The untold story of 'bad-boy' Johnny Cash, his talented but troubled manager, Saul Holiff, and a son searching for his father in the shadow of a legend.
The Man in Black was, of course, Johnny Cash. Saul Holiff was his long-time manager, a dedicated, remote, often cruel man who committed suicide and left his son with a lot of unanswered questions.Jonathan Holiffs documentary is an investigation of his fathers life and that of the celebrity who dominated it for years. The Canadian-born Saul was a self-made man, an ambitious promoter with a love of music that brought him together with one of the great figures of 20th-century pop culture.Both Cash and his manager were strong men with serious weaknesses; we learn of their triumphs and failures, their mutual resentment and envy, their troubled relationships with their families. The film is respectful but never hagiographicit shows the good and the bad, the public and the painfully private.What sets the story off is Jonathans discovery of his fathers diaries and audio recordings. These are revelatory, for the filmmaker and for us: a behind-the-scenes look at the business of music, the pitfalls of success and the tensions of a friendship that would eventually dissolve.Mixing found footage, creative re-enactments and poignant voice-over narration, the documentary tells a riveting story with creative means. Its an act of catharsis for its maker, and a fine piece of journalism to boot.[Vancouver International Film Festival]
