  1. When You're Strange, a documentary history of the Doors directed by Tom DiCillo, is for people like me who can stumble onto the scrappiest Doors video on VH1 at 3 a.m. and sit there, mesmerized.

    An excellent reflection of Morrison and the Doors. Johnny Depp's excellent narration makes you listen to every word as we roll through this entertaining documentary. Full Review »
