Amazing... No review of this excellent doc yet? It's a very well done and informative documentary... But it does focus on Jim... Since this doc came out, there have been a few more docs that might go a little more in depth... The brand new documentary that just came out "When You're Strange" is probably the BEST doc on this band. "NOHGOA" is done with the cooperation of the 3 surviving Doors, and their long time producer. (This was done in 1981... When everyone was still getting along!) It's got lots of TV show appearances from The Sullivan show and others... And a pretty rare live snippet of Jim's "Celebration of the Lizard" poem/conceptual piece. (Although THAT footage kind of looks and sounds somewhat crappy , like a poor bootleg video,) but because of it's historical value, it's fine. If you're looking for excellent quality live clips of the Doors, I would seek out "Soundstage Performances". But "No One Here" Is a very fine rock & roll doc. If you're a Doors fan, don't miss it.
