Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Walk the Line (2005)

Directed by James Mangold

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Ginnifer Goodwin, Robert Patrick


Pretty solid acting and vocal performances by Phoenix and Witherspoon, and a great supporting job by Patrick.

Unfortunately, the story doesn’t really stand up. Cash is portrayed as a tormented young man with pretty serious drug problems who takes his issues out on other people. We are never given a real reason to care for him, so why should any of the characters?

Nice costume and set design.
