When You’re Strange

A film about The Doors

A fantastic feature documentary film (selected by every major film festival there is), you don’t need to be a fan of The Doors to love When You’re Strange, narrated by Johnny Depp. Great style, great quotes, great footage and great music I enjoyed watching this from start to finish and recommend it to anyone who is intrigued by the youth movement of the sixties.

My favourite Jim Morrison quote of the film: 

“I’ve noticed that when people are joking they’re actually dead serious and when they’re dead serious it’s usually pretty funny.”

Morrison is captivating and each of his band mates have a strong presence about them. The film features unseen footage of Morrison at his best and at his worst– which was very bad. You go back and forth wondering how brilliant or not brilliant Jim Morrison was, who died at the age of 27 in his Paris apartment. Watch with no expectations because Morrison is completely unpredictable.

Released in UK cinemas July 2nd
