When You're Strange is a documentary about the life of The Doors. It is written and directed by Tom DiCillo.[1]

Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek has stated that "This will be the true story of the Doors,"[1][2] and that the film will be "the anti-Oliver Stone,"[1][2] referring to the 1991 film about the group that Stone directed, and which drew quite a bit of criticism from many Doors fans and Morrison intimates for certain departures from the truth in Stone's screenplay.

The documentary first screened at the Sundance Film Festival on January 17, 2009.[3] It received somewhat favorable reviews from that showing, however the narration (by director DiCillo) was singled out by most viewers as very seriously flawed for its monotonic delivery. Due to the rash of complaints about the narration, Johnny Depp was hired to redub it. A few months later, DiCillo pronounced the film "just about locked", and announced that there would be a showing of the new "redux" version. It debuted at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Sunday, June 21, 2009. The completed film was also shown at the London Film Festival on October 16th-18th, 2009. The film is set for release in theaters on April 9, 2010,[4] with a soundtrack release set for March 30, 2010.[5]
