Audience Member A wonderful look on Johnny's life. I've seen many bios on Cash and this one might go down as #1. A must see for any music or Cash fan. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member While not as good as Scorcesse's Dylan Bio, this was still an excellent portrait of the man's life filled with interesting conversations and revelations. It's hard to sum up a man's life in 90 minutes, but they did a good job. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member fantastic film about the life and work of a true artist. loved the interviews and commentary about his life and passions. i'm so thankful for this genuine individual - i miss him very much... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Very well done; much better than I expected. Very real, with no punches pulled.
