The Doors. Live at the Hollywood Bowl

Director Ray Manzarek
United States / 71 min. / 2012 / English

1968, the band’s peak, paints this extraordinary demonstration of rock’n’roll like one of the fine arts. An hour of the most transcendent live sound every played. “The End” and “Light My Fire”, among fourteen other smashers (some unreleased).




The Doors shortest album (Live at the Hollywood Bowl) is transformed, thanks to it’s director Ray Manzarek (the keyboardist), into an hour of the most meaningful and transcending rock ever played. Four cameras and sixteen tracks bequeath the quality and power that other films about the band lack. But what makes The Doors: Live at the Hollywood Bowl so relevant is of course the band itself. The band of Jim Morrison, Robbie Krieger, John Densmore and Manzarek show what they were really made of in 1968; a band in complete control of its faculties and not afraid to dive into extensive interludes of freaky jazz sections during the set, with a singer who had a greater sense of humour then that for which he is credited and a set list that no other band (American or otherwise) could rival. “The End”, “Light My Fire”, “When the Music's Over”, "The Unknown Soldier", “Backdoor Man” and so on make up fourteen songs (some of which have never appeared on an album), in a overwhelming revelation of rock as one of the fine arts.
