New documentary promises ‘true story’ of The Doors
Written and directed by Tom DiCillo, When You’re Strange utilises a wealth of previously unseen footage to chart the band’s beginnings at UCLA’s film school through to frontman Jim Morrison’s mysterious death in 1971.
Describing the movie to US music-biz mag Billboard earlier this year, Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek said it was “the anti-Oliver Stone,” in reference to the 1991 film The Doors.
“This will be the true story of The Doors,” Manzarek added.
Rhino will release a soundtrack to When You’re Strange next summer.
