This movie lit my fire.

"When You're Strange," a documentary about the doors, was screened Friday night and it was unreal. If you're a Doors fan, you don't know WHAT you're in store for. If you like good filmmaking, then strap on your seat belt. Did you know that "Light My Fire" was the first song that Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger ever wrote? Did you know that Jim Morrison wrote "Moonlight Drive" while living on a friend's roof, long before The Doors were ever started? Did you know that Jim Morrison's girlfriend, Pamela, sat on Mick Jagger's lap during the band's infamous Hollywood Bowl show? It's all in the film, along with footage from a movie Morrison made in the California desert. The narration was a little overwritten. But all in all - Great Stuff. AND it's narrated by Johnny Depp.

Here is the filmmaker, Tom DiCillo, at a q and a following the film.
