Walk the line * * *

Who? Themos, Dimitri
Where? Arclight Hollywood

Although Joakin Phoinix does an excellent job, I believe that Jamie Foxx as Ray did a better and more demanding job last year. The movie has first class performances also by Reese Whitherspoon and Robert Patrick as Johnny Cash's girlfriend and father, respectively. The concert scenes are very well filmed, but although the movie is overall very well done, it felt like a remake of Ray with country music, rather than a very original film.

The music and songs at Arclight sounded perfect. Also, I started noticing the differences between analog and digital projection: in analog the screen is flickering too much and the colors are not always 100% accurate. It's good everyone is switching to digital gradually.
