I find myself more in synch with The Doors these past two weeks. Recently I purchased the Doors tour documentary, Feast of Friends as a Blu-Ray movie option. It is a 40 minute film that centers around The Doors 1968 tour. I watched on my MacBook Pro. I was captivated by the footage of the band members. I especially love “The End” performed live at The Hollywood Bowl.
Funded by the band and directed by Paul Ferrara, one of Morrison’s film-school friends, ‘Feast of Friends’ doesn’t stick to typical rock documentary territory, expanding to focus on interactions with fans, friends and bystanders. The climate of American politics and fashion, circa 1968, is also captured along the way, as ‘Feast of Friends’ veers off the beaten path to tell its story.
Super Duper Alice Cooper” is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere as Alice Cooper, the most outrageous rock star of his generation.
This unique “doc opera, ” a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera goes from the early days of Alice as the frontman for a leading edge rock band in the sixties through the hazy decadence of global celebrity in the seventies and on to his comeback as the glam metal godfather in the eighties.
This is the tale of Alice and Vincent battling for each other’s souls.
