The story of the famous and influential 1960s rock band and its lead singer and composer, Jim Morrison, from his days as a UCLA film student in Los Angeles, to his untimely death in Paris, France at age 27 in 1971.
Mickey Knox and Mallory Wilson aren't your typical lovers - after killing her abusive father, they go on a road trip where, every time they stop somewhere, they kill pretty well everyone around them. They do however leave one person alive at every shootout to tell the story and they soon become a media sensation thanks to sensationalized reporting. Told in a highly visual style. Written by

Looks like we got us a Mexican Standoff.
We've had this day from the beginning, huh, Mickey? Now slide that shotgun over here. Put your hands on your head and your head against the floor!
Or what, you'll wound me? I could blow you in half and you know it.
I never wounded anything in my life. I got you locked right between the eyes, Mickey. I've had you locked from the jump, you phony!

I wouldn't buy this film without renting it. I was only able to watch ten minutes of it and half was on fast forward. Someone here said that he bought it and has watched it 20 times! I dunno. This movie seems sloppy and all over the place. If you want to get the same effect and not be as disappointed as I was, double up on "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer" and "Wild at Heart" (Nicholas Cage and Laura Dern). The cinematography, entertainment, and impact, of those two films is far better than NBK.
