For a while, the obviousness and flat-out vulgarity are sort of entertaining, and it might be possible to enjoy the movie as a camp classic if you could ignore the mean-spiritedness that keeps breaking through.

Hysteria, however skillfully maintained, should never be mistaken for art -- a caution that applies equally to Stone and his subject.

While it has its moments, taken by itself, The Doors amounts to little more than an impressionistic look at a boy and his death wish.

Insidiously funny and remarkably truthful about the psychedelic rock scene in the late 1960.

The whole movie is white hot, lapped in honeyed golds, evilly blue and black or drenched in those swoony, fiery reds. The Doors blasts your ears and scorches your eyes.

Both a vibrant tribute to rock cult figure Jim Morrison and to the decade in which he flourished.

Oliver Stone's The Doors is a grandiose, highly kinetic, film that flourishes in its own excess.

Morrison is played with uncanny authenticity by Val Kilmer. The performance is utterly convincing without being terribly illuminating.

The flaw in the film is its unrelenting tone of bombast. It never gives you a break. You ache for a moment of quietude, an escape from the lizard king's cranium.

The much-anticipated film is a psychedelic circus that turns into the worst nightmare of a bad trip. It`s an experience.
