Movie Reviews

Too much talk, not enough music
Steven Hellerstedt | 11/19/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Five stars if this is a referendum on Johnny Cash, three stars for this premium-priced dvd.

The songs are good - Cash was a great entertainer, and the chance to see him through almost fifty years of performances is welcome. The `Half Mile a Day' documentary is informative and somewhat adoring, with a number of performers and record-industry folk attesting to Cash's greatness. It gives you a sense of the man behind the music. A peek rather than a critical examination, but satisfying enough.

Still, `The Anthology' pretty much repeats everything in `Half Mile a Day.' The songs are presented complete in Anthology, chopped up in Half Mile. Some of the talking head comments appear in both programs, as well.

Half Mile includes a bit of Cash singing `Turn! Turn! Turn!' with Judy Collins, which kind of indicates the dvd producers had access and rights to Cash's old television program. As a fan with extended demands for premium priced dvds, I'd have appreciated maybe another dozen songs - from the television show, or somewhere - and that much less talking heads.
Johnny Cash....need i say more?

"If you are a Johnny Cash fan this is not to be missed. Every time you here him sing you wish you knew him. He makes himself sound and makes you feel so accessible to him. I feel like I know the man through his music. I just wish I did!!"
