/2 stars, believes. It is presented as a realistic representation of the 1960's, of the psychedic era. Read more
