When you are strange is the best video biography of the Doors. Tom Di Cillo, the author of "Johnny Suede" (Brad Pitt) is a very talented film maker. Dealing with the story of the most important american rock band, here he is very respectful of the myth, may be too much. A honest and engaging movie but he could dare something more. Wonderful music and some cuts from "HWY", the film made in the sixties by Jim Morrison and his friends.
