If one is to make a movie about the myth and legend that was Johnny Cash there could have been a hell of a lot worse choices that Joaquin Phoenix who maybe doesn't look like the man but seem to channel the same demons that Cash had - and he suits black. Of course it is impossible to tell the whole uncut truth, but at least this film doesn't show him as a glorified saint and make good use of music so I'm happy.
I struggle to find words for this film, I just think it's fucking brilliant and Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash is something I never knew I needed so much. I'm a cold bitch and this film has me crying from start to finish every time I watch it. All hail a biopic done well.
