Tricky Dick and The Man in Black

He walked the line.

Johnny Cash is famous as one of the biggest rebels in music history, but he was two men in one.

Republicans loved him, Democrats loved him, people from the sticks adored him, as did big-city slickers.

It was because he was that rarity — an authentic man.

One who loved country and church, but also one not afraid to speak out in support of anyone getting the shaft, whether they were convicts, Native Americans, or young people trying to find their voice.

Few films capture that duality quite as powerfully as this doc does in 59 lightning-quick minutes.
