Movie Reviews

From the Outside,and Inside,Story Behind the Doors+
Magickal Merlin | Death Valley-SoCal | 05/20/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can see why some people may not like this documentary.It's dry and British.Yet,it's a wonderful look at what the critics,then and now,think about their music.In 1971,the psychedelic tide had ebbed out.And left many bands ,high and dry.The Doors' music lives on and is still able to find new listeners,generation after generation.This documentary is slow and almost scientific in its approach to explain the 'Doors' influence.If you are a die-hard fan,you'll love this DVD.If you wanted a lot of music,you'll be disappointed here.The Doors were one of the few bands,that was able to ride the vibe and survive,with its unique Blues/Jazz/Hard rock sound.The lyrics were poetic and erudite.And still perfect for Top 40 radio.Oliver Stone's film was entertaining,yet only about thirty percent accurate.And most friends of Jimbo agree that the Lizard King would not have been happy with the film.This documentary also closes with the ambiguity of Morrison's death.Almost all agree his health was poor,so his death was not that big of a shock.But,his Parisian friends felt his health and mood was improving.I feel Morrison was set-up,perhaps by the CIA.Jim's father was a big-wig in the navy,and serving in Vietnam,during the Doors successful launch.Ironically,the Doors were the most popular radio music,over the GI air-waves.Jim having felt distant from his parents,claimed they were even 'dead'.Jim's death has always been shrouded in mystery.I think a pausible story is that the CIA,were closing in on Jim and Pamela Courson.Jim's soul-mate and anima gemella,Pamela,operated a successful L.A. fashion shoppe.While at the Left Bank,Pam sent Jim to pick up some 'packages' for her,at the Rock-n-Roll Circus discotheque.When Jim arrived he encountered the two drug couriers was soundly roughed-up by the two dark-clothed dudes and left in the loo.Jim was helped out,by fellow clubbers, and taken back to his flat.They put him in the bath-tub.And Pamela was then faced with a huge dilemma.If she called the police,her involvement with the drug-dealers would be fully exposed.Whether quick medical attention would have revived him is unknown.Jim expired in the tub,and she needed to have the body quickly interned,before the police became suspicious of 'foul-play' and 'drug-connections'.She was able to have the death ruled 'natural',within two days.Most believed it because of Morrison's depression, bloated frame and declined state of health.This documentary doesn't mention this version,yet does leave the window open to various possiblities of his final where-abouts.This documentary is a must for every true fan of the 'Doors'."
