Love that flic! Thought of the Sun Studio scenes in that movie while actually at Sun Studios in Memphis! That movie really brought that place and those events to life!
Yes, the soundtrack quality is very good also.
Witherspoon's singing performances were amazingly good. I recall thinking she could have been a successful country singer if her movie career were not so lucrative also.
Joaquin Phoenix gave a great and gutsy performance also as Johnny Cash but his vocals in the flick pale in comparison to the real thing.
I can also recommend the sound on "The Legend", a very comprehensive box set, "Personal File", which is just Johnny and his guitar in his recording studio back in his prime vocal years singing and telling stories about various songs that meant something to him that he could recall from over the years. It is like he is there in the room delivering a personal concert just for you!
"Folsum Prison" is an involving live recording also.
