My Father And The Man In Black Review


Good

It's fascinating to look at the life of Johnny Cash from a new angle, even if this documentary feels somewhat self-indulgent and a bit amateurish. But it has a strong father-son kick to it, as filmmaker Jonathan Holiff looks into the story of his dad Saul, and in the process documents an iconic musician's life from an intriguing perspective.

Jonathan barely knew his father, so after Saul died he takes the chance to go through his files. And he discovers not only some startling details about himself but also the remarkable story of his dad's relationship with Johnny Cash, whom he managed for much of his career. It turns out that it was Saul who encouraged Cash to team up with June Carter. And that Saul took the very young Jonathan on the road when Cash went on tour. But Jonathan's most important discovery is a series of audiotape diaries, in which his father talks about him in ways he never did face-to-face.

Yes, in many ways Cash is almost an accidental part of this story. The film traces his life and career through Saul's eyes, including his descent into drugs and his later adoption of fervent Christianity. But Holiff's real focus here is on his own discovery of the father he never really knew. And this is the point of view through which we see the archive footage, which includes rare scenes of Cash and Carter performing, backstage home movies and private photos.

Lindsay Lohan 'Determined' To Leave The Betty Ford Center

Lindsay Lohan is apparently "determined" to leave The Betty Ford Center though prosecutors are having absolutely none of it. According to TMZ.com, doctors at the famous rehabilitation center have cut Lindsay off her precious Adderall, which she always considered a deal breaker.

Sources connected to the situation say Lindsay is going "crazy" and is desperate to move to another facility that will cater for her needs. The Hollywood star has taken matters into her own hands and have researched other facilities, finding one on the west coast which she believes is the perfect venue to spend her 90 days. It is believed that Lohan believes the Betty Ford Center - home to previous patients including Robert Downey Jr and Johnny Cash - is "old school" and not sensitive to the contemporary problems of young people.

Law enforcement sources say prosecutors are "unbending" and will not approve any move. One source said, "She had 45 days to find a suitable place.  She didn't listen to her people and just did what she wanted so it's her problem now. Not gonna happen."

Johnny Cash’s Family In A Feud Over Will


Johnny Cash JOHN CARTER CASH JUNE CARTER CASH

Country music legend Johnny Cash left more than cash to his family. He, unfortunately left the sort of cash that would spark a family feud between his son and four daughters. The deceased singer’s 100 million USD fortune was almost entirely left to his son – JOHN CARTER CASH. Coupled with the current strength of sales of the late singer’s records following his death, John Carter Cash seems ready to make an additional 50 million USD.
