Review by anonymous (posted on 18-Sep-2006)

Joaquinn Phoenix played such a fantastic role in "Walk the Line"! Love to see more of him in more movies and he is so natural. My husband and I have Watched "Walk the Line" since it has been realeased every either a Friday nite or Saturday nite. Wonderfully casted along with Whitherspoon. They both sounded wonderful and we thought they sounded better then the original artist even thou we still like the original, but they were great! After all that hard work and suceed that is what is very amazing to us! We still think that he deserves much more than Capote! Keep up the great work! Joaquinn!
