I love country, Blues, rock-n-roll and the 60's atmosphere I think we are witnessing a crisis in the world of music. She has ceased to be a living, beautiful, touching. She began to resemble marching marches, devoid of emotion. Not think any DJs will be rewarded with the fact that his life will take an autobiographical tape or write the book. And in this opinion be convinced, in spite of such films as "ray", "walk the line", "Crazy heart", "the sea" and etc. All these films are beautiful, all video o musicians roughly the same age, all they are filled with the spirit, touch, but will be removed if same pattern... First shots — childhood heroes, then the heyday, attachment to drugs and alcohol, then rethinking and rise to new heights. As a rule this place movie ends and give us the facts of the lives of the characters and their achievements. Sitting down to watch these movies, you subconsciously, with an accuracy of 90% may represent the development of events. And if you look at a movie with this perspective, the values not him so much. With the other hand, analyzing this movie at the bricks we forget home — the movies are full of soul! They shot not in order to say a new word in cinema. Looking these tape, wonder what wonderful songs were before, how amazing the actors are, what feelings arise between them. Your leg somehow the entire film beats the rhythm, and on the face a pleased smile. And let me tell you, such feelings for me, more important than innovative ideas.

And now a little directly on the movie "walk the line". Many have said on the story about acting, but why I saw the reviews of the same... I was impressed by how Joaquin got into the role of johnny cash. He just got them at the time of the shooting, and his voice is so similar to the voice of the great musician that one might think: "Born Joaquin on 70 years before he would become the Cache". I had previously impressed the actor, but after "Features" I truly admired. Reese also played great, but honestly, I was not a fan before, not are now. In whole, all the rest of the cast looked good but im too much carousing-and nowhere — the airtime is the main characters. Very pleased with the songs of other musical geniuses of the epoch, it's nice that Cache is not began to make very remember that was and other.

In General, for those who wants to plunge into the world of the 60's, great music and see a brilliant game of actors — strictly recommended! All the rest — just it is advisable to see)

PS I'd love to see movies about such groups as AC/DC "Nirvana".

Probably should start with that I dwell in the uttermost delight from this film. The film is named in honor of one of the most famous songs of johnny cash and is a biography. Proniknoveniya the story of love person, family relations, Oh disappointments, falls and victories. It is not just a movie about a man who was the star of country music, this story is just about the person who is hurt, sad, fun and it's a shame. On my opinion is still history of how to break even the strongest person, not having support from his family and under the family here is understood as not only wife and children, but and parents and especially the father who gave such a clear preference brother johnny, what was willing to die johnny, but not him brother. We are experiencing the main character, who, how and a large number of people around the world, exposed to various human weaknesses and passions. Johnny all my life was looking for love with nice people, but didn't find it. It does not understand the wife, she does not support any of its beginnings actually, I think she she understands little of what he wants, because at first she needed the money, and then it was necessary that the husband was constantly at home. It is not used to sacrifice something to achieve something else, it all immediately. It is not willing to wait and endure. Her complete opposite is June Carter, who as well as myself Jon many times disappointed he lowered his hands. But the main difference between his first wife and in June that the second understands and accepts John as he is. June has always been with him in contrast Vivian, which was next only when it was all good. Reese Witherspoon played his character for which is absolutely deservedly received the Oscar. By the way, I actually noticed that the character of this type is very bright and vyjgryshnym: suffice it to recall, for example, Jennifer Connelly, who won an Oscar for the film "a beautiful mind", where she played a character very similar to June Carter. I think this is the purpose of woman who loves — be end person. whom I love!

I do think that Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix put the soul in your heroes, because they didn't just play them, what is the main activity, they got yourself overwrite all songs that are in the film. Acting on my opinion at all on top. And I think Joaquin Phoenix not just not given the Oscar for my peer, he had to get it.

In General, great movie, awesome actors and awesome songs for which is rightly put to film.

10 of 10 points.

I doubt that among the music lovers there is a person that does not know name johnny cash. And not have to love country music or rock-n-roll, to understand who is. Many modern musicians, is dedicated to him their songs, doing covers of his hits, or just celebrate the huge impact that johnny had on their work. Literature so the same is replete with mentions of the singer and she misses opportunities to use it music as a soundtrack.

