When You’re Strange

Unhappy with what Oliver Stone did to Jim Morrison and the Doors in his 1991 biopic? Here's the doc for you. Director Tom DiCillo avails himself of archival footage as Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore leave their musical mark on the 1960s. Clips from a film Morrison made of himself in the desert are alone worth the price of admission. Since the movie was first shown at Sundance in 2009, DiCillo (Living in Oblivion) has tightened the pace and brought on Johnny Depp to replace him as narrator. Good choices. New fans and old will find the experience hypnotic.
