Walk the Line

I can't express how much I really liked this movie. It was just released here last weekend and it was awesome. Knowing the story, I really got to watch the preformances of Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon. Both where dynamite, especially Phoenix doing the little nuances that captured John Cash.
And of course the music of The Man in Black himself just provides a great soundtrack to the film.
Stealing alot of the early scenes was the supporting cast as the Sun Records tour. It really makes you think back to those early days of rock. I mean there was once a tour that had Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, and Carl Perkins. That must have been one hell of tour to have seen. Even if you didn't fully understand what you where seeing. I can only wonder, if the next generation of Icons are roaming around the country together and wonder what they could be talking about. Of course in this day and age, of the internet and MTV that would never happen. But some times it is nice to dream about. I wonder if we have lost as much as we have gained with "modern" society. With out the struggles have we become a society of the mediocre....
Anyway its a great movie about love and dreams.

A lot of people don't know that Chuck Norris was originally slated to play Cash. Another little tidbit is that in the scene where Phoenix rips the sink from the wall--it wasn't in the script. He was just so into the character and the situation that it just happened.
