The Ultimate Story of Sex, Drugs & Rock 'N' Roll
The story of the famous and influential 1960's rock band and its lead singer and composer, Jim Morrison.
This may actually be a perfect cinematic representation of the music of The Doors: overlong, repetitious, and centered around and unlikable asshole spouting junior high level poetry.
A standard biopic enlivened by its music and leading performance, Olive Stone's "The Doors" entertains but adds little to the myth of the 1960s rock band and its Dionysian leading man. Following the band as its rises from club-playing outfit to something much bigger, the film travels on requisite plot beats as its spends most of its time focusing on Jim Morrison. Morrison, indeed, makes for an interesting character, but the film misses opportunities get under his skin or to explore more of the characters surrounding him.
Beginning with a childhood moment before leaping into the decade that would create the titular rock band, "The Doors" traces Jim Morrison's journey from fledgling artist to full-fledged rock god. The story follows…
Oliver Stone is still up among my favorite directors. He had a purple patch from the mid-eighties to the mid-nineties when he gave us some terrific films that garnered both critical and commercial success that unfortunately he hasn't seen much of lately. This biopic of The Doors, or more accurately that of its mercurial front-man Jim Morrison divided the critics once again, but for me remains one of his finest celluloid treats.
Platoon, Wall Street, Born On The Fourth Of July, The Doors, JFK. That's a career right there. 31 Oscar Nominations for his own films to go with his screenwriting credits on the likes of Midnight Express and Scarface say it all. This film however was somehow a box…
Oliver Stone's trippy look at the life and times of one of the world's most legendary bands was almost ignored at the cinema back in 1991. Maybe it came out at the wrong time or was just too light-weight for some audiences,who knows. It is however a stunning piece of film-making. I know I'm biased as I'm a huge Doors fan and with Val Kilmer's performance as the "Lizard King" strikingly authentic,I thought this was a worthy biopic of a complex character.
The film may well be called "The Doors",and although the other members brought their own spice to the mix of the band,Jim Morrison was The Doors. His unique blend of bohemian artistry and poetic license brought the counter-culture…
How a Bloated, Drunk, Greasy Lunatic Captured the Body of Val Kilmer and Has Remained Within Him Until This Very Day
"I am the Lizard King. I can do anything."- Jim Morrison
I was first introduced to The Doors (the band) a few years ago. It wasn't until a few months ago that I really started to listen to them though. Since that time I've been a bit obsessed with them and they're pretty much all I've been listening to. As I'm writing this I'm wearing my Doors shirt and listening to them. I don't really have a favorite band, but currently it's The Doors. I love more than just their music though, I also love reading their history. So naturally I wanted to watch Oliver Stone's biopic about the band.
While the film isn't entirely accurate in its portrayal of…
ok. now I have endured half of the film and I still do not get it. None of it. Couple of nice tunes but the rest.... what was the fuss all about? with regard the film and the band to begin with..... not sure I can stay up for the rest of it.......
The few Oliver Stone joints I've seen have certainly been visually interesting. 'The Doors' is one giant drunken and drug induced haze. The pictures are murky and downright baffling sometimes. The only problem is it follows a bunch of really miserable characters for way too long of a run time.
Val Kilmer was spot on as Jim Morrison. The rest of this movie is a booze-fuelled, drug-induced sex romp that I could've done without. Entirely too long and frankly just boring.
Oliver Stone's least bad movie?
The movie is pleasant and it puts you in the mood of the 60's. The soundtrack is excelent. I love Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison, I didn't know that jim was such an asshole i don't know if I hate him or I love him. I have another vision of the doors now.
No, it's not very accurate. Naysayers such as The Doors' Ray Manzarek are justified in calling out Stone for deviating from history. However, this is not a documentary, it's a dramatization. I don't mind that Stone changes things and sometimes completely makes shit up. Stone completely nails the look, feel, and spirit of the band and of the late 1960s (as far as I can tell, not having been alive). I love this movie and I feel it does the band justice and perfectly captures the mystique (if not the real person, but let's face it; the mystique is more interesting) of Jim Morrison.
The Doors, like its subject matter, is often obnoxious to the point of turning you off just as it reveals glimpses of a deeper truth before merrily returning to its pretentious roots.
Thank you Oliver Stone.
Throw up. Barf. Upchuck. Spew. Blow chunks. Ralph. Retch. Vomit. Technicolor yawn. Laugh at the carpet.
