I recently reviewed Oliver Stone’s psychedelic biopic of seminal sixties band The Doors for Flick Feast. The controversial depiction of Morrison as an self-aggrandising egomaniac was questioned by some with certain members of the band publicly rebuking Stone’s film upon it’s release. Nevertheless, if you can ignore any questions of accuracy and focus instead on the great sense of time and place that Stone manages to capture, there is still a lot to enjoy in this film. It’s far from perfect, but it’s visually impressive and the soundtrack, which is of course dominated by the band themselves, is first rate.
