Watch The Doors: When You're Strange - Alternative Versions.
I attended a special screening of the music documentary "When You're
Strange: A Film about The Doors" at the 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival.
This was my 18th screening here and the first to be completely sold
Writer/director Tom DiCillo was able to gain access to original footage
shot from 1966-71 by Paul Ferrara, a UCLA Film School buddy of
flamboyant lead singer Jim Morrison. Those old, grainy films are all
that were needed to make this stunning documentary -- no modern-day or
additional footage was shot.
The dramatic voice-over was provided by Johnny Depp who, in a statement
from DiCillo read prior to the screening, was the one person the
filmmakers felt qualified to narrate the movie. It had to be someone
with a passion for the music of The Doors, and Depp fit the bill.
With the assistance of the remaining living members, particularly band
co-founder and keyboardist Ray Manzarek (who sat in front of me), the
film is destined to be the definitive chronicle of the band's history.
We finally discover the shocking truth behind the curious myths -- did
Morrison really expose his genitals at that infamous Florida concert?
Did he fake his own death? "When You're Strange" separates fact from
fiction and puts to rest the many rumors surrounding the manic life and
untimely death of Jim Morrison. The heretofore secret details behind
the making of each amazing album (one took 11 months, another took less
than a week) are mind-boggling. Naturally, there's plenty of music.
Tons of it.
Like all music docs, the degree to which one connects with the film is
directly proportional to one's familiarity with the music and/or
artists featured in the production. This certainly applies here. Like
some of the thrilling music documentaries I've seen at festivals in the
past couple of years ("The U.S. vs. John Lennon," "Dixie Chicks: Shut
Up and Sing," "The Wrecking Crew," "Kurt Cobain About a Son"), I put
"When You're Strange" right at the top of my list. I was blown away.
However, while I walked away feeling that this was an absolutely
brilliant film, I have to give it a qualified thumbs up if only because
there is no doubt many simply won't have the emotional response that I
did. But, for fans of this music, "When You're Strange" is absolutely a
