'The Doors' (1991)
Oliver Stone's bloated, excessive biopic of Jim Morrison (Val Kilmer) and the Doors divided critics and audiences upon its release, and continues to do so twenty years later. In exploring Morrison's brief but influential career as a pre-punk singer-poet, Stone and his cast often go so far over the top that, if the film were about any other band, the results would be unwatchable. Instead, it's a fascinating mess about one of rock's most fascinating eras.
