TV Review: Masterpiece Mystery, "Sherlock"

TV Review: "When You're Strange: A Film About the Doors" | Popdose


The first feature length documentary on The Doors, When You’re Strange: A Film About the Doors, debut on PBS American Masters tonight. My review has been posted to Popdose:

“You probably decided whether you are going to watch the latest installment of the great PBS series
American Masters tonight when you saw the title. Because when it comes to the Doors, opinion is most definitely divided. You either love the Doors, and think that they were one of the most important bands of the ’60s, or you dismiss them as overrated, and deride their lack of musicianship. I fall into the former category, but even here at Popdose some of my colleagues are in the latter. That’s fine. It’s differences in musical taste that make rock and roll the subject of endless discussions.”
