Walk the Line

November 27, 2005

The wife and I caught Walk the Line tonight.

In a word, it was fantastic.  Okay…three words.

The screenplay, the direction, the throwaway references and random cameos and Reese Witherspoon were all outstanding.

But Joaquin Phoenix…Joaquin Phoenix was a revelation.  I still can’t believe that was him singing.  I thought it was pretty incredible that Ewan MacGregor sang as well as he did in Moulin Rouge (after all…being Scottish and singing…), but Phoenix, he nailed Cash’s voice.

He’s earned himself an Oscar nomination for sure…possibly a win.

Highly recommended by both myself and the wife.  And…if you know us and our tastes in movies…that’s a pretty rare thing.
