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

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 »
As a fan of film i'm always up for trying any that i haven't seen which have been classified great movies. My friends recommended me this one - and boy was i disappointed! For a start the story IS good. mainly because it was written by Quentin Tarantino (a fine director and writer). But wouldn't it have been a lot better if he had also directed it? In my own personal opinion, i think it would have been.
The acting is good and the choice of actors to play the parts are very good. From reading a synopsis of the story it sounds really interesting, and as a fan of gore, i was up for seeing the most "disturbing and sickening film". Instead i eagerly sat reading to switch the DVD player off, not because i was scared, but because i was annoyed by the weird and odd shots and angles of the apparently "great" Oliver Stone. It was also boring as there wasn't a hint of horror or gore at all!
All i can say is if you're into weird 'arty farty' films where there are weird shots, funny screeching sounds and lots of girls screaming, this might be for u. but if not, you'd be better off watching The Sound of Music. Julie Andrews singings enough to scare anybody!
