Pretty brave of you to state so, seeing as how this crowd hates the movie.
So, didn't go to college... what entheogenics plants? I'm guessin' you'll be gone,

I guess we are all entitled to an opinion, we should all have the freedom to speak our truth, no matter what it is, I think Jim would agree with this, :-)

The Oliver Stone film was a dramatisation of the events in the history of Jim Morrison while with the musical group The Doors, in which he was a member. There have been liberties taken in the film for entertainment value and dramatic impact as I understand it, however most of the content of film is based on actual events that occurred during their heyday.

Depending on your perspective, is whether or not you will have a negative, indifferent or positive view of Jim Morrison after watching the film. For me, Although Morrison was portrayed as pretentious and narcissistic, he was also portrayed as vulnerable, intelligent and insightful. So in summery, for me anyway, Stone did present Morrison as a flawed human being, which is why I resonate with his interpretation of Jim so well. :-)

In Topic: The Doors Documentary

I purchased this much anticipated documentary and “claimed” anti-Oliver Stone film on DVD over 12 months ago. It has since sat on my DVD shelf collecting dust, as I now know why some of the footage never saw the light of day. Although many people and resources were collected and collated to produce “When you’re Strange” I think it failed miserably to hit the mark, especially with contemporary conscious audiences. The reasons are many and varied; although I tend to believe that it failed to resonate with fans on a personal level, and kept them at a distance from emotionally bonding with the content of the film. The presentation of imagery we have seen ad finitum and ad nauseum, and the much hyped new stuff, was just that, “much hyped”. The documentary was mono-tone and boring, and when inquisitive minds ask me what to read and watch to get a glimpse of Jim Morrison and the Doors, I tell them read NHGOA, Riders on the Storm, and watch “The Doors” by Oliver Stone, has some inaccuracies, but a great enduring tribute.
