this movie is great. it seemed like it was german-engineered to win oscars, i think. wookie phoenix ( ) and reese witherspoon were great. they sung terrificly! i'm not even a real big fan of cash's music, but i was really getting into it. and that tour of all of the sun records artists (presumably) must have been monumental! jerry lee lewis, elvis presley, and johnny cash. man. it's two and a half hours long (aka, harry potter length), but i didn't really anxious about leaving! the only criticism i can think of is that there was a part where johnny cash was strapped for, well... cash. ...and then a few minutes later he buys a big lake-front property. i'll chalk that up to keeping the movie under three hours, though. really good movie!
