Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review five new movies and recommend several videos. They have a major quarrel over Oliver Stone's ambitious rock biopic, The Doors (1991). Both agree it's brilliantly made and features an uncanny performance from Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison, but Ebert found the experience to be relentlessly depressing and can't recommend it. Siskel briefly reviews three home videos: The Doors: Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1987), The Doors: Live in Europe 1968 (1991) and The Doors: Dance on Fire (1985).
