When You're Strange Interview

The Sundance Film Festival is currently going on in Park City, Utah. I so wish I was there, not only to see the amazing films but also because it is currently 10-15 degrees warmer than the South. Park City, Utah (ski town, has snow on ground) is warmer than the South (no snow, just shivering people). Go figure.

So, remaining inside with my furry slippers, I surfed the web to find this little gem. It's a Sundance Channel interview for the documentary, "When You're Strange" which premiered at Sundance last Saturday night.

The interview includes writer/director Tom DiCillo and the Doors members Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger. I love how Tom speaks of the film's title and how it relates to humankind. I love how Ray talks about Jim Morrison as if he is still an active presence in their lives. I love how Robby, though admittedly wary at first, compliments the film's honest portrayal of the Doors more than previous sources. Let's just say in short: I love this interview.

I'm hoping that "When You're Strange" will be in theatres later in 2009. Regardless of opening date, I will be first in line to buy a ticket because it's sure to be mesmerizing.
