I'm not sure how many of you guys are big fans of the rock band The Doors, but there is a documentary about them coming out this year. Tom DiCillo (director of Double Whammy and Delirious) made a feature about The Doors called When You're Strange that premiered at Sundance. It's finally hitting theaters in April and an official trailer has arrived via the film's official website. The documentary uncovers historic, previously unseen footage from the illustrious rock quartet and provides new insight into the revolutionary impact of their music and legacy. It's narrated by Johnny Depp, which is an added bonus. Check it out!
There are only four reviews of this on Rotten Tomatoes so far, mostly negative, but it doesn't look that bad.
Watch the trailer for Tom DiCillo's When You're Strange:
"Tom DiCillo's When You're Strange is a meticulously crafted, exhilarating ode to one of music's greatest ensembles, The Doors. Watching the hypnotic, hitherto, unreleased footage of Jim, John, Ray and Robby, I felt like I experienced it all through their eyes… As a rock n' roll documentary, or any kind of documentary for that matter, it simply doesn't get any better than this. What an honor to have been involved. I am as proud of this as anything I have ever done." -Johnny Depp (This quote was found on the official website.)
When You're Strange is both written and directed by Tom DiCillo, of mostly indies like Johnny Suede, The Real Blonde, Double Whammy and Delirious previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival a few years back. Rhino Entertainment is bringing When You're Strange to limited theaters on April 9th.
