Anyways, I don't know who my pick would be to play the new Jim, all I know is that a new movie should be made and it should focus a lot more on Jim pre-Doors. There's a lot of stories and information about him during those days that are very important in understanding Morrison and would make for good drama. I mean, the guy was funny, nice, but also a little dark and mysterious - I'm not sure that's the right word for it. Something about his existence was tragic, he knew in High School he was going to live hard and fast, or at least he wanted to. It's almost an unplayable part. Stone also got the rest of the band wrong, he made Ray seem like a dorky asshole, Robby some shy and naive pansy, and John just an ungrateful hard-ass. The band should be presented as it actually was, a tight, equal group. Miami should be the climax.
I agree with most of that, but I would like to see equal focus on each of the Doors, how they became a band, their interaction and other influences on their lives. (I guess a docudrama?) I found O. Stone's movie to be entertaining, but I was disappointed that it focused almost entirely on Jim (Well, one side of him, anyway) and what little it showed of the others made them look -- Well, you described it. But for the depiction of Ray, I might have said the movie made him look like a dork. No asshole in it. (Probably what you meant.)
