Uncovers historic and previously unseen footage of the illustrious rock quartet and provides new insight into the revolutionary impact of its music and legacy. "They say if you remember the '60s you weren’t there," said producer Dick Wolf. "I can state definitively that one of the things I do remember is buying THE DOORS' first album the day it came out and then listening to it about ten or twelve times in a row. Both sides. Every song... This movie is the story of the band but it is also an insight into a moment in time that will never be repeated." Said Johnny Depp (who narrated the film), "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." "HYPNOTIC!" Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
