The Lizard King is a bummer in When You're Strange, Tom DiCillo's disastrously inane documentary ode to reptilian rocker Jim Morrison and his mellower bandmates in the Doors. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
The Doors lit rock 'n' roll fires for only 54 months, having formed after Morrison met Manzarek in 1965, when both were UCLA film students. We get a sense of them as bandmates as they hang around backstage or rehearse, garage-band-style. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
A must for Doors fans as the film attempts to disentangle the facts from the myths surrounding the legendary band. Full Review
Noel Murray
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Director Tom DiCillo does his damnedest to make his documentary about The Doors unwatchable, but the subject matter is too compelling--and the vintage footage too electrifying--to be completely worthless. Full Review
Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly
When You're Strange, a documentary history of the Doors directed by Tom DiCillo, is for people like me who can stumble onto the scrappiest Doors video on VH1 at 3 a.m. and sit there, mesmerized. Full Review
