"Walk The Line" by Yojimbo

The story of rock'n'roll country singer Johnny Cash, from humble beginnings and childhood tragedy, through to stardom and drug addiction. All the standard music biopic ingredients are here, juxtaposing the glamour of rock stardom with the drudgery of home-life set to a suitably fine soundtrack. Cash fans will enjoy seeing the context from which his songs sprung, but the rest of us will find little we haven't seen many times before in various other films. The performances are all strong and technically it can't be faulted aside from the fact it could've stood to lose 20 minutes in the middle. Well made but otherwise unexceptional.
