Not enough of the doors themselves
13 February 2020 | by kennetharthurfrenchSee all my reviews

You'd think a movie title with The Doors in the title would feature...I dunno...the Doors. I get that the director and the surviving members wanted to document this concert, but more clips of the actual band performing would have made it a lot better. Instead, we get very brief snippets of them playing, while most of the movie is other people doing Doors songs with Robby Krieger (and sometimes John Densmore). The worst moment is when singer Andrew Watt tries to out-do Jim Morrison (an impossible task), writhing and grunting before crowd-surfing -- an absolute embarrassment. And much as I love the band X, there was no need for them to perform one of their own songs ("Nausea") after their cover of "Soul Kitchen." The film had its moments and I'm not sorry I saw it, but it could have been so much more.
