Storyline

The Doors didn't simply "break on through" in the late 1960s. Led by rock poet and frontman Jim Morrison, they exploded onto the music scene. Over four years, they provided the soundtrack to a counterculture movement that galvanized young Americans and terrified adults. But by 1970 Morrison's life was spiraling, and their sixth studio album, "L.A. Woman," was in danger of being scrapped. Take an in-depth look at the making of this seminal record, one of the band's greatest releases, and the final work of rock's legendary Rider on the Storm. Written by spokat33

Not Horrible, BUT.......
5 September 2019 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

It's not a bad doc, however there is a significant amount of useless filler. Ray is the best of the film.

Never was all that into The Doors, but this is not a horrible flick over all
