    Maybe it was fun to bathe in decadence back then. But this is no time to wallow in that mire.

Val Kilmer does a fantastic job as Jim Morrison, with spot on appearance and close to perfect vocals. This movie is deep and psychedelic that should keep the hardcore rock and roll fan interested throughout. This movie has a style unlike any other biopic. Full Review »
