True or False Trivia: Walk the Line

TOFT

One of the fascinating pieces of trivia below is true*, the other is false. Do YOU know which is which?

Walk the Line (2005)

1) The scene in which Johnny Cash pulls the sink off the wall was not scripted; Joaquin Phoenix actually pulled it off the wall.

2) Johnny Cash has been dead for years, and for this movie to bring him back to life as if his death never happened is completely irresponsible, if not downright dangerous.

  1. I don’t know about “Mangold the Auteur”, and might need a bit more proof that this is really a director worth paying attention to, but this is a pretty watchable film. I found the story and film-making a bit predictable, like the usual bio-pic formula that you might expect if you’ve seen, say, coal miner’s daughter, or any other bio-pic of someone you love. What makes this movie stand out is the two lead performances. Reese is unbelievably convincing as June Carter Cash. She almost disappears into the role. And her singing! Who knew???

    And Joaquin! We’ve been waiting for him to deliver a really spectacular performance for some time, and this is finally it. I, for one, resisted the idea that ANYONE could portray the man in black, but he does a pretty fine job. Not just an impersonation, but actually a performance worth watching. Really fine.

    Watch for the Jackson duet. Really awesome.
