I have no affiliation with this film whatsoever, but I thought I'd get the word out to any Morrison fans out there. You might be interested in following the progress of "Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes of Age."

Hi Texasky! I've pretty much abandoned my idea of creating a site. I dunno, maybe I'll rethink it. (Heavy sigh)

Anyway, I really enjoy the chemistry and banter between some of the longtime members on the old board. Pedro is an ace archeologist of all things Doors, and your stories are priceless! Keep them coming!!!

Hi there echorec,

Thank you so much for your compliment. Arrrggggg, I really wish you could register onto the Doors Message Board. Also other people who wish to participate on the board also cannot get in. The mods want it all right here though but it is set up differently. Are you still getting your own site?

Thanks

Agreed, Texasky!

"we’re all in the cosmic movie"

P.S. Tex you're an absolute treasure over on the old forum! Wish I could join in!

I am not affiliated with this film either but I truly feel this will be one of the most significant films brought to light on who Jim really was. If everyone just donated something, no matter how small, this film can come to fruition.

Comments from the filmmakers on laist.com:

"We think the story of the Doors has been told countless times," Jeff Finn said, "but nuanced Morrison truths remain covered up by myths, distortions, and lies. Ideally, Before the End will function as a counterpoint to the negative knee-jerk reactions people have toward Jim, which seem based on certain portrayals that have been etched in stone."

Jeff Finn added, "We're neither deifying nor demonizing Morrison. We're trying to reveal his humanity, especially as it applies to his formative years. Making this documentary feels akin to a murder mystery, like who killed Jim Morrison by character assassination? I guess you could say we're also trying to avenge Jim in a sense."

I am so glad this was brought up! If everyone would contribute to this documentary about Jim then it will come to fruition. You can donate as little as $ 5.00 and go all the way up into $ 10,000.00. It has to be all in there by the end of July. The film makers need $ 50,000.00 to make this a reality. The people that are interviewed are Jim's family members and the circle of friends who knew Jim before he became well known. This should be a jewel of a film.
