The creative chemistry of four brilliant artists -- drummer John Densmore, guitarist Robby Krieger, keyboardist Ray Manzarek and singer Jim Morrison -- made The Doors one of America's most iconic and influential, theatrical and mysterious, thrilling and sometimes frightening rock bands. "When You're Strange" is the first feature documentary to tell their story and uses only original footage shot between their formation in 1965 and Morrison's death in 1971. It chronicles the creation of their six landmark studio albums and follows the band from the corridors of UCLA's film school, where Manzarek and Morrison originally met, onto the stages of their electrifying sold-out performances -- giving time and attention to every one of their groundbreaking, chart topping songs.
