Oliver Stone focuses mainly on the history of The Doors and Jim Morrison in this commentary, and while he's talkative for most of the movie, there are other times when he won't say anything for 30 seconds, will throw out a short fact, and then go quiet for the next minute.

Some of the more interesting bits in the commentary are Stone talking about the reactions of the real people depicted in the movie (or others who were close to Morrison) to the film. Also interesting is when he goes into his personal experiences in hearing The Doors for the first time while he was in Vietnam. There is also the recurring appearance of Death throughout the film which he points out, and which I completely missed the first time I watched the movie. However, most of the commentary seemed to be discussions about the history of the band, which, while informative, wasn't as interesting as the parts of the commentary which were more specific to this movie.
