DOORS Special DVD  $24.95 


Overview: Val Kilmer stars as Jim Morrison in Oliver Stones electrifying profile of the Doors, which takes the group from its inception to its demise with the death of the Lizard King in a Paris hotel room in 1971. In the early days of the groups formation, Morrison is at his most benign; hes just a guy hanging out at the beach writing poetry. But soon the Doors fame begins to spread--with Morrison as the focus of attention. Capable of an eerily correct vocal imitation of Morrison, Kilmer makes manifest the talent and charisma, as well as the confusion and despair, of the complex man who was the focal point of the group. As Morrissons drug consumption and erratic behavior increase exponentially, the rest of the band--Ray Manzarek (Kyle McLachalan), John Densmore (Kevin Dillon), and Robby Krieger (Frank Whaley)--begins to grow tired of his late arrivals, the increasing number of cancellations, and the drunken recording sessions requiring infinite retakes. But no one can help Morrison as he spirals downward into an inferno of drugs, alcohol, public obscenity, and depression, bringing the music to an untimely close.

Stones intimate familiarity with SoCal in the 1960s provides the film with a high degree of surface verisimilitude, though the film is as much a tribute to the enduring power of the Doors music as it is a cautionary tale about the perils of both celebrity and substance abuse.

Actors: Meg Ryan, Val Kilmer. Director: Oliver Stone.
