When You're Strange Review


OK
Expertly assembled with an array of never-seen footage, this film documents the Doors in a fairly straightforward way, telling their story with remarkable detail but never quite getting beneath the surface.

What makes it interesting is the way DiCillo puts the band's brief five-year career in context with the world around it. By any measurement, 1966 to 1971 were volatile years in America as the flower-power promise of youth was crushed by a series of horrible assassinations and premature deaths, then silenced by a right-wing political and social snap.

The Doors Soundstage Performances Review


Good
When the music's over, turn out the lights. Fortunately, albums and videos about The Doors keep coming and coming, and this 2002 collection of three soundstage performances (all taped for various TV shows) are more must-have highlights for fans of Morrison and co.

Shot in Toronto in 1967, in Northern Europe in 1968, and back in New York in 1969 (for PBS!), we get to see the band at every stage of its career. From crazy hippies swooning in the audience to a bearded and sunglasses-shrouded Morrison crooning "Alabama Song," this is a tight and interesting retrospective packed into only 75 minutes.
