Movie Reviews

No surprises

"To anyone who has purchased the books, videos, and other DVD releases: There is nothing new to add, outside of interviews with the remainding memebers, the producer of the records, and a couple of authors who have written books on Jim. ALL of the footage that is shown has already been released from "The Doors Are Open", "Live In Europe", "Dance On Fire", and "Live At The Hollywood Bowl". Thats a shame, because there has GOT TO be MORE out there in the vaults !Also, if the interview sessions would have stuck with John, Robbie, Ray, and the producer - it would have been MUCH better...But to hear from the 2 (so called) experts in journalism leaves MUCH to be desired. They should have just stuck with the people who worked CLOSELY with Jim.Although I can never rate a Doors DVD poorly, this one is just passible at best. A HUGE disappointment."

"As some of the previous reviewers have already stated, there isn't a lot of new material here particularily if you've already read the book `No One Here Gets Out Alive' written by Daniel Sugarman and Jerry Hopkins both of whom appear prominently in this 60 minute documentary/tribute to the Lizard King, Jim Morrison. Be that as it may I still found this DVD an enjoyable watch, especially the performances from the Ed Sullivan Show. I'm certain the hardcore Morrison fans will be disappointed but for those new to the Morrison legend, or the casual fan looking for a companion piece to the book by the same name this is a worthy enough item to add to your DVD collection.

My Rating: Nothing definitive here but certainly a good place to start: -3 ½ Stars-."
A bit trite and rehearsed, but interesting

"the remaining members of the doors (i think this was filmed in the 80's) and dubious hanger on danny sugerman are as enthusiastic as ever talking about the mysterious former frontman of the most important band of the 60's. however, one gets the sense that they were coached in some of their dialogue (the expression "jim, who was always on the edge of reality" becomes annoying and even suspicious as each doors member utters it about three times every interview) and we learn absolutely nothing new, as usual, about morrison. his approach to life was frenetic, insane: we knew that already. he was a man with a commitment to authenticity in his art and life: we knew that already. he took a lot of acid and drank too much: we knew that already. miami was the culmination of many difficulties in morrison's personal life and his frustration with the sharp divorce between the effect he intended his music to have and the effect it actually had: we knew that already. he was extremely photogenic: we knew that already. in accordance with nietzsche's idea of the dionysian, he constantly changed his personal appearance and approach to his audience: we knew that already. he was moody, erratic and prone to aberrant behavior:we knew that already. he was very intellectual: WE KNEW THAT ALREADY. and yeah, "the end" was used at the beginning of apocalypse now. a lot of people have seen that movie. perhaps the redeeming quality of the documentary are the clips from the roundhouse show, which blend perfectly with the intense portrait of morrison as 'shaman, not showman' in manzarek's overdone terms. well, it's worth watching just because it's about him i guess."

Even though this DVD has some rare footage of The Doors members in a TV special interview in the 80s (I guess because of the terrible haircuts) buy it only if you are a hardcore fan collector like me. If not, pass on to the The Doors Collection DVD, which contains all of the clips included here uncut."
