walk the line

All I ask for is a good movie. I watch a fair amount of stuff and more often than not, I'm disappointed with what I see. But, not this time. What a great story this was! I've always been a fan of Johnny Cash (he is the Man in Black, after all), but I think I would've liked this movie even if that was not the case. Besides the interesting story line, the performances from Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon were outstanding. Who knew they could sing? I'm not familiar with June Carter Cash's work, but Phoenix did a great job emulating Johnny Cash's style.

While I don't really have a favorite genre of films (I probably like thrillers the most, but I'll watch anything if it's supposed to be good), biopics are pretty low on my list (maybe it's because there are less of them than other types of films). But, it just goes to show--if you make a good movie, you make a good movie--it doesn't matter what it's about.

Definitely worth watching.
