I just watched it again.


I really like this film about Johnny Cash. J. Phoenix did a great job of singing along with Reese. Phoenix had Cash's mannerisms down perfectly including how he held the guitar. At first I thought they dubbed in Cash's voice but in the credits it stated that Phoenix did the singing.

Yeah, it is a great film and both Phoenix and Witherspoon were fantastic.

I saw this movie 2 or 3 times over the years...

But I hadnt seen it in probably 7 years.

after watching Joker when it came out, I was amazing by Joaquin....

I wanted to rewatch Walk The Line again....

I must say I just watched this last month again, and Lord, I was BLOWN away....First its a great movie, but Joaquin was astonishing....He absolutely deserved an Oscar...


amazing I didnt see just how great the movie and his performance was earlier, but I DO NOW

Indeed.

Reese Witherspoon also sang. She took months of singing classes and studied the shit out of June Carter to nail her personality and cadence. She earned that Academy Award.

June once studied acting with Elvis in NY in the 50's.
