One of the greatest concert films - a mesmerizing performance.
11 January 2015 | by grantssSee all my reviews

One of the greatest concert films - a mesmerizing performance.

A truly brilliant concert, expertly captured on film. The Doors' performances were notorious for Jim Morrison being drunk and/or stoned, and behaving in erratic, even provocative, fashion. Here he absolutely captivates the audience with a blend of theatrics, lyrics and cool calm menace. He is in control of everything and everyone throughout.

Backing the incredible stage presence of Morrison is some musicianship of the highest order. The camera and microphones capture well the sheer brilliance of Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore. While Morrison supplies the darkness and thought, the other three provide the light, craft and rock.

There's a sense of something big, magnificent and important in progress all the way through. This is as much a visual experience as an audio one - you can't look away.
