Review: My Darling Vivian

My Darling Vivian is a love letter to Johnny Cash’s first wife Vivian Liberto with whom he had four daughters and initially a great romance. Narrated mainly by those four daughters, it is an eye opening corrective to the Johnny and June story we’ve all heard that entirely erased Vivian from his life. The documentary is also an intimate chronology of Cash’s rise, his addictions, his failures, and his family.

Country Strong

Country Strong is at its best when the music is playin’. Unfortunately, the stuff that happens between the songs is Country Weak. So – if you don’t like country music to begin with – this movie’s not for you.

Crazy Heart

Crazy Heart almost went straight to DVD and that would have been a crying shame because then hardly anyone would have known about what is probably Jeff Bridges’ best performance to date. Thankfully, it did make it to theaters and you can go see Bridges playing washed up country singer Bad Blake.
