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.
The misadventures of Mickey and Mallory: outcasts, lovers, and serial killers. They travel across Route 666 conducting psychadelic mass-slaughters not for money, not for revenge, just for kicks. Glorified by the media, the pair become legendary folk heroes; their story told by the single person they leave alive at the scene of each of their slaughters. Written by

Scagnetti's (Tom Sizemore) story about how his mother was killed was based upon a real life incident involving one of America's first mass murderers, Charles Whitman, who did actually shoot people randomly from the University Tower in Austin, Texas, in 1966. See more »
During the prison riots, guards can be seen firing from a security tower with their shotguns, only to have several prisoners overrun the tower. This makes little sense as all guard towers have doors with locks on the inside. Again however, this is coming from reading the film in too factual a manner. The riot is not supposed to be a realistic depiction of such an event. See more »

The end credits are superimposed over a vast amount of stock footage, ranging from the future of Mickey and Mallory, stock A-Bomb tests, childhood photos of Mickey and Mallory, time-lapse footage, scenes from the movie, and so on. See more »
What I found so bizarre about this movie is that this movie itself is guilty of what it accuses the media of doing. Yes, the media irresponsibly glorifies violence, but this movie ended up being the worst offender of them all. Okay, this movie defines the problem, this movie BECOMES the problem, and offers absolutely no suggestion on how to fix the problem, which makes it appear to me that Tauranteno and Stone are just two wise guys sitting on the sidelines taking potshots. Rule One of Satire: Don't be a hypocrite. Also, did anyone NOT see that end coming? A waste of time.
