I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line
Ahh, Cash. Johnny Cash. The Man in Black. American Folk Hero and Country Idol.
Dead as a dodo, they are now only going to make a movie out of him (don't say remains).
As most of you know, I like Johnny Cash. He is my hero and I liked him very much. When I heard Joaquin Phoenix (Hotel Rwanda's Jack the Cameraman) was playing Johnny Cash in this movie, this movie has been marked as a much watch.
There a quite a few bioflicks over the years like Ray (Ray Charles), Hotel Rwanda (Paul Rusesabagina), that Ronald Reagan mini-series, Farentheit 9/11 (Bush's first term) and I think Living With Michael Jackson (documentary). Ray and Hotel Rwanda deserve an Oscar. Maybe Jamie Foxx and Don Chaedle sharing it will be good. Farentheit 9/11 is filled with some holes and gaps so it wasn't good and LWMJ was shocking.
According to IMDB.com, Mr. Cash asked Joaquin Phoenix to play the part and Mrs. Cash gave her blessing to Reese Witherspoon to play as Mrs. Cash herself. Of all the choices, Reese Witherspoon? Legally Blond? When I saw that, I laughed it out so hard I think my head just kept thinking of how is this movie gonna look like. Well, a country and world music fan such as myself will watch this movie. I think in Malaysia, I'll be the first to queue up for the seats because I wanna see the life of The Man In Black.
