reviews

"The film is a revelation. Loving and leering, it must be seen to be believed -- and felt, because it is that damned good." -- The Dallas Observer

"...The best work we've seen in years..."
-- Stuart Alson, Executive Director, New York Independent Film Festival


"...the viewer might be forgiven for confusing dramatics with documentary reality. The premise of the film cries out to be developed into feature length proportions."
-- Tony Byworth, CMP, London, England


"John Lloyd Miller's award winning short is a 17 minute riff on the rough and rowdy life of country legend Johnny Cash." -- Variety


"...one of the most talked about film shorts... A tour de force! Miller's film has found instant success."
-- DirectorsWorld, NYC


"The most amazing thing in the festival...only 17 minutes long, it's a very strong film... It blew me away."
-- The Nashville Scene


"...an extraordinary film...believe me, this little slice of cinema will shake you to your foundation."
-- Robert Oerrmann, Music Row Magazine


"A powerful short... Collie's performance was captivating... He's more Cash than Cash. Great dialogue, great acting..." -- Don Franken, Executive Director, Method Fest, Los Angeles


"A surreal minibiography. The highlight of the festival." -- The Star-Telegram, Ft. Worth, Texas

"...sweaty, moody, intense, extraordinarily focused, a strong short that deserves to be expanded into a feature."-- The Tennessean, Nashville