A truly legendary figure. Strong voice, confident look, black suit. He was not only superficially harsh and brutal, but and creativity whipped the audience like a slap in the face, so powerful was the energy. And now, thanks to the film "walk the line" we can look behind the scenes learn about one of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century.

This biopic has instructed the Director with filmography is quite a controversial — James Mangold. On account of his many famous paintings, which, the however, the genre differ from other. Among his papers can be found and psychological drama girl, Interrupted and a Comedy melodrama "Kate and Leo", and a detective Thriller Identify, and Comedy "Knight and day", and even the recently released blockbuster "Wolverine: Immortal". It seems, for what genre is James not take all you will do well. Such is the wizard to all hands, and biographical tape "walk the line" is good proof of that. The film is qualitative, holistic, music and stylish. Disadvantages, however, also exist, but not spoil the General impression.

The fruit and gave closely with the by johnny cash. We can be sure the veracity of featured events, and more — not have the right to condemn the actors chosen for the main role, so as is responsible directly to the spouses themselves and the Cache.

On the shoulders of Joaquin Phoenix has an important job — portray the screen itself is a legend, and he brilliantly coped with this challenge. Let externally it wasn't very similar to johnny (even the famous Heikinashi scar over the lip of the creators do not began to hide) however, in energy terms he made the look on all hundred. Yes there, he even learned to play on guitar with zero, he performed all songs than showed tremendous musical talent. If it is not was an excellent actor, he would have become a rock star, but everything was developed we have the pleasure to witness it excellent acting. He would Oscar had taken over this role if in 2006 opponent was Phillip Seymour Hoffman (blessed memory) with a biopic "Capote".

However, we have the audience, no the statues are not need of would make sure exceptional talent and skill Phoenix, we all can see screen.

The main female role went to the blonde in the law — Reese Witherspoon, which the screen turned into a incendiary brunette June Carter, the love of my life johnny. It is the story of their relations has become a key line in the movie sliding a even music, because it is unknown what the pit would Cache, no love for the woman. The title of the movie "walk the line", is so name one johnny, the text of which is more eloquent than any explanation.

Reese in turn only dyed her hair for this role, learned how to sing and sang all songs of myself, but and his game has shown enough as a serious actor level than earned the coveted statuette to the Academy. Fair or not — everyone decides for himself. My personal opinion — Reese let well played, but on the background of the Phoenix was lost, and the fact that the fee exceeded the fee Joaquin in whole 4!! times, it causes outright confusion. However, this all the nuances of the film business, and not us them to delve.

From minor roles note Robert Patrick, which 2005, played two stellar daddy — Elvis Cache. And it was not the only similarity of the paintings "Elvis: the early years" and "walk the line". So that Cache, the initial stages of his career literally came to Elvis on the heel. So, in 1953 Studio Sam Phillips Sun, helped Elvis to find their sound, and a year later, in 1954 looked and johnny cash, who, after a clear advice of Sam, so also moved in the"right" direction. She is it's time to make a film about the Phillips, no we may never be learned these legendary musicians.

So, the similarity of pictures is not is attributed to the disadvantages to the creators, so it happens. On the contrary, it was quite funny to see those same streets, those same scenery in a second time.

Because it's a musical picture, not can not to discover the sound movie. The acoustics were great, sometimes I had the impression that I am directly on the concert and operator only spurred its visual impact, choosing the most successful and winning angles. Well when you can feel for yourself the rays of lights?

Style movie impeccably designed in the spirit of his time. For example, only one Joaquin changed for the entire film as much as 56 suits, the models have been carefully recreated from the archives of the family and fans of the singer.

Meticulously crafted was and script film based on the story from James Keach, a longtime friend of the Cache, which, four years is not wanted to leave copyright.

In General General, we get a biographical picture of high quality, lasting two a half hour, you can learn about the childhood of johnny cash, about his relationship with his parents, about his journey to stardom, of heavy drug addiction, about the relations with his first wife, and finally — about the incredible love of Dzhunn Carter.
