The Doors finally getting the documentary treatment

This is old news for you film circuit buffs, but for the first time (shockingly ever) the Doors finally have a documentary. Titled When You're Strange (and you should all be humming the song by now), the film details the band from it's formation to the death of lead singer Jim Morrison.

If that's not enough to excite you, When You're Strange features narration by Johnny Depp (who recently raved about the film) and is produced by Dick Wolf (of Law and Order and Miami Vice fame). Ok, that last one is less appealing, but my motto is you always need two extra reasons and director Tom DiCillo doesn't really cut it on the excitement meter.

But why am I trying to persuade you? You should be clamoring to see this. Don't believe me, head to the film's website to see a trailer for yourself. In the meantime I'm going to go wait in line for the April 9th release date.
