Oliver Stone recreates the sites and sounds of the sixties quite well, and Kilmer seems to be Jim Morrison, but we don't learn much about Morrison. Most of his life was a real bummer, to quote a certain hippie I know, and is a better musician than he is as a human. Still, if you want to experience life the Jim Morrison way, you should see this movie.
One final thing. I have failed to mention some other good performances by the supporting cast, that are overshadowed by Kilmer's performance. Ryan is perky as Jim's flaky girlfriend Pam. Kyle Maclachlan as Ray Manzarek, the man who should be known as the real founder of The Doors, and Kathleen Quinlan as a bizarre reporter, who Jim gets emotionally involved with. Perhaps you should see the film for the interesting cast and music. Otherwise, it's not worth shelling out $6.50 at the movie theater or $4.00 on video.
