Crop And Save
I got into acting as a small kid when i I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar. To keep from being called a cookie thief, I pretended to be the scion of the Corleone Family. I knew my mom would never cross a Corleone. Well, she did once many years later and now she sleeps with Don Vito. She used to sleep with the fishes, but got tired of then menage a trois with Lucca. C'est la guerre,
Walk the Line (2005)
Johnny would be proud.
Hello, I'm Johnny Cash.
I've seen a lot of singer biopics: all the way from the Buddy Holly Story to Coal Miner's Daughter. This one can't quite make it to Coal Miner, but it's light years ahead of Buddy. I read a review today that said that Joaquin was too short and Reese was too pretty to play Johnny and June. The reviewer was right, but what the hell does that have to do with great acting. They got it right and this old hillbilly cried, that's right--cried--at every historical landmark they hit. Oscars for Joaquin and Reese--that's all I want.
Walk The Line update 03/19/2006.
A retraction is in order. Not only have I come to realize this movie beats all the singer biopics, in my opinion, it beats all biopics and, indeed, has become my favorite movie...period. Read Jack Shaw's comment below. It's worth your time.(I did exactly what you asked and resisted a comment on a comment, but I gave in even though I tried).
Oh, and by the way, if Dan John Miller wasn't channeling Luther on the guitar, there is no such thing.
Great lines from the movie:
June Carter...June Carter...when will you be mine? (sing it to the tune of Hey, Porter).
June: I surmise you haven't been to bed. An intoxicated Johnny: surmiiiiiise....
Luther Perkins: It's in A....A (nods 'yes' to Marshall Grant).
June: I got tangled!
