Synopsis

Using footage shot between The Door's 1965 formation and lead singer Jim Morrison's 1971 death, WHEN YOU'RE STRANGE, narrated by Johnny Depp, follows the band from the corridors of UCLA's film school, where band member Ray Manzarek and Morrison met, to the stages of sold-out arenas. It uncovers historic and previously unseen footage of The Doors and provides new insight into the revolutionary impact of the illustrious rock quartet's music and legacy.

  • 5 stars "I had seen the movie on PBS a few weeks ago. Some of the footage seems to come from www.youtube.com, or from The Doors DVD's. But I would watch it again. I have been a Doors fan for quite some time."
  • 4 stars "I'd give this movie a 4.7 out of 5. If you're a Doors fan you'll love this for the new footage, and for the chance to see Jim and the Doors on the big screen again. If you're a doors fan you may have an issue with the lack of detail, and how certain areas of Jim's life aren't discussed more (his death). Overall, great film, I'd recommend it to any Doors fan."
